Bloomin' lovely!

May is a bloomin' lovely month and brings a fresh start






















The latest phase of renovations is finished and ended with the hugest of spring cleans so the cottage is looking clean and tidy. The garden is looking pretty too - green and fresh with lots of new bulbs and flowers popping up. We are about to burst with "London Pride"

This week we enjoyed the company of family staying with us, a meal out, lovely walks on the coast path into St. Ives and a few treats ... a most welcome break after all the hard work of recent weeks

Haiku - week 13

We have two more BIG jobs to do in the cottage but, apart from moving furniture, it doesn't involve me quite so much as the recent stuff so I'm hoping things will settle down a bit

I'm looking forward to catching up with my blog buddies, alphabet inchies, textile work, quilt for FOQ and blogging a bit more during the bloomin' lovely month of May!

My next post will be a longer one with many lovely blog buddies to thank and a bit more of what I've been up to!

Have a fabby weekend
Carolyn ♥
