Not such a lazy Sunday ...

Hi everyone and welcome to some new followers!

Today there has been a mixture of activities going on.  Obviously the main thing that happens every Sunday is getting the school uniform ready for next week.  So you have to imagine I am like little Miss Tiggywinkle herself working through piles of laundry.  The weather down in Devon today is beautiful so I have the pleasure of watching my washing blowing in the breeze out of the kitchen window, whilst ironing another load dried yesterday.

Our garden is still being productive for us, not as productive as last year, unfortunately we have been so busy with work this year that I'm afraid my beautiful garden has been a little neglected.  Big plans for next year though (huge time management organisation going on).

Some yummy beans to go with our lovely Roast Chicken dinner mmm....

I'm having a little play with an idea of some Christmas cards today.  Hubby and I run an embroidery and printing business and the machines were all turned off today.  I thought I would have a play as I have had some ideas for a new line of cards.  They still need a little bit of tweaking but so far I'm really happy with the out come.

I have used the machines to embroider a gorgeous Christmas ornament design.  I didn't want to embroider straight onto paper/card as I thought this may be too harsh for the design as well as the machines so I had some mulberry paper in my stash and I started the experiment.  Part of the design had to be deleted as there were too many stitches and it was tearing the paper.  I feel adding the sentiment in the centre really works. 
 What do you think?

Like I say they need a little more work and I'm hoping to come up with a series/pack either with different designs or the same design in different colours.  Still playing around with it.

For now because the skies are clear I think it is a little chilly today so I have made a lovely treat for myself and the little one to snuggle up with.

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and beautiful clear skies like us down in Devon.

See you tomorrow.

Love Em x
