A word in your shell like...

A friend and I were shopping recently and one of the things she was looking for were some ear shaped sweets. We didn't find any but I found some shell pieces I thought were ear shaped on the beach while I was looking for more pebbles. Now I know where the saying comes from.

Beach Pebbles

I have been searching for beach pebbles in the shape of a heart to put around pot plants and I think I have found a few. (If you squint a bit and use your imagination)

Herbert James Draper

I blogged this image earlier this year and have been trying to find who the artist was and after some research I finally have the answer. It was Herbert James Baker

Small Project Finish






Earlier this year I spent some time in waiting rooms knitting dishcloths, but I was also working on this little English Paper Pieced Quilt. I find English Paper Piecing a great portable project and I have started a larger one using small floral prints. It will take some time to finish.




This is a little sneaky peek at the next paper pieced project using tiny floral prints and Apple Green homespun.

Peppercorn Tree

I have been asked by a few people what this is. It is the fruit on our Peppercorn Tree I don't know if they are edible or not but it is very pretty.

Happy Mother's Day!





I know a lot of wonderful Mums, and I met some truly special ones earlier this year. A Very Happy Mothers Day to all of them and especially the Mums having their very first Mothers Day.
