Jubilee Fever

Isn't this weather just so beautiful!!!! 

After all that rain we had, one of our fields flooded, the poor cows were all stuck on one little dry patch, I was coming back from the shop one evening and I had to stop and take this picture - it just looked so beautiful. The field is dry now after all the lovely weather we have been having and the cows have a dry home once again!

Well I'm getting a bit of a Jubilee magpie at the moment, anything with a crown or Union jack on it and I feel I have to buy it, it's actually getting a tad ridiculous but nevermind! 

                                                       Oh and not forgetting my lovely Emma Bridgewater Jubilee mug :) 

 Have been suffereing with a bad neck so not done alot of crafting this week.

However last week I did make some Jubilee clothes for my girlies (told you I was obsessed)

They are both made from the lovely Makower London fabric that I posted a little while ago. I used a tutorial on the skirt from MADE which you can find here - I love Dana's creations!

Now this tunic - I completely winged it and made it up as I went along, and it turned out too small. I'm hoping I can let the arms out a bit as the holes are too small, and then hopefully it will be okay!!

I had a wedding cake and cupcakes to do last week, and it was such a beautiful colour scheme - sage green. The colour on the cakes looked so sophisticated. The weather was lovely too for the happy couple :)

 I finally ordered the rest of my yarn to get my blanket finished, I feel like it's been going on for an age! I had a bit of a nightmare as my usual online stockist didn't have any more of one of my colours so I had to search the web in a panic trying to get some for a decent price instead of £5 p/50g (I begrudge paynig that for yarn!!) I managed to find some on Ebay, so I have no excuses now!!

Hope you all have a great Bank Holiday weekend and enjoy your Jubilee celebrations, we dont have anything planned as yet.... I do have the bunting up though ;)

Take care all,
