I've been up and down this week with emotions drowning myself in endless cups of tea, far too many of those yummy chocolate chip Yorkshire tea biscuits and playing Duffys Cd at at volume that even the kids tell you to turn down ( good job we live in a detached) I have to just accept what comes and try to see the positive side,well I'm trying to find the positive side first! (It didn't help matters that my lovely Cath Kidston phone got wet in the rain last week too and no longer works...sob... AND the freezer isn't working but decided to pack in the day after we had just done the 'big shop' ...bigger sob)
Anyhow..The three B's..
B no.1 BLIGHTY
I'm jumping on the Blighty bandwagon, just in time for St. Georges day on the 23rd of April. I love our British flag combining the English, Scottish and Welsh flags and the colours red white and blue, it seems several of our favourite magazines did too recently. Fred also bought a cushion made from a lovely old a vintage flag which he blogged about.(I gave up trying to buy any old flags on eBay as one lady in particular was buying hundreds of the things)
A while back I made some Union Jack cushions that I sold on eBay, inspired by the over-priced but very lovely,Jan Constantine ones. Funnily enough most were sold to a lady in Jersey, but stupidly I never made one for myself, so in true Blue Peter spirit, here's one that that I made earlier today...
This is different to my others,some of which you can see in my 'homemade' flikr. I've used a tea towel, some French checked fabric on the back and two of the Fabrics that I won from Sara's giveaway, for the GB. I was amazed at how rusty my sewing was, I hadn't done any for a good few months as the sewing fairy had been replaced by the stressed-out devil gremlin and my sewing machine has lost a leg and is therefore acting a little drunk. But I'm quite pleased with it for a first go. I may make another...maybe with UK or ER on instead.
B no.2 BODEN
I would like just about everything in this summers catalogue, even though I resemble Fatima Whitbread in a skirt and therefore feel the need to do a comedy walk whenever I try one on ( I don't posses a skirt or dress) I still want everything, including skirts,spotty dresses and that girls' amazing figure in the bikini on the front cover, BUT, alas I can't so I'll dream on...
As promised here is a gratuitous shot of my oldest hen Mavis's bosom-shaped eggs...look familiar ladies?!!!
It certainly cheers Pete up when he has a pair in front of him for breakfast...
EGGS, eggs that is!!
ps. Don't forget the giveaway ends this Sunday!
