Lovely Things

Lovely things
On Saturday for my Mother's Day treat P and I went to visit Spring in the Barn  at Mells. What a lovely event, we chatted to lots of lovely people and bought lovely things. We met the very friendly and talented Becky from Dots and Spots as well as Rebecca from edamay .
Can't possibly cut this ribbon up!
P and I then treated ourselves to a visit to Frome and a climb up St.Catherine's Hill. This is full of lovely craft and vintage shops including Millie Moon, where we bought some gorgeous ribbons and booked P onto a children's beginning sewing machine day in the Easter holidays.

and even more lovely things!
On Sunday P gave me this lovely sock cupcake she had made at Guides - what a great idea. It came with an origami flower and a yummy mummy mug. She also baked me a cake - all by herself, and literally spent hours decorating it Sunday afternoon.
Ahhh!
Mr Clown will soon be winging his way to his new home in his cosy sleeping bag. It is lined with flannelet and has a little snugly pillow to go with it.
All snuggled up
I am currently designing my own smaller clown, the same size as the pirate, but at the moment he looks more like a farmer! Some tweaking with the details is needed, before he is ready to enter the circus ring.
Have a good week and go and wonder at all the crafty cleverness over at Handmade Monday with Wendy.

Clowns usually give me the heeby jeebies but I quite like your little lad, he does not look in the least bit scary, in fact he looks rather sweet tucked up in his little bed :)

Little Pickle is following in her mum's footsteps, isn't she? Lovely makes from both of you! x

Those ribbons are to die for. P has made a wonderful job of the cake. You must be a very proud mum. I hope the sewing machine class goes well in the Easter Hols.
