How does your garden grow

The sweet peas smell heavenly. They are the last thing I look at before closing the front door at night, and the first plant I check in the morning. There seem to be new blooms daily. My cucumber and tomatoes are coming along nicely. They love this hot weather and need watering morning and evening at present. Hope you are all enjoying the garden too. X

More makes

Hello sunshine, hope you are here to stay for a while. Phew it's been hot this past week but so lovely to have sunny days in the garden wearing shorts and strappy tops with my flip-flops. I picked a little posy from my garden which now sits on my bedside table. The sweet peas smell heavenly. Do you like my crochet bunting I made for Coco Baby's bedroom? Also I'm hearting my Noro shawl which still needs blocking..... Don't think I will get much chance to wear it yet. Toodle pip for now. X

Dresses for Coco baby

I have so much inspiration buzzing in my head since having Coco baby. I love making bits and pieces for her. Do you like these little dresses? Picked up some fat quarters and pretty bias binding whilst out shopping for just a couple of pounds each. A few hours sat at my sewing machine and TA DAH..... Pretty dresses. The dress with the colourful fruit was made using a tablecloth bought for 99p from the pound shop. I used curtain lining to line it as the fabric isn't the best quality but what a bargain. I'm sorry about my post being contained in one paragraph. I blog from an iPad 2 and can't seem to blog in the same way as with the lap top. Does anyone have any good advice regarding suitable blogging apps? Do you like my ginger boy Ambrose? He was enjoying the sun at the weekend. He seems to be looking less for his sister this week.
