You were all right, her sister wanted a set too. Here is another Tilly and the Buttons Fifi set. I am thinking I would love a set myself now even though they do have to be bigger than size 8, substantially bigger, Ahem!
This fabric was gifted to me in a stash clear out from Christina at A Colourful life. I didn't quite have enough for the cups because the pattern is cut on the bias so I went for a contrast piece from my patchwork box and it looks so pretty. If you only had a bit of liberty fabric left over, it would be ideal to use for the cups if you could find a coordinating fabric for the rest.
I must be in the mood for pink. The garden has gone all pink and frothy over the last few weeks even though it has changed again since I wrote this post on Monday. It is still full to bursting which means thankfully weeding is off the job list for the next few months. The garden is designed to need little maintenance by being full to the brim suppressing the weeds.
I tied my ceanothus to the wall in Winter and it is thriving alongside the pale pink aquilegia. I always try to visit a garden centre at different times of the year and choose a plant right in flower. That way there is always something bursting throughout most of the year, the garden is full now but I will probably need to get some of that blue knapweed out in late summer.
The forgetmenots are going over as the peonies make their blousy entrance. They have lasted well this week without being beaten down by wind or rain.
