Hi, I hope you are having a good weekend, here in the U.K. we've got a 4 day weekend to celebrate our Queens Diamond Jubilee. There's a lot going on here in the U.K. this year and I'm very proud to be British.
Our Queen is celebrating 60 years on the throne, what a great achievement, another 3 years she will be our longest serving monarch.Also this year we are hosting the Olympics, with the Olympic Torch Relay taking place as I speak.
Anyway, with all this going on, the shops are full of patriotic things, food, drink, clothes and houseware. I couldn't resist a metre of this fabric.
I made some bunting with it for my conservatory.
A few other patriotic buys.
Hubby bought me this tapestry two Christmases ago and decided to dust it off and try to get it finished.
Can't beat a glass of Pimms in the summer, it's got to have fruit and cucumber in the glass though !!!!
I'll be at the seaside celebrating so whatever you are doing, have a fabulous time. I won't have any internet access so will catch up with you when I'm back.
