Yesterday we had a super day with my sister Lou and her hubby Andy. Lou and I went to the Farnborough make it show, which if I am honest was a disappointment. We were home within an hour and a half, bearing in mind travelling is about 20 minutes each way. This meant we had an early lunch and headed off to Windsor. First ever trip there and it was lovely. We had blue sky and sunshine and the Queen was in residence although we didn't see her.
We walked up the long walk to the castle and then over the river Thames to look at Eton which was beautiful too. We had a costa coffee in the courtyard as we had the dog with us and then Lou and I went in search of the C&H store to drool over the wool and material. The dark blue material was an off cut I purchased to go with the other material.
We had a really great time looking around Windsor, really enjoyed it. We saw prince Phillip's deer and also there were some gorgeous parakeets in the trees.
Lou made us a delicious curry for our tea - thanks Lou x x
Today after our walk it started to rain so I used the opportunity to make some cushions, the top one is my first ever effort at piping. They aren't zipped they are envelope cushions so you use a bit more material.
The blue cushion colour is a really good match for a tree we have above our fire place so had to have it.

A big day for my Mum tomorrow, she has decided to retire.
She will be the big 70 in August and although she has only been working mainly part time I think she would really like to have the freedom of not going to work.
My lovely mum spends her life on her push bike and gets so frustrated when it's raining and she can't get out I am hoping with not having to work she will be able to ride when she wants and also get some new hobbies and friends. She cycles miles and pretty blooming amazing for her age !
Here's to the next chapter Mum x x x

The fit for real people book and some gardening vouchers came from my lovely Mum. It's a great book and will be so useful.
I also had a beautiful scarf from MIL with drawer liners and body scrub and another lovely scarf from Jenny.
I had a lot of cards, some beautiful hand crafted ones thanks guys x.
Although I had to work today it was a nice day
