My new dog Moss celebrated his first birthday on Monday followed by my 40 something birthday on Tuesday! We didn't do much because we are off to Chelsea Flower Show on Friday 28 May, so we can make up for it then! We haven't been for two years so I am really looking forward to it. Moss had a long walk on Monday and I received lots of cards and lovely presents from friends and family on Tuesday (well from the weekend before really!). My sister bought me a Cath Kidson Sew book and some pinking scissors, which will come in handy for my crafts and I've always wanted the scissors since I was a kid when I used to use my nans pair. The book has lots of easy to follow projects and really pretty pictures.
I'm buying a small sewing machine from my birthday money in John Lewis this weekend. I've wanted one for ages and so thought I'd just go and get one as there are so many things I could make. They are really sweet and I can use it this weekend as the weather is supposed to be dull. I've just started to knit a Rowan bag from a kit I bought on eBay last week, so I could line it with some material I have in the cupboard!
I'll post some pictures of Chelsea over the weekend & I'll probably add a giveaway. Love Amanda x
