daffodils & dragons

hello march & happy st. davids day!

a special visitor came to the welsh town of llandovery today.
he visited a few shops in town {sadly our shop wasn't on the list :( }

however, the deli across the road was so we had a good view of this certain person.

hrh the prince of wales
i'm pretty sure he's pointing at our shop & saying "ahh that's a pretty shop, lets go there next time"

quite an exciting day here, everyone was all smiles :0)

natural cotton cushions

new handprinted floral cushions are now in my etsy & folksy shops!

hurrah! for the sunny weather yesterday!
most of my day was taken up with a little cushion photoshoot. it would of been nice to have a big white room for snapping in! but hey-ho a teeny corner upstairs is what i have ;0)

spring is on it's way! it was certainly in the air yesterday! so warm i had all the windows & doors open. not sure where it's gone today though, the clouds are back :0(

to get in a spring mood here's a pretty spring themed treasury

happy friday!

bloggers block

held back on blogging lately.
i haven't had chance to take any great snaps of any great interest really.(how boring!) it's been especially difficult to capture good pics with days of working without great natural daylight! lack of sunshine & bright days hasn't helped inspire me either. {you see the vicious circle}.

the lack of blogging had gone far enough so today i had a flick through my album of 'february photo's' and found this little lot.

this i guess is a catch up post, a bit of a mixture :0)

fabric has got a hold of me lately. just waiting for fillers & mounts before i can show them to you properly :0)

valentine's {was only last week but feels like ages ago} ~ doily love heart was given as a gift along with some yummy shortbread. {hence no pic of shortbread, they were that good!}

a gorgeous screen printed card made by the lovely lisa ~ which is also an excellent keepsake! a frame to pop it in is on my 'to get list'

my first workshop of the year was on saturday ~ yet another fab morning with a smashing group, trying out some simple block printing. it was good to get all inky & messy again!

more fabric ;0)

saved best til last; my boy! ~ he's 2 today! happy birthday smartie x
{special tea for him tonight then}
