Well, despite the weather doing it's utmost to try and dampen the Jubilee Celebrations, the current husband and I enjoyed a fabulous day.
Our Cul-de-sac friends were supposed to meet up and have our celebrations in the field at the bottom of our street...unfortunately the forecast was not good, so our dear friends offered the use of their home...
Will and Carol, you are just the best...
Carol wore her best flag headwear, which waved frantically everytime she spoke, so funny.
Sheltering in the garage/gazebos :(
Look at the sky...you can't help but grind your teeth a little...
***Ooops Brit moaning about the weather alert***
We all had a smashing time. God save the Queen.
Well, onto other things...
I am very happy to have a four page article in this
Stampinton publication (USA) 'Sew Somerset' Magazine...
All about my bird brooches and generally I chat about what I do...it was funny really because I sent off a collection of bird brooches to the Publishers, without recording what I had sent.
A few weeks later, I was contacted by the Editor and asked if I would send a 800 word article about the brooches. Well, do you think I could remember what I had sent? Not on your nelly.
Anyway, after some head scratching and much sticking out of the tongue in deep concentration, it all came together in the end.
The memory, let's say, ain't what it used to be.
I am in excellent British company, (aswell as American) as Priscilla Jones has an article too.
The other thing I wanted to mention is that I have a new love.
My new iPhone! Now don't roll your eyes!!! I adore it!
It is so easy to use and I am addicted to the Instagram app.
As you can see from these pics below, pieces recently made.

I have entitled this Prim head wearing bunny ears... 'It's a funny old world'!
Well, that's me for today.
Thank you for stopping by. x
