Catch Up

Yet again its been a while since Ive posted, so while cleaning up my photos today (in this miserable weather were having) here's what Ive been up to...

Remember our caravan? We've been busy trying to get it ready for our first family trip this summer. The old cushion covers were a little dated....


So I thought I'd have a go at recovering them....


I'm really happy how they turned out. I used this free pattern I found. Its very easy to follow. I just omitted the piping. Otherwise good to go!

A while ago, a trusty fellow blogger recommended this great place. On this particular voyage I managed to pick up some great summer shoes....


Whilst hubby purchased this rather interesting computer chair.


If you haven't had the chance to get to the Mill Market,I suggest you do. But be warned...leave yourself at least a day to get through all the bargains!

In other crafty news, I also had a go at some cushion covers for the bed...


I found a similar one to the circled felt one in Target and thought it couldn't be too hard to make. I was right!

In horsey news, the girls are really enjoying China. Here's a snippet of each of them having a little canter..





Meanwhile, I'm enjoying getting my confidence back on a friends horse, also called China, and now affectionately known as Big China..


She's a beautiful big (17hh+) Clyde cross and I'm really loving my time back in the saddle. Its my form of meditation.


Have a happy weekend
