Busy,busy catch up!

I thought it was about time I did another post. As usual it's been very busy here absolutely gorgeous weather although I do wish we could have some rain, just a little for my wilting veg.
So this is what we have been up to, last year I bought Lily Emma Thompson's book Lili's wish and inside there was a pattern for a rag doll. Well I finally got round to making her.

Then I made a new carrier bag holder as my old one was yuck!

I've partaken in some siiting in the garden, finished my hexagon blanket and started another.

And mainly I've been gardening, gardening and more gardening!

This morning I've cut all my hedges, by hand and it's so hot out there but no thunderstorms here. We've also been walking the dog, who is fine now, these are the fields near my house.

admiring the magestic foxgloves and looking for fairies.

A couple of purchases were made from Amazon. I'm loving the Abel and Cole book some fab recipes in there, haven't had chance to look at Sophie Dahl's yet.
I've probably also been spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter looking at everybodys updates thus neglecting my blog.

And I've been given these awards from Little Gem and Marble Rose, who incidently makes the cutest pencil cases I've ever seen so pop over and have a look. Thankyou both, your blogs make me smile too.

Another thing that made me smile was the label on the RockNRolla DVD I bought last week, must be something to do with health and safety or a new diet lol.

Such sad news last night, RIP Michael Jackson, he was a music genius! I remember being so excited staying up late for the showing of the Thriller video.

Oh my goodness Lili is lovely indeed!!! How clever you are!!! Where is she going to live then?
Thank you for you kind comment about my pencil cases, I didn't know how well received they would be - people are so generous.

I love your blog - keep it up!

My dad and I stayed up so we could watch the Thriller video too. Im not a MJ fan but I still love the thriller video and he was amazing when he was a child. Farrah Fawcett has died today too. Very sad! The views where you live are lovely X
