Union Jack love.........

I thought last weekend that I would have a little play and get in on the Union Jack love that is sweeping through blogland at the moment.

I had been saving these lovely big pom poms for ages, so it was lovely to put them to use.

I finally ventured to our city library and was delighted to be able to borrow some lovely books. Myer also had 35% off some of their cook books recently, so added some Jamie Oliver and Donna Hay to our collection.

It was Alexandra's school fair today. All of the usual stalls, cake, sweets, produce, plants, books, second hand, jewellry and of course food and more food to consume!

I was really pleased with this beautiful tea cosy. At last a sweet little hand knitted one in very tasteful colours.

The little posy of flowers on top was really what sold it! I think they are just so sweet.

Saturday is slipping by very quickly here, 3.45p.m. and I am still trying to get the washing done! Roast dinner tonight - yum!
A wonderful weekend to everyone!

What a great job on the Union Jack pillow and yes it is a trend that I have noticed on a few of the blogs. I think it’s great. The tea cozy is adorable. Enjoy your books and the Tea Rose book looks interesting.

Love your new Blog look too.

Oh roast dinner - no there's an idea, not had one for a few weeks.

Lovely union jack cushion, they go for a fortune (and quite rightly) must try and have a go myself. I do love you pretty floral version.

Oh and a crocheted tea cosy - brings back some wonderful memories of my mum's old neighbours. Thanks for sharing.
Have a lovley Sunday.

Oh Leisa that tea cosy is gorgeous. I've just set up an exhibition for my craft group called; 'Sensational Tea Cosy's'. Members have made about 100 and they too are fabulous. Hope to have some pics on my blog next week...I too am busy, busy, busy at the moment.
