Does anyone else out there love bloomers as much as Nina and me. Here are mine and below my new pair  I made this week, from the spare bit of a table cloth. Yet to put the elastic around the bottom, anyway. I've showed  you mine its only fair you show me yours. We both feel we need a bloomers appreciation society.

Tussie Mussie Sunday

 Tussie mussie is a posy or small bouquet it existed in some form from at least medieval times. I thought we would have flower Sunday. I can show you how to make the Lavender cages/bottles for those who missed it and couldn't get on the last course. Tussie mussies are easy and we will do flower arranging in quirky containers. Also how to wirer and tape flowers and berries to make button holes or headdresses garland.  ideal if you want to make for weddings or gifts. It will have to be in my kitchen as so we can make lots of mess all materials inc .with a homemade flowery seasonal snacks, a flowery cake I would imagine. places go quick so early worm catches the course. August 24th. 11-1.30  £35.  Hope you are enjoying all the lovely flowers at this time of year

On the 26th of July is Craft day at the lovely Otterton mill in East Devon. A place to see flour milled, the craft gallery, music,chickens and more.  I will be there showing you lots of crafty free demos and exhibiting my work along with another very clever textile artist.
Next event you may like is Killerton Spun a celebration of natural fibres. Saturday 19th and sunday 20th.of July. Killerton is a National Trust Property with beautiful grounds seven ish miles from Exeter. We lived there for eight years many years ago so I can not wait to go back to visit.
But what ever you do this summer I WISH YOU CRAFTY FUN AND SUNSHINE HX

Chai latte

Reading one of my favourite blogs the 'little red suitcase' this morning, which gave me lots of summer inspiration to cut the coffee and other things. I do make my own herbal easy teas, but Trying  to make up a chai latte mix of spices is not as easy as I thought. Have any of you had more success?
I seem to have only made a mess, but I do have a rather nice smelling kitchen table now.

Bee Brave

This post is for all my friends and people I know who are having to be brave.
I Just wanted to share this with you. A dear friend made it for me when I was very ill, I would carry it in my pocket when strength was needed to carry on. It is good to be reminded how far we have come and what seems easy to one person is a leap of faith for another. The pattern I think you all know is from the bee keepers quilt. hx
