Seasonal Bunting.......

 As I get older I seem to notice the passing of the seasons in ever increasing detail.......
 The flowers, the fruits, the blossoms, the leaves, the quality of the light......the length of the days.....and I want to celebrate every second of every season.....I have always loved The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady...and I have a couple of the books lying around.....but what use is a book on the shelf when you can use it to make wonderful bunting that can be seen EVERY day.....
 So I have started with a SPRING bunting...........
 I love it....and have hung it in my kitchen, along with the primroses and mini dafs, and a lovely bundle of rhubarb a dear friend brought from her allotment for me........spring has sprung in my kitchen
Of course I will have four lots of this bunting throughout the year.......I need to find a shelf where I can display seasonal bits and produce,,,,and I have lots of pictures left over to make some more bunting so keep tuned x


  1. What a lovely idea! I adore bunting, though I mostly sew it. Of course I could scan and print spring images onto calico! Now that's an idea. Thanks for that. Off now to try to find a copy of your book in our local CS .

    1. my daughter used the rest of the pages to make the traditional triangle bunting...sewing bias biding across the top ...it's amazing.....you will be able to make loads from one book x the printing onto calico sounds a really interesting idea...some of the poems from the book would look good on it! thank you for popping by to visit sidmouth poppy x x x

  2. I have a couple of copies of that book too, guess what I'm going to do.........
