A Wonderful day and playing with my sewing machine :)

Hi Everyone

I really hope you've all enjoyed the wonderful sunshine we've had over the bank holiday, shame about the rain today :(

I was a very lucky gal, and was given a last minute ticket to go to the Chelsea flower show by my lovely friend and her sister on Saturday :) and all I can say is.... WOW!!! What an AMAZING event!!

We were totally blessed with the sunshine, it really was a glorious day, and a real feast for the eyes.  So much colour and beauty everywhere you looked.
The extra bonus ofcourse was that we went on the last day, which ment by the end of the day they started to sell off all the plants.

I really don't know what was more amazing and entertaining, seeing the spectacular displays, or seeing them being dismantled and everyone scrabbling to buy a plant. 
It was so funny seeing what some people were walking away with, giant plants 6 foot plus tall with stems and flowers everywhere!
We even spotted someone walking away with a  tree! all heading for the bus and underground home, goodness knows if they ever made it back in one piece, lol!
I managed to buy some beautiful rambling roses (for my garden arch) and some heavenly scented lavender, oooh how I love that scent :) So all in all and wonderful day!

I've also been busy sorting out my craft room, and trying to ruthless, Gosh, that's hard!  I've done several layouts, so watch out for them in the next few posts, but in the mean time.... I though I would share with you a recent card I made for Mothers Day when playing with my sewing machine. Lots of inking and distressing and a bit of twinkle too!
Don't you just love stitching on paper?  I do :)

Happy Crafting and more soon!

LOL got a mental image of someone walking with this plant onto bus and laughed out loud :-) did you take many pics of the lovely flowers? If you did you'll have to get them scrapped. Look forward to your new posts with what youve been making xx
