Busy weekend with the Grandparents to stay!

Well we have had another lovely weekend spending time with family.  This weekend we have had Grandma and Grandad Newton (my husband's parents) to stay.  Our little boy has just been hyper with excitement all weekend and I have really enjoyed spending time with Grandma Newton, as she is a dab hand in the garden and is a keen knitter!  So we have filled our days with gardening, garden centres, crafty shops, carbooting and then putting our feet up in the evening with our latest crochet and knitting projects...BLISS!

Here are a few pics from our busy weekend...

Carbooting in Hutton le Hole

My mum helping out!

Quite a posh carboot!

My gorgeous alliums I bought from Hovingham Village Market


Could not resist buying this beautifully made sock animal, again from Hovingham Village Market

We have named him 'Harry the Hippo'!

My salad leaves just peeking through

Tarrogan, Basil and Coriander potted up

Had a real tidy up of my other pots

Hung some new bunting in the porch

Had a go at making croceht heart bunting...not the best picture though!

Grandma Newton and I are busy making children's finger puppets to be sold at our Summer Village Fete...to raise much needed money for our Village Hall!

Another 8 frops ready to be stitched up!


Bought this on our weekend travels to put on my little boy's rucksack.  I just love Belle and Boo illustrations!
 .....I also have to show you the gorgeous present I recieved from Linda at the Scented Garden. Thank you so much Linda...So special...it will be treasured!



Til next time xx
