It was a busy summer! Quite a while ago now (blushes ) I was lucky enough to win the Simpatico bundle on Katy from "Monkey Do"'s blog, courtesy of The Village Habedashery.
I've stroked it, and looked at it, but haven't brought myself to cut into it (I've never had all the fabrics from a range before!) . I think though, that I may split it up. I was toying with the idea of a Stained Quilt (courtesy of Sarah from Narcoleptic in a Cupboard) with a charcoal coloured sashing, but I think they will have more of an impact if I mix them up with other fabrics - they almost play too nicely together - does that make sense?So I am trying to force myself to split them up and store them in the stash.
The summer passed in a whirl of being at work,, buying new school uniform and school shoes (including discovering on the first day back to school that I had managed to buy my daughter exactly the same size shoes as she already had.......)
We had a fabulous week in Cornwall, where there was quite a bit of beach visiting and wave jumping
and some of this
We visited the National Maritime Museum on the one really wet day and had a fantastic time.
We also visited the amazing Eden project. We last visited 10 years ago when it was still fairly newly opened. I can't believe how much it has changed (the incredible heat in the tropical house, even early in the day, has not however.)
Then it was home for a mad week of work, washing mountains and cleaning and repacking the caravan for a trip to Holland.......
