Good morning all - let's hope today is as warm and sunny as the last two days - this could be our Summer folks!
Just a few bits and bobs to share today.
At the top - a pile of fabric snippets given to me this week. I think they will make lovely dolly dresses or crazy quilt pieces.
The printed picture below was an idea I found on Pinterest for making crazy quilting so I thought I might give it a go. A creative way to use up scraps of fabric/lace etc.
On the right is a bag of threads that was a bargain at the car boot sale. The narrow pale blue ricrac was really pretty.
This little creature was sucking nectar with its long proboscis from our Aubretia flowers in the sunshine this week. I had never seen one before. It was about 2 cm long and furry like a bee. It had a pointed head and long proboscis. I looked it up and I think it is a Bee fly - Bombilius Major.
That's country life for you!!
Thanks for joining the mad bloghop that is the brainchild of the lovely Julia of the Stamping Ground.
If any of my blogging buddies want to join in with the WOYWW ATC swap then email me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pop one in the post. I think I made quite a few so first come first served.
Thanks for calling.
