are sunny, summer days,

Bella and I will be away for a little while

so we would like to leave

a few meadow moments with you ….

We call this ….

Buttercup Meadow

as you look at the scene hear in your mind

the sound of the cuckoo for that is the sound we could hear

in our beautiful, beautiful Buttercup meadow

Bella listening to the cuckoo!

The meadow a couple of months ago …..

Beautiful! Bountiful! Buttercupful!

Beautiful! Bountiful! Buttercpful! Bellaful!

Bye for now xxx


Still thinking of Jelly Roll fun

“here is one I made earlier!” – last winter in fact ….

I loved it … LOVED to wear it,

it took just part of a Jelly Roll and some of a Layer cake

so I have decided

that during the summer this is going to be my main focus ….

another patchwork jacket ready for the winter!

I would only make a few minor changes next time ….

certainly give myself POCKETS!

I really miss them and perhaps will add some to this one ….

it is soooooooooo comfy and cozy!


I have this gorgeous

Moda Luna Notte jelly roll

Luna Notte Jelly Roll  by Three Sisters

my original is fleece backed, but I may make this one a real quilted jacket :0)

and perhaps …

there might even be

a few Jelly strips left over for ….

Bella :0)

What do you think?

I had better get on with it then!



One of my favourite sights at this time of the year …..

Rape seed fields!

I love the colour,

the sight and the scent….

on this walk you actually walk between two fields and it is stunning,

it is a walk that leads to the bluebell woods.


Back home I wanted to have my own rape seed field!

so here it is …..

in Decopatch!

whatever you are doing ….. enjoy the sun :0)

Val & Bella xx

thank you! ….


Have you met Teje and Nero?

Well, a short time ago Teje arrived at 100 blogs and had a give away …..

Nero pointed out my name and so I have a prize ….

Today it arrived!

Can you see who opened it????

The minute the postman gets anything into the letter box

Bella grabs it, shakes it, and shakes it again!

That is not a piece of bread in the bottom right hand corner ….. it is from a

parcel that was delivered at the same time!

BUT what a lovely, interesting parcel ….

for Bella and me!

What is inside the lovely green bag?

herbs ….. a delightful scent, rosemary and marjoram …. mmmmmm :0)

a treat for Bella and a personal card …..

Thank You Teje and Nero ….
