Time to Relax

Where have the last few weeks gone? Back to school and busy , busy busy and then the I'nspectors 'arrived. Here in the UK we have 5 days notice that they are arriving. As teachers we do a pretty good job all the time, but during inspection its nice to just tweak things up a bit. I was all set a couple of weeks ago as I was running a Farmhouse Breakfast Week, making sure everyone had breakfast before starting school. I am also running a Fair-trade Tuckshop. I made some flapjacks using fairtrade ingredients which went a bomb. I will post the recipe later.
Happy week.

Cutting and Folding

Catching up on my blogs I came across
I was inspired and set ablout cutting and folding my old calendar. However I decided to make individual flowers with buttton centres. I put each flower onto a stick. I then decided to have a go the same idea using fabric. No photographs of this as yet as I m going to make several versions and tie them together to make a bunch - looking quite good so far.
Hope you like the flowers, if so have a look at Sharedthreads as she is an expert.
Happy week
