I'm going to start with a ta-dah moment! I made this cot quilted blanket for a friend's new baby last Saturday whilst the rain bucketed down. The fabric is vintage Noddy teamed with a green polka dot for a more contemporary look and backed in cream fleece. It has been hard to find a sunny moment to take a photo.
Whilst I was about it I made a matching cushion for my unit at the antique centre.
Now a couple of weeks ago my bloggy friend Safia rang to very excitedly ask me if I'd seen the latest Country Homes and Interiors magazine. Well I hadn't so dashed out to find one. However I had to wait as Safia's had been delivered and it wasn't in the shops yet.
so, what had she spotted that I was so keen to see? Safia must be a bit of a hawkeye to spot these cushions and bunting and know they were mine!
They are indeed Jelly Jam cushions on display in a rather stunning shepherd's hut.
I met Jane from Plankbridge Hutmakers last year when she purchased my cushions and bunting for a Country Life photo shoot and here they are again. If only I had a beautiful hut to show mine off... it is my birthday this week and a girl can dream.
Mostly we've been trying to keep dry here but managed a swift trip to Portland Castle during a rare sunny moment.
English Heritage did a free day so we took advantage of that.
Soaking up a sunny moment on the Chesil on the way home.
