A quick trip to the dentist yesterday was followed by a spot of shopping before going back to the clinic to hold the fort on reception.
I'm quite behind with the chores so am sewing and typing in between washing loads. If it doesn't get finished I'll live with that. The important places in the house are clean and the rest is a bit of a tip. Hey ho.
Last weekend I started my little girlie mat by tracing a design on to the linen fabric I got last week.
Rhubarb and custard cupcake - this one was the one of the rejects because I blobbed the icing but the taste is still there!
I've been working on a larger pattern - same design. I've also started a table runner - same colours but different design although they will work together.
The chinese supermarket sold all sorts of china too and I couldn't help myself and came away with a little bowl that is perfect for my Holland and Barrett snacks (oh my halo is shining this week)
The pink flower goes perfectly with the mat. As I was about the dive into the delicious dried mango, creamy cashew nuts and chocolate brazils, not to mention the sunflower seeds and other little goodies. It got me to thinking - I've seen something similar very recently -
- in Flossie's bowl.
It's a funny old life.
