Thanks Ikea!

Some gorgeous textiles at Ikea - as always.
Had to update Little P's curtains, so I honoured the Japanese
style and made 3 panels.
Now honestly, if you have a choice, why would you live with blinds?
I haven't been inspired much lately as far as new textiles go,
but I really do need to get back to Ikea
and do a bit of a stock-pile!

spring in the city.

I don't think there's a prettier sight in the garden than
sweet peas growing!
These grew from seeds, and are so tall now.
I love the delicate, white flowers that form,
and then become a pea pod almost over night. I'm very much enjoying the garden at the moment.
It's the perfect time of year, we are all in need of a bit of rejuvenation!
It won't be long now before we have some
fat, ripe 'beetroop' (as Little P says) and tomatoes ready to eat.
I know it's a cliche, but things really do taste
better straight out of the ground, and it's so much
easier than going to the supermarket!

Rural retreat!

Big D and Little P designed a cubby house over the break.
It was so much fun watching them (well Big D) build it.
She's 'doing it up' now.
Stay tuned for some old style gingham curtains!
