Etsy Store

I have just launched my Etsy Store, having added a few items that I have made. I will be adding more as I make them so please come back and visit it often!


The twins have been having pottery lessons where they live in Devon, for about as long as they could walk. Now Gilby has joined them and it looks like he's really enjoying himself. 
And Grandpa's studio is a magnet for little potters!

But now the sun is shining I think I may step outside with a cuppa and my Kindle :)

Last week Ben and his friends visited Devon and caught up with the twins and this week Dominic and Alice are my daughter described the photo's.....Another weekend, another harassed Uncle' looks to me like they are enjoying the harassment!
It doesn't seem like Gilby is getting much attention but you can be sure he will be :)

While away we went to visit my nieces new baby girl, I made her a crocheted blanket out of natural cotton yarn and a liberty print bib.

Today is my friends birthday so I made her a tea towel from toile de jouy fabric and knitted her a cotton dishcloth, I bundled them up with a wooden scrubbing brush


I managed to visit a few sewing shops while away on holiday, this is one of my purchases...a pack of Moda solids. Thinking I may make a baby quilt for my Etsy shop

Devon Grandchildren

As I said, I would be soon posting photo's of the grandchildren. We had a lovely time hanging out with them. In the park, in the garden, on the beach...... there is a great play park in Kingsbridge, which is a lovely little town, near to where they live, at the end of the Kingsbridge Estuary. The park has recently been revamped, great wooden climbing equipment and a safely enclosed area with swings etc and sand pit with water tap ;)

I know what all you grandma's are thinking....get that hair tied up!

 Keeping an eye out for some twin boys who weren't being particularly friendly!

 Too busy to get out of their pj's

 Loving the pebbles

Summer Flowers

I love to just snap flowers as I see them, I'm not a great gardener so I really appeciate flowers that others have grown or those I see growing wild.
