You may need sunglasses for this post.....we had a day round the house yesterday, merryn was feeling a bit sick and after being up 3 times in the night I didnt fancy my cars chances if we drove anywhere so I ended up getting my paints out with the kids. They both painted a canvas while I played around at painting a dolls face. I will do some paper machie limbs for her today if the rain keeps on and see where she takes me. Merryn is curled up with bear today in her pj's so cant see us having any wild holiday fun today.......may attempt a trip out though mmmmmmm well best get on with the day, hope you are all having a good summer bye for now.... time for toast and coffee x

Home spun fair

Morning, Im sat in my dressing gown with the rain pouring onto the conservatory, stalling letting the ducks out. Really dont fancy putting on those cold wellies(possibly with a slug inside....eek). So I thought I would quickly post about the homespun fair I did on sunday (yes in the rain).......... Luckly the event is inside a lovely old hall on the beach. We even had a sea view when you could see through the mist and driving rain. I actually had a really good sales day and came back with a big empty tub as I sold lots of toys to bedraggled and wet kids. I think lots of parents were keen to cheer up there little ones after a washout beach day. One of my mooing cows went to a really sweet 3 year old girl. I could hear the moo going off around the hall and by the end of the day I think the parents were wishing they had saved it till after the car journey home, he he he.............. One little girl was very entertained all day though (wonder if she was doing it deliberatley to wined them up).
I also made up this cushion for my eames rocker. I was in two minds when I found this tea towel in the charity shop wheather to cut it up into clasp purses and sell them, or to keep it for myself. In the end I decided to keep it whole and Im glad I did. I think its turned out great, although adam hates all pillows....... so I know when he sees it he wont be impressed. Well better let my poor girls out and collect the eggs (fingers crossed the slugs dont come for me and my wellies)Think the rain is stopping, hope you all have a fab week bye for now x
