The Royal Wedding tomorrow and the prospect of our street party has bought out a flurry of bunting and in order not to be left behind on all this activity I have made my own - bonkers version of those patriotic little flags! Could not help but to applique some rabbits and doggies as alternate flags.....Have nt finished them yet but will post when I have....and if I have the guts to display them in public!

butterflies and bunnies

Happy days when I realise how wonderfully talented my mum and my Fran are.....this little chap is something mum knocked up in time for Easter and the stitched butterflies is something Fran did over 3 years ago on the old sewing machine whilst chatting about her friends at college......amazing...

lots of white hankies

I had really given up hope of ever seeing my hankerchief tree flowering as I bought it 15 years ago and it had never shown any sign of wanting to grace us with its spectacular white bracts that look like hanging hankerchiefs. So imagine my surprise when I realised that this was the year that it was going to happen!
