No!! we never grow up!!..............


Time to paint............


Time to visit fleamarkets and buy bargins........... (I love Katies little birds)



Time to sew lacy door curtains.....................

I love time off work and home, I love playing, I have swopped my childhood toys for slightly different ones, but I still like to play with the same things...... paints , fabric, spending my pocket money on chocolate and ice lollys ha ha. But I notice now the days are all too short to cram in all of the things I want to do, I bet you are exactly the same, now where did I put my tube of white oil......and my chocolate buttons

Happy playing my lovely friends

Sweetheart, there are roses coming through the window!!!!!







The Culprits....sitting so silently!!!



M'mm I thought..... the bathroom has a green underwater glow about it and what is growing through the window frame........oh yes the rose needs some urgent pruning.
The rose still looks very large and very healthy this evening, why!!! because as we started to cut some of it down we saw a whole family of Blackbird fledglings, all fluffed up with big eyes and open beaks. Now how could we take their lovely home away....we will try again next week ha ha.
Have a fab week.
Love lynn xx

Wonderful Ribbons......


I want to share with you this fabulous lady....Mattiecakes on Etsy, ribbons like I have never seen before, looking all old and vintagey, or stamped with fabulous illustrations..... lots of styles and in the most fabulous array of colours, all wrapped onto beautiful aged stamped tags that are a work of art in their own right.I have been buying these for a little while and using them on gifts and even to sew with ha ha....and I thought the time had come to not be selfish and keep Mattiecakes to myself ....but share her with you.
Can you share something nice with me, that would be fun xxxx

The paths of the Goddess











Who now knows the ancient tongue of the moon? Who still listens to what the Goddess says, the langage of the land, has slipped away into the well of the past, and only the rocks and mountains remember what was told us long ago. Yet the land still sings in the wild and open spaces and wispers still in the flowers and grasses. I have found comfort and inspiration in the silence of these places, and I am most grateful for it.
I have been inspired this week to make an embroidered bag, using just odd bits from my sewing box, very make do and mend, with my inspirations coming from some of the things I love...what inspires you to create, what inspires you to be original.....
With love xx

A quiet week..............






I have stayed at home this week, I collapsed at work last Friday, due we think to my new tablets!! so I am having some small amount of time off from my job to allow the new tablets to work. I have been doing some embroidery so I thought I would show it to you, I love the idea of patching old blankets with embroidered pieces so I have started to make a few, then I can assemble them..to often I come across beautiful blankets with iron marks or holes, this is a way I can save them, and make them pretty again.
I also made myself a small apron with an embroidered pocket, this has kept me quite quietly occupied, and out of trouble ha ha.
Sorry for my poor replying, you have left some lovely comments that have really cheered me up. have a lovely Bank Holiday.
Hugs Lynn xx
