Sunday Catch Up

Just a little Sunday catch up.

It's been a bit milder here for the last few days but just over a week ago we had some snow. It lasted just long enough for a few families to get some sledging in on the hill opposite :) 

My hands often get cold even indoors whilst I am working so I bought these beautiful wristwarmers from bebbyjumpers to keep them warm.

You can probably see my wool-eater blanket tucked under there. I have now finished the 11th's getting quite large now at 44" by 26" and it's very cosy :)

I've so enjoyed making this nautical themed patchwork baby quilt for my sister Ros. I love the thought that a new little baby will be snuggled under it or having fun playing on it :)

And look at these lovely vintage Laura Ashley curtains I found last sweet......I love the bears in the wheelbarrow best :)

I was so thrilled when I found this fabulous vintage French casino card shoe.....I have this in mind for a certain person's birthday present ;)

I've really enjoyed this little catch up -  hope you have too!

See you soon.
