A weekend in Instagram

I had a lovely 4 day weekend over the bank holiday and it had almost started to look like summer here in England. Obviously it's back to grey and raining again today, we can't enjoy ourselves for too long! Here are some of my most recent instagram pictures to show you what I've been up to.

First of all, when I saw this in my local shop I couldn't resist buying it. My plan was to save it but the coke was calling me so I ended up drinking it about 2 hours later. Typical!

This is our shower, finally in place and fully functional. I can't tell you how good it is to have a shower when you have only had the option of a bath for over six months. Oh the efficiency! Also, if you are planning on getting a new shower then I absolutely recommend a rainfall shower head, they're wonderful.

I'm not the biggest fan of having my hair cut, I always get frustrated when I go in with a clear picture of what I want and come out with something completey different. I used to have white blonde hair and I absolutely loved it. Unfortunately my hair all snapped off and since then I have tried loads of different colours but am never satisfied. I had some blonde highlights done and decided to have a fringe cut. Even though it's not white, I'm really pleased with how it looks, it's a miracle!
My sister is considering opening her very own Etsy shop selling patchwork quilts. She has a real talent for it and I think she would do well. By way of encouragement I have given her a bunch of fat quarters from my vintage sheet collection to get started with. Don't they look great together? Now she has no excuse!

My fabric parcel from M is for Make arrived, I was really eager to get started so it didn't take me long to get cutting...

I have decided on half square triangles but then there are so many different arrangements to choose from that I can't decide. I think I have narrowed it down the one above, or the one below...

...which do you like best?? I had a bit of an accident and managed to cut a rather large amount of white fabric on the small side so my project is on hold until I buy some more. That's what happens when it get's to midnight and you are still crafting. My brain just switches off!

And finally, my lovely friend May came up from Reading so we decided on a late night road trip to Surprise View in Derbyshire. It was lovely catching up with her, I miss her a lot when she is down South.
