Blooming Lovely Free Pattern

With this wonderful spell of warm sunny weather we’ve been enjoying lately, everything in the garden is blooming – lovely!  So I thought you might enjoy the applique design I’ve put together to take to Nostalgic Mix tomorrow.  It’s really easy – but very effective – and you can download the free pattern from Bustle & Sew.  Hope you like it!!
Meanwhile, I’ve been getting ready for Nostalgic Mix at Totnes tomorrow – the little handmade family are very excited……
“What’s happening?  Why are we having our photos taken?  Wonder if the elephants know?…..”
“Haven’t a clue … let’s ask the hounds … perhaps they can sniff it out….”
“Noses to the ground chaps … no we don’t know what’s happening either – perhaps the bunnies will know”
“Ooooh, isn’t it loverly, we’re off on an outing .. not sure where though … let’s ask the mice ….”
“Don’t know where we’re going … just hope it’ll be fun when we get there … let’s ask the chickens ..”
“We know, we know, we know … we’re off to the Nostalgic Mix to find our new families.  Look at our pretty labels … we hope to see you there!!”
And finally … STOP PRESS ……
The next Rosie & Bear pattern will be in the April Magazine … working up to the wire here, but confident now it will be finished – this one is May Blossoms  – it’ll be in my Etsy Shop too next weekend.

    'May Blossoms' is just gorgeous! My grandmother loved May *and* the blooms from the Mayflower trees, although here in Australia the Mayflowers bloomed in November! LOL!
