On the same day as the other pic was taken, we collected wild flowers for Nanny from the park.
These are pictures taken from the 3 Counties Show which was fab! There was a tent devoted to forgotten skills- weavers, spinners, rope tying people, whittlers of wood and others I can't recall now.
Pictures of a Prague skyline taken from the palace. No photo can do the view justice though.
Inside view! Just stunning

This was my creative efforts. I'd been on pinterest and thought a bonnet may be achievable so set to work the night before sketching a basic idea and cutting out the concentric circles with the big shot and then old fashioned drawing around a plate for the bigger ones. I was interrupted by my teething baby which meant that I only came to do all of the sewing on the morning of the parade. I began around 10:15 and finished just after 11:30. My machine is a bit sticky on the zig zag stitch so I gave up on the top band (which is now already fraying so I will have to go over it. I had hoped to have brooches and corsage embellishments but just ran out of time. I will complete it and perhaps keep hold of it for an Easter parade in the future. I really am pleased with it and am happy I managed to make something as it has been ages!
Here's a side on view. Other than the pink lace (which I bought in France on a market 2 years ago) all of the fabric was from charity shops or the car boot. My sister bought me the Cath Kidston binding tape which really finished it off for me. Lastly, here's a pic of me in it. I did get a lot of amused looks throughout the day but I figure, it's just a bit of fun and I want the kids to get into the frivolity and celebratory spirit so why not?
