sewing in the sunshine

Warning this post contains the obligatory garden shots as I am english and there for obsest with the weather.

The weather is glorious here in the UK at the moment, im sure some of your have been lapping it up like I have. So today I decided to venture outside with my machine to do a bit of sewing al fresco. Turns out it is a pretty perfect way to spend the afternoon. I found myself a little bit of shade, being of the English rose variety I do catch the sun easily, and armed with my extension lead and folding table I set up camp. Hopefully my machine wasnt too noisy as to disturb my neighbors and I went right to the bottom of the garden so they couldn't hear my beautiful singing voice as I sang along to my Ipod.

I couldn't really think of a better place to work really, this garden is one of the places I am really going to miss when we eventually move out of London. Who couldn't be inspired being surrounded by all these beautiful flowers.

The temperature is supposed to drop off in the next few days so I might not get to do this again this week but hopefully this wont be our only glimpse of summer this year, last year we had about a week in September, and then I will be ready with my foldy table and machine in hand.

So this last week I have finally got round to re opening my own online shop. Go and take a look, you will see many new versions of the old favourites, like the vintage button coin purse. I will also be putting up some exclusive items over the next few weeks too.

Laurafallulah started with all items being one off pieces and now it has grown that is impossible but with my own shop I am going to re introduce that one of a kind design back into my work. So keep an eye out if you are like me and like the thought of having something that no one else has.

April Flowers

This time of year is always very busy for me due to many many family birthdays. That means it is always filled with my favourite things, present giving, cake, food in general and just generally catching up with people I dont get to see as often as I would like.

Unfortunately it does not mean that I can catch up with my best friend as she lives on the other side of the world in Canada. Bless her sweet heart though when I came home from work one day to find these most amazingly beautiful and not to mention HUGE bouquet of flowers from her.

Abby you rule! I wish you could all smell them through your computer monitors as they filled the room with the scent of spring. With all this temperamental weather we have been having it certainly was nice to have a reminder that it is actually nearly summer here in the UK.

Anyway of course I was spoilt with lots of presents not to mention more flowers from another great friend who I did get to spend the afternoon with chatting away the hours. So thanks to everyone for a fab birthday.

Ps it isnt even over yet, I am going out with my oldest friend on Friday night to celebrate old school in a place I havent been to since I was 21.
