Feeling the heat ...

Oh my goodness it is hot this weekend - look at that blue sky! The temperatures are some what above our normal average for the month - and I love it! I am not a sun worshipper but I love to be out and about and I know it definitely lifts my mood. I have bought some plants to put into baskets and pots and a few to scatter through the borders too. I love the cheeky little faces of the pansies (one of my favourites) and the colours. So here are a few just waiting to be made comfy in their new surroundings.

Not much happening on the crafting front. My excuse is that it is too nice to sit indoors and sew although I may bring some things to cut out into the garden with a nice cool drink. I am behind on my Sewspoiled sew-a-long, I promise I will catch up soon. It has been a very busy week in my day job and I have been sewing for that in the evenings aswell. I am also trying to get prepared for a craft fair next month (19th June Conlig Church Hall) and this will be my first craft fair in the middle of the year and not at Christmas so I really have to think about what I will be making to take with me. I somehow don't think that people will be interested in frosty snowmen or cosy red santa's lol.

This is a photo from my garden, I can't show you the whole garden as it looks a bit rubbish (I plan to work on it this summer honest) but I thought you might enjoy this photo of my solanum.

I am also hoping to visit this fabulous place
Mount Stewart House and Gardens later this afternoon. It is the most fabulous National Trust property with the most beuatiful gardens and it is a particular favourite place of mine if you are in the area you really should visit.

Another lovely bloom from my garden. 

Enjoy your weekend whatever you re up to :)
