American Flavored Five

 Hello from this AWOL blogger! It's been a busy few weeks with lots happening. As the post title suggests there is a strong American influence in my post this week.  Last week my cousin was visiting us from her home in California. She was born and raised there when my aunt emigrated to the USA in the 1950s.  We have been back and forth several times and she and her husband are the dearest sweetest people, so we had a wonderful time together.  Lots of fun times sharing memories, old photos and lots more good food and sunshine trips.  Unbelievably the weather here in N. Ireland was great!

One four trips involved cycling - hubby taking a photo of my cousin whilst I took their photo!


So in honour of my dear cousin, I have listed these three American pillows on my Etsy.






And fifthly, after much stalling, i finished my daughter's American Rockford Red Sock Monkey doll!
She added the bowtie!
He is cute!


So glad to catch up with you all again!
Linking with Amy's Five on Friday HERE

Have a wonderful weekend!

May Day Monday Blues


Here in the UK, this is May Day bank holiday and the schools have a holiday too.  For me May means bluebells and I hope to be able to find a lovely bluebell woods and stroll through them!

In the mean time these are my blue Monday stitcheries to share with you.



Wishing you all a happy day and wonderful week!

Have a Merrie MAY
