My Birthday...

Yesterday I celebrated my birthday with a very ralaxing day planting out my new herb garden (in the old truck tyre) and just generally pottering around the garden...it was so lovely!!!


This is the view of my new herb garden taken from in my sewing room...just to the right of this is my Weeping Cherry which is just about to burst into flower

How lovely is my new mug...can you see the little buttons and cute box it came in 

and my fabric which only just arrived in the post yesterday...Rosies Love Letters and French General Rouenneries Deux from Shabby Fabrics...they have some really good specials

When doing this photoshoot I grabbed one of my flowers that I had only made last week

But look how similar my flower (from a different fabric range) resembles the one in Rosies Love Letter fabric!!! I think I may have to come up with a pattern using the fabric and flower together!

You probably can't see the chair that my fabrics are sitting on, but it was an old timber high chair that I recently sanded and varnished with exterior varnish so I could but it out in the garden with a pot plant on it. But it really came up so well that I think I might have to re-think a use for it!

I hope you are all having a lovely week!
