So, a change of plan..... I've decided to post a show-and-tell about the garden stuff first, before it feels too autumny to write about that kind of thing!
Knowing that we'd be staying at home for the summer this year (and that we'd be having several sets of visitors), we decided to buy some new garden furniture so that we'd be able to enjoy the sunshine right here.
We found a set that we liked in IKEA (of course). But it needed brightening up, I thought (actually, I was just in need of a new sewing project at that time). So I made some patchwork cushions for the seats, and some coasters for the table. Here they are(along with a couple of flower photos).....
When I'd finished making the cushions and coasters, I planned to make a couple of lengths of bunting to match. But little Bo arrived before I got the chance. It's on my 'to-do' list for next spring.....
