Introducing Mrs Black Hair and Rose

I finally cracked and bought two guinea pigs to fill the hutch and run that were very kindly given to us by our next door neighbours. They are only 10 weeks old and very sweet although they keep weeing on me which I'm not very happy about!

A big Happy Birthday to my little Sam who is 3 today!!

We went out to our local Italian restaurtant tonight for dinner and we cheated with a chocolate brownie for a cake (we peaked with the fire engine cake last week and didn't have the energy to make another one!). He seemed quite happy though.

Izzy was very pleased when the waiter made her a rose from a napkin

I received my gorgeous fabric swap parcel in the post today. The swap was organised by Bluebell and Rosie and I was matched with Georgie from All Things Crafty who not only sent me two beautiful fat quarters of fabric

A cute 'puddings' fabric which is very pretty. I love it.

and a lovely pink fabric with cute little swirls

but also included a gorgeous little fabric heart which is now hanging in my kitchen

and the sweetest little lavender bag. Gorgeous. Thank you!

I sent Georgie a little parcel too...

A fat quarter of this lovely fabric which is one of my favourites

Another pretty little floral polka dot fabric

Some tractor fabric which I thought Georgies little boy might like. There were 4 different tractor squares

and a little purse for her daughter

I went to a WI craft market last week and came across these gorgeous little boxes that had been hand embroidered with flowers. So pretty I just couldn't resist at just £2.

I couldn't decide which one I liked the best so I bought one for Izzy too which had a lovely little surprise inside.

The cutest little teddy bear!
