Happy Jubilee

Hello all, I hope you are enjoying the long royal weekend! We went to Greenwich yesterday to do our bit in joining in the celebrations. Definitely one of my favourite London places with its cobbly streets and market...

Such a typical British bank holiday weekend with the rain... but hey, that's what we are all about!

Admittedly, we were quite lucky as found a nice spot in one of the pubs on the river to watch the boats go by - away from the pesky weather.

It's great to see the Cutty Sark has been restored at last...

Have recently discovered photo collaging and I totally love it!
Here is a garden one that I did with some of my herbs, pansies, forget me knots and strawberries...

I have been getting a bit crafty with the crochet again and russled up these cute mobile phone cosies..Very thereaputic to make, especially as my phone has been the bain of my life recently... so many things wrong with the flipping thing.. I need a new one!

And the pink crochet flower is the one that came free with Mollie Makes recently... really loved making that one. Bit of a challenge to work out and took me two hours to make but got there in the end.

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend!
