The Windy City!!

As Doris Day says "The Windy City is mighty pretty" well it has been a lovely day with lots of pretty sunshine but also mighty windy!!! Luckily I took a photo of this

before the wind got it and lifted it from the shelf and smashed into bits!! Well it toppled off!! I am now making another one! They are pieces of slate which I buy from the Brilliant Barry who cuts, sands and puts the holes in for me! then I can paint and decorate them, it makes a change from fabric and ribbons! Have to do an order for one in Duck egg blue and hand draw on it so I will show you that one when it is done.

Wey hey have some fab news Gab has gone up to Orange books!! she is flying through the books now! Well done Gabs! Fin has been picked to be in the Table Tennis A Team, so there is another commitment for him! He is so shattered by Friday and then it's footy!! Go for it Sporty lad!!!

Speaking of Fin have to go and test him on his spellings, test every Friday!!!
It's nearly the weekend!! Have a good evening everyone.


  1. Such a shame that sign got smashed, it's lovely! Great idea to paint the slate though, looking forward to seeing more of your designs! Congrats to Gabs on going up to orange books and Fin for getting picked for the table tennis team, he likes to be busy doesn't he! Have a great evening! :) x

  2. What a great idea, I would never have thought to paint slate. It looked lovely..

  3. I love the sign - what a shame the wind caught it and it got smashed!! Your designs are so fresh and pretty. Have a lovely weekend.
