How are you all? I had a lovely evening at a friend's new place, catching up and enjoying tea and cake in her beautiful garden and lovely flat. I am very jealous! It was lovely to sit and relax and spend time with her. And I got to meet her husband who apparently reads my blog (Hi Matt!). Now I can test whether he actually does! I'm hoping we might be able to meet up more often!
Tonight I just wanted to show you some bits and pieces I have picked up! On Monday night after work I had to drop back an IKEA bag full of books to the uni library from my CBT coursework, so it was a good opportunity to drop into a garden centre we always drove past.
I picked up this cookie cutter for my baking....

I said it looked like a cloud, the fiance said it looks like a flower - what do you think?
When I got home - these were waiting for me! I will show you what I did with them in a minute.

When I got home I decided to see if the new fabric I bought on Sunday was suitable for our wedding favours. I bought the floral Cath Kidston fabric ages ago, not realising it was too small for jam jar covers. So on Saturday I bought some gingham fabric to sew onto them to make them big enough. I think they will look nice when they are done, but it's a lot of sewing to get done - 60 of them to sew!
Whilst at the garden centre I also convinced the fiance to finally buy me that Lavender plant he promised me! So now Lavender Court finally has some Lavender to live up to its name!
It's taken pride of place on our little patio table in the garden.
So with those cufflinks backs I made some scrabble cufflinks to sell in my folksy shop - here
I've already had an enquiry about them which is great!
Oh and these arrived yesterday. Tiny little envelopes for the seeds for our wedding favours to go in! I should have made them myself but I felt lazy!
