Have you met my daughter?

























Here she is! She is a theatre sister at a big city hospital and I'm sure she modelled for this fabric designer. In fact I think I have actually met these two ladies with her.....they look just like Lizzie and Lou-lou!!

 
I have been madly spring cleaning and found this piece of fabric I had bought ages ago to make something(not sure what!!) for my daughter. As you can see it's been folded up neatly in the cupboard since.  I have also spent the last 3 days working in the garden so I thought I would set a cute afternoon tea table in the pergola. I love how the sun shining through the lattice has made patterns on the fabric. 


















































I'm a bit worried about the surgeon - he looks slightly dis-interested. Hope I don't ever come across him!

What a great post! I giggled all the way through! I love the red and white checks and the polka dots (big polka dot lover) and the illustrations are a hoot! Then you added the great red and white tea things. Too much fun! Happy Tea Day!
