Firstly I had to share a photo of a beautiful Allium from my garden. We planted the bulbs last year and we have eight of the beauties smiling away in the garden. Can you see the Bumble Bee? When it's not rainy I love sitting outside and watching them. Such busy little bees.
|Norman the Gnome is very happy in the garden|
Lovely fabrics have been arriving into the You me and Mabel. Confetti by Dashwood Studio was so lovely I decided to make some cushions and a quilt for the lounge.
|Squares and half square triangles|
|A little applique|
|Lots of pins needed to baste the quilt|
|I did simple diagonal quilting from corner to corner|
|This always seems to happen!|
I was really happy with the way the quilt and six cushions all turned out. The fabrics are available in my shop.
Other lovely fabrics and patterns have arrived including.....
|Birdsong by Dashwood Studio|

I love supporting other independent sellers and was lucky enough to snag a beautiful notions pouch by Indigochicken This beautiful pouch has travelled across the pond and I adore it.

I entered a Kal (knitalong) this spring, The shawl was made with lovely Norah George Yarns and its the first time I knit lace work! Stitch markers were my friend and helped me stay on track.
|A bucket full of treasured yarn|
Lindsey had an open weekend to celebrate the opening of her new studio/shop where she sells the most gorgeous candles and other lovely things. I was really delighted to see the quilt I made her for her birthday last year out on show.
Well I'm off now to walk Mabel, and I promise to blog next week. Thank you reading, happy sewing, knitting and crafting.
