Bank Holiday is over and we are back to work. I didn't realise that people in Scotland don't get that bank holiday. That is a shame but I think they get other holidays.
I have been mentioning working on Wedding Invitations ( I do have a lot to do). I don't think I have shared the sample I made for the second lot of invitations I am making. It is a lovely simple design and it does incorporate all the colours of the wedding.
It takes just one A5 double sided pearlised sheet with matting and layering.
The thistle is a tattered lace die. I snipped off the bottom of the design and paper pieced the top of the thistle. I made 35 of these at the weekend.
Yesterday we went to Exbury Gardens in the New Forest in Hampshire. I am going to share just a few of my photos (I took loads).
The flowers were stunning and the colours were amazing.
Everywhere you went there was something to see.
Some of the views were beautiful and so full of colour. We have been to this garden a few times but I don't think I have ever seen the colours like this.
The bluebells were out too.
The carpets of bluebells were just so pretty. I can really recommend the garden as a day out if you are down this way especially at this time of year.
The couple I am making these invitations for are very pleased with the design. I am making the place setting cards as well.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
