Afternoon Tea

I love a good excuse to get in the kitchen and bake up a storm, so I invited a few friends and family around yesterday for afternoon tea; the perfect opportunity to see everyone before I head overseas (tomorrow!).

I went for the classics:

Lemon tart


There was almost nothing left by the end of the afternoon, and plenty of tea and champers were drunk along the way.

I'm not sure if I'll get the chance to blog while I'm away, so if I don't, see you in 5 weeks!

Hometown by Sweetwater

The latest arrival at Bella's Patchwork is Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda. It's a cute range with some great "boy prints".

Due to staggered shipping I've got Charm Packs and a cute spot print in stock at the moment, with Jelly Rolls and a few other prints due to arrive by the end of the month.

My overseas trip has almost arrived; I leave next Tuesday! I've left a very reliable family member in charge of packing and shipping orders, and I'll still be checking and answering emails while I'm gone. I can't wait to escape this gloomy weather for a little bit of summer sun.

First Signs of Spring

It might only be the start of the last month of winter, but those little signs of spring are starting to appear around the garden...

My blueberry shrub

Cherry blossom buds



I'm quite pleased to see these little signs before I go away, as I love the start of Spring.
