The Tortoise and the Hare
I know, i know - Binks is not realllllllly a Hare but he would like to be...... who wouldn't want longer legs, be able to run faster, jump higher, have enormous ears!!!
O.k - maybe not the ears!!!
But he was pleased (and slightly puzzled) to meet Trevor the tortoise x
Hi there Trevor - you are cute.
The trouble with Trevor is that he knows he is cute - with a body made from the softest felt, a shell made from Linen with Vintage decoration and Vintage buttons for eyes, he should have a badge or an award or something!
He seems happy here at Artichoke cottage but is looking for adventure (and a home with slightly saner folk)
So i will be sending him off to Brighton for this weekends open house - he is of course hoping to be introduced to that foxy little fawn!
If you are Brighton way this weekend please pop in and give Trevor a pat on the head or a tickle under his chin xx
As you can tell i am coping with the move by sewing, sewing, sewing - i am having a GREAT time.
And just take a peek at my new (but old) portable Tea for Two xxx
I am deeply in love with it and with Stephen who brought it for me as a happy house selling gift.
The case is a beautiful olive green with tiny white spots, and inside - just look at the inside!!!
Two china cups and saucers with green spots, the original tin for cakes, and a glass pot for the sugar and the milk.
I am in the process of making some sweet napkins for it and we will no doubt give it a trial run this weekend - just imagine it on the back seat of my Ford Anglia!!!!
See..... not thinking about the move at all.
Back soon with more handmade goodies and news of lovely new stock that is about to be uploaded on to my website.
Enjoy the sunshine
