What a lovely bank holiday weekend … well apart from Monday when it rained.  Prior to that it was lovely and sunny.  Hard to imagine as it’s been raining since.  Not that I mind, I’m one of those odd people that likes the rain … I know shock horror. 

Whilst it was actually sunny I made the most of it and pottered in the garden.  It got a little too hot on Saturday though so I made myself a sort of tent (?) using two voile curtains and my washing line.  The only problem was that Ruby kept pulling the stakes out …

It was the perect place to catch up on my magazines and sketch some new ideas and of course have a spot of alfresco lunch.   Nothing like some fresh bruschetta mmmmm

Just aswell it wasn’t too sunny all weekend or I would have got nothing done.  Inspired by the garden I made some rosey bunting.

Then whilst doing the ironing I looked at this skirt and thought… hmm it needs something

You guessed it …..

I just need the sun to come out now so I can wear it.  

I think I may be having a bit of a bunting overdose as I spent all day making bunting Father’s Day Cards with kids in school today!!

    Brilliant skirt – what fun! It would look great on a T-shirt too, if I dare mention another bunting idea…
