"Spring Parade"

Hello friends, as we are approaching Easter I wanted to share some beautiful fabrics that I have just listed.  All are from Makower UK and are so pretty and full of the joys of Spring.

finally...included for no good reason, other than I really love these flowers, a couple of pics of my tulips and daffs from the weekend!

Thanks for looking, see you soon THL friends!
 hugs, Charlotte x

Spring has Sprung!

I think I have spent too long cuddled up in front of the fire! I can't believe it is a month since my last post lovely readers.  I haven't been idle I promise, there is always plenty to do and I have been busy working on both of my websites re-stocking, listing, ordering and making.  I have finished some lovely homespun heart raggy hangers which are one of my most favourite things to make.  I have a scrap basket the height of the house and I love diving into it to find the perfect fabric for the next project, well what else is one to do with all of those end of bolts!

I feel inspired by the change in weather.  We have have had the most glorious unbroken sunshine here on Dartmoor for the last couple of days.  Still a little ice on the car this morning, but deep blue cloudless skies all day.  Miss Homespun, my lovely girl is finding it so much easier to get up for school now the dark mornings have passed!

It was so very tempting to spend some time gardening but I knew it would be so chilly in the shade and I really have too much work to do,  instead I enjoyed the weather as a spectator through the window.

Definitely time to change the background on here, I found this gorgeous vintage Easter template from Plumrose Lane and couldn't resist!  Snowflakes have been banished until November I think and I have introduced some fluttery butterflies to the site, one beautiful butterfly brushed it's wings against the kitchen window this morning and I knew that Spring had sprung! xx
