O.K. I’m a little late – all of one month and two days to be exact. It is about time I added something to this blog. I have done so much since I last updated. The skirt has been worn a lot, the scarf has been frogged. The garden has started to really take shape and I have seen so many more beautiful birds in the garden. I have also started to sew a little more and have a few projects in hand I am going to post about in the coming weeks.
So to get a little seasonal I started by sewing some lovely lavender hearts. I used an offcut of a heart tatoo print which I love. I bought a few pieces of ribbon of different shades in red and purple to trim. The lavender has been sitting on my shelf since last August. I was given a large bunch when we stayed in a beautiful house in the South West of France. The lavender smell is incredibly strong and a little goes a long way.
Here is a picture of the hearts with a few single ones. The first one has been gifted to my sister as part of her birthday present.
I have also knitted a few hearts. I used a free Rav pattern called folk hearts as well as a pattern for small hearts. Again I have put in a little lavender to help keep the drawers moth free!

Hello there Rubyslippers! Love your new-look blog. Those hearts are lovely, both the sewn ones and the knitted! I’m off to have a look at the pattern. Thanks for the kind comment on my Ripple Blanket. I am due to become a grandma in May to a dear little granddaughter and the blanket is for her. I don’t feel old enough to become a Grandma aaahhhhh!!! Ros
Thank you snoopydog, I’m really pleased with the new look too! Thanks for the lovely comment about the flowers.
