It feels like spring is a long way off today, but in my sewing room I have colourful flowers everywhere. I've been drinking hot chocolate, sat at my computer adding lots of lovely handmade flower brooches to my ' found & sewn' folksy shop.

I have quite a collection of vintage wild flower books. I love learning the names of wild flowers like Venus's looking glass, Penny royal, Wild candytuft and Cloudberry.  I have already signed up to the Wildflowers count this year where you can take part in the UK's only annual national wild plant survey.

  9. I absolutely love those flower names, 'cloudberry' and 'wild candytuft' - they sound dreamy!

    I just bought one of your lovely cards for my mum on Mother's Day. She absolutely loves the bunting you sent me, so much so that it is now hanging in our dining room for all to see!
