bird seed update

here is an update of my embroidery. It is going quite slowly as I am also writing some stuff in my spare time and we have my parents visiting which is fantastic and I don't want to miss time spent with them!!

so now I have to think of a border and do some more hand embroidery then I will start my squirrel embroidery!


flea market find..

Here is a doll house I bought in Femmøller flea market the other day, I bumped into Kirsten who said I might as well buy this as I wouldn't be able to get materials as cheap...just what Christian said too..! It cost 50 kroner about £5.

I have had a doll house project in my head for years I orginally wanted to buy a cupboard to convert to a house but then couldn't find the right one. Then decided to make it from scratch, also bit hard but could be fun.. anyway going to renovate this, story of my life, make trash to treasure...

I would like to get various people to contribute a little made item to put in the house so it's meaningful for Minna when she's older. I fear that I will get more pleasure from this than she will, she may be a tom boy and hate dolls...!!?!

Glad the toilet seat is down....

dream garden

today we went for a walk through Vistoft, our village, with Christians parents and my parents and called on one of the neighbours who have the most amazing garden this is just part of it and I got tears in my eyes as I think it the most beautiful garden ever. I could see fairies floating through the grass. The trees are enormous...sigh my dream garden love it to bits...


lovely summer...

so far having a lovely summer...
My parents are visiting and helping out with looking after Minna!

Have only done a little bit more of my bird embroidery, but it's going in the right direction.
will post a picture when it's closer to completion.

meanwhile here is one of Minna...of course!

Apparently Florence was thrilled with her jumper I made her! what a relief...
