Our family's millennium baby Jodie was 10 years old this week - can you believe its 10 years since all that fuss! I made her this pink bird to hang in a window and to match (well, vaguely!) the bird decorated birthday card. I found the free pattern here at Spool. I had already bought a fat quarter of this cute Japanese fabric to make a little gift for a new baby a few weeks ago and there was enough left over to make a bird or two. Its such a cute design and not too babyish for a 10 years old either. I found the pattern for the bib here at Juliette's Chickpea Sewing Studio. I find so much inspiration and ideas in blog-land - and its all there for the finding!
Apparently we're in for a spell of hot weather over the weekend and although its very welcome to most people it does make my latest garden project very difficult. I'm doing a bit of archeology - uncovering an old cinder path which has long been overgown with rough grass, nettles and brambles. I may have to leave further excavations until next week when cooler conditions are expected.
However, the good news this week is that the May is out - the Hawthorn hedge in other words. So you may cast all your clouts to keep cool as the temperature rises!
Isn't it beautiful!
