What a Week!

I have had a really lovely but busy week, including visits from two of my daughters and their families.  My youngest daughters visit included the makings of an afternoon tea, what's not to enjoy?  The girls just loved the horse rides........

My youngest Grandson was not going to be fobbed off with yoghurt, he soon got rid of that!  Cake  was the order of the day!
I have spent an hour a day on the wedding crochet and that is coming along quite nicely.  I even managed to buy vintage hankies and evening bags as gifts for the bridesmaids from me, when we have our bridesmaids tea.
I have had a wonderful time doing some shabby chic wreaths and bunting to decorate the stall at the spring fairs.  The lace and ribbon was delight to rediscover from my store and does include some vintage lace which is always a delight for me.

I added a few pearls just to give it a finishing touch.  I was really quite pleased with the overall effect, it would be perfect for a shabby chic wedding which seems to be quite popular at the moment.
I also had fun with some fabric brought back from America making little shopping bags, bibs and bandanas.
Finally a little treat for myself, well it was Mothers Day and I am a Mother.  Remember that little bag of vintage treasure sourced on holiday, I have made it into a delightful piece of art using a embroidery ring.  I was thrilled with the outcome, but I will let you judge for yourself.


 I am sure it will be a piece that I can look at and smile!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
