Are you reading, Mr. P?!

As some of you may be aware, Valentine's Day is fast approaching and I'm sure a lot of men would be glad of a subtle hint or two! So, here it is, just for you dear husband if you are reading. A big, floral, pretty, colourful hint!


Speaking of floral, these pretty flowers jumped into my trolley in Sainsburys! I only noticed my matching vase and mug when I lost my cup of tea (they often get lost when I get distracted and I end up with half drunk cups of tea everywhere) and found it here. A little collection of pink and polka dot has cheered me up on another cold and snowy day.


I came across a bag full of embroidery goodies in a CS last week. There are two linen tablecloths, both unfinished but with a tin full of matching embroidery threads. Just perfect for someone who has never embroidered but is keen to have a go.



I think I'll attempt to finish them and maybe use them to make some cushions as I don't have a table to cover.
