Sorry I haven't blogged anything for a while, really I haven't had much to say.......... There only so much can show in the garden, and I haven't done much crafting or knitting recently either.

But Monday was our Grand-daughter Caitlin's sixth birthday.
Let's all go to Crealy they said. We travelled from Somerset in torrential downpour with our picnic, presents and (extra) cakes and waited in the carpark for everyone else to arrive. The rain stopped about 11am
After it finished flowering over a year ago I just chucked it in the garden. Didn't do anything with it until I tidied that patch of the garden, I just tidied it up by cutting of the shrivelled stork and cut the leaves off and tucked it in a corner. I spotted a bud in the rain the other day.
My friend asked me if I could recover her bar stools and make some cushion covers too. She provided the fabric, there was loads left and knowing she liked Seagulls I asked her if she would like a cushion with a Seagull.
The pattern for the seagull is from Bustle & Sew magazine. You can also get to Bustle & Sew by clicking on the picture on my sidebar too.
