The glorious weather continues over here and we all feel warmed and energised by the sunshine. Being able to throw open the doors and windows of this small cottage and migrate to the garden makes such a difference to our wellbeing. The children and I love to be outdoors and we are so lucky to live surrounded by beautiful countryside, the adjoining woods and fields provide us with a giant adventure playground and it is so nice to see the children play happily with twigs, grass and earth.
Of course all this early warm weather has caused me to examine the wardrobes, children do have this habit of growing don't they? I have had flurry of sewing for Tilly, dresses are so simple, but I find boys things much harder to do so nothing for Dylan really but I have promised to let him help put together his very own quilt instead.
The linen dress above was so simple and I have been looking for suitable place for Toe Tapping Tilly, this seemed just right.
The daisy smock is finished too and I am pleased with the way it turned out although Picperfic just sent me this fantastic link which I am wishing I had seen before. Guess I will just have to make another something else to embellish then...
We are off on a short trip tomorrow, a visit to my home city, Belfast. Hoping for just a little more sunshine, please.
