Lovely days.....


 This dry warm weather is just lovely at the moment. I took one of my favourite walks yesterday to Towan Beach and followed the headland round to Porthbeor, taking in the views along the way.

The hedgerows are brimming with frothy cow parsley, red campions, bluebells, buttercups and stitchwort. I've been picking jugfuls of cow parsley to set outside the shop; it matches the delicate green and white upholstery on this chair perfectly!

 I have quite a selection of dyed French linen smocks for sale, and Patsy has been making beautiful pieces too, like this blouse made from 1950's pink seersucker using a vintage pattern. She has put delicate white piping around the Peter Pan collar and down the button front.

 An old baby dress that I've dyed dusky pink, and one of Wendy's little baby bonnets with a hand-stitched boat on the side.......
