Jubilee Day

So today at Charlotte's school they are celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. They have had to go dressed up for the occasion.  Charlotte isn't really into dressing up so she opted for dressing in red, white and blue.  We bought her a lovely t-shirt with the union jack on with the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye on. She looked sweet. I asked her to stand straight like a soldier and this is what I got!!

I took one with my Polaroid and then asked her to hold it, again it took several goes as she seemed to have had silly cereal for breakfast!!!!

So on the crafting front, not much has been happening on the scrapbooking front.  I've been wanting to crochet something for a while and to put to good use all the wool I have bought. So whilst blog hopping I saw that Sheena was crocheting a bloom cushion, I wasn't sure whether I could do it, but thought I would have a go.  I pulled the pattern from Lucy at Attic24's blog (she's amazing), it was a challenge, but once I got the hang of it I loved it.  I may make another one in my bedroom colours. 

This weather has been glorious and we have been making the most of it, we have been eating our evening meal outside which has been great. Charlotte has been enjoying the weather too, she wanted her swimming goggles on in the paddling pool, I did tried to persuade her that she really didn't need them for an inch of water!

We have been visiting some National Trust properties in the area, Snowshill Manor, Hidcote Gardens (which is beautiful) and Charlecote Park.  I'll share some photos really soon, once I've edited them.

Thanks for stopping by.
