It was a happy mail day today when my order of Bliss arrived from the Ladybug Quilt Shop. This is destined to be a new quilt for Sarah. We will be giving her room a make-over during the summer holidays – with an aqua and red theme.
I can’t wait to get started on it!
Here is the finished bunting for Sarah’s bulletin board. I just taped the divine twine to the back of the little flags instead of punching holes in them. Sarah was thrilled with it.
I have a thing for mini bunting at the moment – I love the mini bunting that Anna made to decorate her colleagues computer, and the Ikea lantern that was given a bunting makeover by You Had Me at Bonjour . When I was at Kikki K today I spotted some sweet goodie bags with a bunting design (I was very tempted but resisted buying them).
Have you seen the new muffin tins and liners at Ikea? I spotted them last week and was unable to resist. I like the shape of the muffin – a bit smaller than my regular muffin tin. Of course the taller shape impacts on the crunchy muffin top to muffin ratio but this is made up for with the elegance of the slim shape.
I made up a batch of Spiced Pumpkin Muffins for afternoon tea. You can find the recipe on this post.
I picked up a copy of the Country Christmas Issue of Handmade Magazine while I was out today. It features a couple of my projects. It was a challenge to make something in the country style as I seem to gravitate towards brighter colours these days. It was fun to use some of the Christmas prints from my stash – I bought these fabrics when I was living in Houston about 10 years ago.
Here is my Cosy Christmas Set
and a festive tea towel.
Nearly time to pick up the kids from school – hope you all have a great weekend!
