Last summer when Rachel and I visited Hever Castle we saw this combination of flowers and decided we had to have it for our weed patch. So now its spring I'm going this weekend to buy the plants, soil and weed killer but there's a slight problem, I don't know what the plants are !
Here are the fabrics I bought from the V&A, the one up and close and personal is my favourite. They had it in another colourway but I preferred the green and blue.
My friend Laura is expecting a baby this August but sadly has some problems with the pregnancy and is on bedrest. She asked me if I could teach her to sew. Now dragging the machine round and sitting on a chair isn't an option so I took a hand sewing kit for her. We spent the morning chatting drinking copious amounts of coffee and sewing 4 inch squares into 4 patches. I must say I really enjoyed it, hand sewing in company is a lot of fun.
