**A croppy adventure**

I'm just bursting at the seams with things to tell you now! This weekend I am going away with the girls - V.J and Carrie.... we have wanted to go on a crop weekend for a long time now but none of us can seem to justify the £300+ that they cost......maybe in the future when the guilt of little ones and home improvements has vanished. ANYWAY! Carrie came up with the brilliant idea of creating our own and so the crop weekend was born! We are going to use my MIL and FIL's caravan in Norfolk and we are also going on a mini road trip to visit capture the magic while we are there!

How terribly exciting!!!

 

I randomly added those pics as I just found them and they made me smile - she is such a cheeky little miss!

......so yesterday I said I would share some of my sewing projects, I was thinking about colours and schemes for Emily's bedroom and decided to start making a few bits ready for when I decorate it. I'm  not sure where the butterflies inspiration came from but that's the theme!



The cushion cover is made from felt - along with the many hand-sewn butterflies!!! I have more to share but blogger appears to be having some trouble uploading the rest of the pictures so I will try again tomorrow.

What a lovely pillow Rachel! I really like that color. Sounds like you will have a fun croppy weekend; great idea to create your own weekend and include a little road trip, too.

Such a pretty colour for a very pretty little girl! I think that a butterfly theme will be just perfect.

She is adorable! Your cushion is gorgeous - TSO's room has been that shade of pink for many years now and she still loves it - so I think you've got a keeper there :)
