Fun Spring days


This cake just wouldn’t photograph colour-wise. I love the composition though Sorry! I couldn’t bear that photo and had to swap it out. I spent all last week baking and cooking for a digital magazine article that’s due now. Time to finish everything and send it over!

Beautiful day in London today. Today I will be finishing Astrid’s grey double gauze dress – using up some Linnet stash from 2008. Today we’ll be potting up our seeds that are now huge seedlings and possibly having some time to sit down and watch the new Studio Ghibli film Arietty, which I haven’t had a chance to watch yet.


Yesterday we went up to Selvedge and it was closed! Wanted to get some more Liberty bias binding and look at all the lovely things in their shop.

On Friday Yvonne was in London with Anki from Zilver Blauw and we went to Selina Lake’s Homespun Style book party. It was lovely – Cherry came up as well and we had a fun afternoon hanging – just the girls. There’s a photo in Yvonne’s camera which I need to get my hands on.

I was one of the lucky 13 who got a goodie bag with my book purchase. Well worth it – it came with a Mollie Makes magazine, Mollie Makes calendar, a pillowcase from Rose Hip and some other lovely little surprises.

Loving these spring days, especially when there’s a bit of sunshine around.

    Looks beautiful to me 🙂 Sounds like a lovely weekend. I only realised Selvedge was there the other day when I happened to walk past. It’s only 10 mins walk from home. It was closed when I was there too! Will have to pop back soon. I’d hoped to make it to the book party too, but alas, no time. Glad you enjoyed it. Have a good week!
