I had a small piece of vintage French ticking, a bit of cotton fabric, and a beautiful lace applique, which my wonderful friend Alexandra had sent me ( along with many other things, post is coming soon ). I wanted something fairly plain and unfussy, and cottagy, and this is what I came up with -
After I had finished the heart, I got out into the garden and started getting some seeds into pots and trays. It was soooo lovely to feel the warm sunshine on my skin, and it was a real pleasure getting the seeds in, and a few plants into the ground. By 3pm it started clouding over though. Of course, the good weather didn't last, and as we left the house to go over to our friends around 7pm, the heavens opened. Impeccable timing, lol. We we treated to a massive thunderstorm as a background to a fabulous meal. They are wonderful cooks and had prepared some regional dishes for us, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We are so lucky to live in this tiny community and have such dear friends.
Today is a very soggy day yet again, sigh, but hopefully by Sunday things will have improved. Gotta go to some brocantes!!!
Wishing you all a very happy weekend,
