I am here...

But I have been sooo busy. Crafty and busy. We have had rain here almost everyday for 2 weeks now so I thought I would give you a shot of the only plant that looks good. I tried my hands at some Cath Kidston clothes pegs. What do you think?

I think they're sweet. And they will make hanging the washing out so much more enjoyable. If we ever get to hang it out again with all the rains we've had.

I finally lined the picnic basket. It had to be done all by hand. I now know I am terrible at gathering. If you see any tutorials on these let me know. Please, please do not look too closely at the sewing.

We are leaving to get away for a few days and I want to take this with us so we can use it for picnics and at the water. We will be coming home for a few days and then returning. I will leave it with my mum and dad that go off on drives, not knowing where they are going or how long they will be but they always take a packed lunch so it is theirs for the rest of the week.

All ready. Just fill with wine and food.

I have been tagged by Julia. I am to post 5 interesting things about myself that you probably didn't know. My question is do you really want to know? I will think about this while I am away. I do have so much more to tell you but I haven't the time right now as I must pack. My DN3 is finally feeling better. A sore throat for almost 2 weeks. A virus the doctor said. My goodness.

Oh, and I went away last weekend to Buffalo shopping. You are allowed $400.00 worth of stuff for 48 hours to cross back over without penalty. Who thinks I was a good girl and stuck to my limit? Did I mention there is a Macy's and Lord + Taylor there?

LImits, limits...
Have a good time on your little getaway. The lining looks fab!
I put laundry out today, the only day calling for no rain but I am prepared to dash out...

Great clothespins! Really great and I want some.

We must be in the same weather pattern. That's exactly what it's been like here.

Stay busy...it means you'll have lots to share with us! (I still haven't given that award away. I'm enjoying it too much. :D)

I think your lining looks fantastic. Did you sew it into the basket or glue it? I would love to find a tutorial for this also! Cherrie

Hi Lisa..your basket looks so lovely and the pegs too!
I always manage to break the thread about three quarters of the way round when I gather..its a right bother! We've had the rain aswell and thought it would never end but have been lucky enough to have a week of sunshine lately..maybe its on its way over to you soon! x
