More fabric flowers and a quirky cat

I have now completed 6 fabric flowers for an up and coming swap, so now to choose what to send to who :) 





Hubster bought me a lovely quirky cat print from the Towner Art Gallery in Eastbourne :)

Seaside fun

Took the bus to Pevensey Bay today, lovely pebble beach, rustic houses and some fabulous quirky ideas for a beach garden :)

Then onto the local pub for lunch and a drink - happy days πŸ’™πŸ’™

Pin cushion and an art gallery

Yesterday I felt in the mood for sewing, so I got everything ready i.e. fabric, ribbon, buttons etc etc, then I realised the foot pedal and plug for my sewing machine were nowhere to be seen :(  I spent half an hour turning the flat upside down with no luck.  When my husband got in he found it within 4 minutes - in my ironing basket!!  I have no idea how it got there :)  Anyhoo I did a little pin cushion that evening using scraps from an old pair of trousers.  The striped fabric was the lining of a jean pocket :)

Today we went down to the Pier, walked a while and then popped into a favourite hotel for some lunch and a drink.  We then wandered round to our local art gallery 'The Turner', which was full of lovely surprises!

Have a happy Easter  πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

Strange name, beautiful place.

This week we went to a little village called Rottingdean (5 minutes from Brighton), but miles apart in other ways.  Scattered with a few quaint shops, nice pubs and the stunning Kiplings Gardens (of Rudyard fame), the perfect place to sit and unwind :)

It also has some fabulous properties that make your jaw drop πŸ’™

Enjoy....
