Large Embroidered Lavender Hearts

These pretty little hearts went off in the post on Friday and hopefully haven't got stuck in the snow somewhere. I had the lovely order in for this ladies Nanny. They were for her daughter and niece to give to their Great Nanny which I thought was great!! What do you think??

Close up of their names on the reverse. Really loving these fabrics!

Frosty November morning

We're lucky enough not to have the snow.......as yet but we've been having some very hard frosts which result in pretty mornings aswell as freezing cold ones. This morning the frost never really went so I got out and took a few photos on the fallen leaves. They always look pretty edged with ice.

Oh and a couple of tiny frozen fungi.

Flying visit to Ireland

Sorry I've not posted for a while. It's all been a bit crazy most of the work i'm doing I can't show you yet either. I've had a few craft fairs which I'll post about but this brief post is flying trip to Ireland on Tuesday. My other half needed to go and look at trailers, exciting stuff you may think or maybe not he he. But it was a chance for an adventure for the day and a little plane trip...... I like the taking off part. Anyway after a very foggy and very early start we wondered if any planes would be flying driving through the country lanes but once we got there it was ok. We got picked up at Belfast international which spoilt my ideas of a shopping afternoon when we realised how far out the city it was. We went round the factory if you can call it that and looked at the processes of very well made trailers. here's a couple of snaps.

- one massive tyre!!

And Ofcourse we had to have one of these in the airport after lunch on the way home.
