Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! For now the weather is being nice to us and we've had a few sunnier days in a row - so we've been out and about making the most of it. Yesterday the kids and I set off on our bicycles and rode to a nearby wood and they ended up splashing about in the river.Wish I'd thought to bring the camera and show you some of the views. :-(
I've been creating of course in between times and after a treat of ice cream in the evenings! Yum!
I love penny rugs and bought myself a circle stencil in Michaels which is great for cutting different sized circles.
So after lots of sizing and cutting and blanket stitching I've made a diamond shaped penny rug!
I got some new wool felt on holiday and love the colors.
I also put one of Carole's rusty old bed springs to good use with the bird made from a pattern by Tennessee Ridge Primitives.It's always good to get prim supplies and as well as the rusty springs I had been on the look out for 2" high wooden reels on which I can attach pinkeeps. Thanks to Michele from Soggibottom for sending me these and they will be used very soon as I've started the pinkeeps.
Thanks to all you bestest of blogging friends who wished us well on our 17th anniversary in my last post. We went out to dinner that evening and had a lovely time.
Well that wraps up things for the time being and I hope you all have a blessed weekend.
