Good morning friends. Well it appears that I have missed August altogether. I don't know exactly what I have been doing, only that I have been busy doing it. There have been a lot of ups and downs.....more of those firsts without my husband....which folks don't seem to get easier. I am very happy to have warmer days and throw open my windows for the soft breezes.....my favourite time of year.

I am however very pleased with my slow stitching project. I have a little collection of BEATRIX POTTER cards and postcards and a booklet....gifts from UK friend Sue and my dear friend Bev from her trip to the Lake District. If you read my blog regularly you will know that I am a huge fan of Beatrix Potters art....her Botanical art was so underated. I do wonder if it had been recognised would we have had Peter Rabbit ?? So I decided to make a designated folder to hold my treasures.....I drew and stitched a little Peter Rabbit for the front and back.
Oh almost forgot. I shouted myself a lovely, totally frivolous and outrageously expensive gift for my birthday......as in exchange rate and postage. A little box of vintage snippets from UK business The Dollshouse Vintage.....I had salivated for a very long time over Debs gorgeous vintage finds. I thought if not now? When?....it came beautifully packaged and even smelt beautiful.
Well folks I think thats about it. I hope wherever you are you're well. Also a big thank you to those who leave me comments that I am unable to reply to.....I appreciate you all taking the time to read and comment.....and to my blogging friends who tolerate my infrequent posts.....thank you xxx
