Blimey, it’s been a while since my last post, I have slightly lost my sewing Mojo recently and have been busy with other things. I started running again last week, with Mr C in Pre-school I finally have the time and I am not really a gym kind of girl, I get very bored but I love being outdoors so running it is. I have found a nice route directly from C’s Pre-school through a quiet lane and then out into the fields, I am not a natural runner, I find it quite difficult but I run in intervals (at the moment run 3, walk 2) which means I get to have a good look at my surroundings in between huffing and puffing my way along, I love watching the seasons change on my run route and really need to loose some weight after having the boys so this suits me very well.
I’m loving the green everywhere, we have been lucky to have so many sunny days, all the garden is springing into life and I have been planting seeds like crazy. We made the most of the weather at the weekend with a trip to Groombridge Gardens and Enchanted Forrest, near Tunbridge Wells in Kent. The boys loved it, the peacocks were giving us plenty of tail displays
and I fell in love with the woods and all their fun details including these little ‘fairy’ houses along the river banks.
It was also my Birthday over the weekend. I don’t really do much these days, I was very pleased to get a lie in and nice breakfast complete with a Paddington Bear cake and balloons, hummm, wonder who chose those those then!
C, has rediscovered F’s Linen Bunny. Mr C has a Linen Cat but he had the above in bed for cuddles after waking in the night and taking him down from the shelves, C was feeding him carrots at dinner the other night, it’s sweet to see as this really is mainly a plastic toy household now the boys are getting older.
Despite not doing a lot of sewing I have a number of projects in the pipeline. I fell in love with the above Water Bouquet in mint by Amy Butler (from Saints and Pinners) for making new Lavender Birds, I love picking out the ribbons for the tails.
There are other new designs that need to be made up into samples, just need to get sewing instead of prancing around the garden planting things and absorbing the sun, on which note I had better get on as the day is disappearing fast. I win the award for the most uses of the word ‘love’ in one blog by the way 😉
I hope you are as lucky with the weather as we are and are finally feeling the effects of Spring.
