    • I did finish the cushion a while ago and I don’t usually make housey things so thought I’d put it in. There are some lovely items and fantastic blogs over there πŸ™‚

    • It is lovely to see what everyone else has been up to. They are so inspirational! If you don’t find what you want there is always Etsy. And if that fails I’ll make one for you but you’ll have to wait until September (I’m sew busy). Have fun πŸ˜€ Avis x

    • Wow Hutch!! That’s three awards in one day. I can’t quite believe that as I haven’t been posting due to overwork 😦 I’ll do a hotch potch of all the rules of acceptance and post soon. Your blog has “fallen off” my reader (like many more of my other favourites) so I”m just getting round to catching up with them all again. WordPress problem I think. It was 13 degrees C here today. Sunny and still. Wonderful πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoyed your dip πŸ˜€

      • Ya I’m in the same boat, this is work keeping up with the ol blog by the time I am finished editing photos I’m ready for a nap, Hope all is well your way and yes I had a wonderful dip. Cheers
