Goodbye Summer...Hello Autumn!

It's sad to see the long evenings disappear...I would say the lovely long hot days too but as we have never had them this summer we won't miss them now Autumn is here!! On the positive side the leaves on the trees are changing colour and the autumnal scenery is lovely!

Alternative 60th Birthday Card!

I sewed this heart by hand as an alternative to a 60th birthday card and presented it to the recipient in a box!  I just stuffed it with stuffing but a nice alternative idea may have been to stuff with lavendar or even aroma beads scented with her favourite perfume!...maybe next time!
