Bunting & a Challenge

So finally Mum & I made bunting! Some may say a year too late, but we love it anyway. Our new garden was devoid of any flora but we're getting there. The difficult area is the shady part so we're helping it on its way with the bunting :)
After blog hopping last week I came across a scrap challenge site called Color Stories Inspiration and here is my first entry, they have a different challenge up each Friday. Here is the remit :)

and here is my entry
and here are some more photos :)

A Scrapbook Page

It has been so long since I completed a 12" x 12" scrapbook page, maybe coming up to a year!
I have been busy making Keepsake Canvases & continuing to record our everyday in my Project Life album, as well as cooking, making bunting etc. I will share bunting photos when the sun comes out next!

So for this layout I was inspired by the July Sketch Challenge by Scrap365. I saw the sketch on Pinterest & knew instantly I wanted to "have a go!" What's even more amazing is that it's a selfie!!!

I've used Studio Calico, Echo Park, Pink Paislee, Tim Holtz, K&Co & Kaisercraft products - oooh and a Christmas Cracker embellishment. See, I knew I was keeping them for something ;)

Thanks for stopping by :)

My first Quilt!

Last week I completed my first "Raw Edge" or "Rag" Quilt!
Whatever it's called I love it, I love that it was sew easy (groan!) and I also love the fabric.
It's a "French General - La Belle Fleur" Layer cake by Moda which contains 40 10" x 10" squares. This I bought on Ebay.

The Beautiful Batting I purchased from a Wonderful Quilting shop quite local to us called "The Bramble Patch" in Weedon, Northants. (talk about kid in a sweet shop!)
The backing is from a brushed cotton single sheet from Dunelm Mill.

My friend Jane completed one a year or so back and I knew then I needed to have a try. In the meantime I've been pinning ideas onto my Fabric & Sewing board on Pinterest.
If you take a peek you can see the sites where my inspirations came from (mostly from Bloom & Blossom) Mine is different in that I haven't bound the edges and my quilting shape was slightly different. I feel confident now to have a go with different designs next time!

Thanks for stopping by :)

Week 18

"April Showers bring May Flowers"
so they say
(who are they anyway?)
Whatever! Let's hope all the hard work in the garden will pay off over the next few weeks.

In the meantime... Happy Week 18!

Hello from Wispa
(yes I named my cats after chocolate bars)

Long time, no blog!

Well the slightly warmer weather has meant most of my time has been spent outdoors with the whole family sorting out the gardens. We were lucky enough to move to a house with a more or less blank canvas garden wise. It's only taken 5 months to actually get out there a do anything! So this quick post is to share a few photos taken over the last week or two :)

Thanks x
