July adventures

Hello lovely bloggy friends hope you are all well ,i cant believe were now in july ,the months are flying by ,we have been busy here with sports days,exams,trips ,my eldest son has now finished all his exams and recently had his prom,ooooh he did look smart in his suit ,i felt proud of myself for bringing up such a lovely lad ,i can still remember the day he was born ,seems only yesterday ,he has left school now and starting college in september so a new chapter ahead
I popped into town yesterday to buy more fabric from a lovely market stall ,all the fabrics are 100% cotton and reasonably priced ,really dont need any but i just cant help myself ,i went into cath kidston to see if there was anything i fancied in the sale ,of course i saw lots of things but im really trying hard not to "spend " at the mo ,i have too many bills to pay at the moment so i got these sissors and tape measure which were very cheap and i did need them ,did i say need or want mmmm!!
I,also came across this amazing place just passed the cath kidston shop ,it was down a narrow alley full of "soft pots "which are basically plant pots made of tights and decorated with colourfull string,ribbons etc ,i was fascinated ,i have arranged to go back and make one myself
I have also been moving my room round ,"WHAT AGAIN " i hear you say ,i know i love to rearrange rooms and do it all the time ,much to everyone elses annoyance!!heres what it looks like now
Hope your not too bored of looking at " my room " pictures !! Been doing lots of crochet lately too
Also been making a few things for my shop
Patchwork cot quilts
Lots of childrens cushions and bunting
Wedding bunting and garlands
I have hardly spent any time in the garden this year ,it seems to rain endlessly and the garden has been flooded a few times ,here are some roses i picked ,they are by far my favourite flower
Also been filling up my scrap books with favourite pictures i cut out of magazines
Also treated myself to these two this month too ,full of lovely makes and inspiration
To add to my collection! well the girls are in from school ,mouths to feed before they fill up on snacks so will leave you with some housey pics ,you may have already seen them but have a look anyway x
Thankyou always for your lovely comments i really appreciate them ,much love francine xx
