Lisa Pocklington  Building my dream life 1 step at a time. Owner of Get Smitten Vintage Fabrics. ❀ crochet, thrifting, shoes & gratitude. Floral biz in the pipeline🌷

Travelling light so switched my overnight bag to this little beauty. She still knew I was going though and gave me the 'look' before marching through the cat flap in a huff! The fluffy socks are coming with. Off to meet the Mr on his return from his boys ski trip πŸ’•

I gifted the kaleidoscope quilt (and little Hygge bundle) to my bestie on Wednesday eve; we both welled up! Thought you might like to see it's progress - including the behind the scenes shots of Betty 'helping' me! 🐱😻
The fabric is by Amy Butler, the pattern is kaleidoscope from the One Block Wonders book & I embroidered a Shakespeare friendship quote along one edge in a variegated thread from House of Embroidery. I used my fancy pants new sewing machine to stitch the wording for the label and to quilt (stitch in the ditch) around the hexies. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•
So pleased with how this turned out, amazed I got it done in time & so grateful that it has gone to a good home for lots of lazy snuggles on the sofa.
And relax!

Feeling the chill today so am having a lazy afternoon in front of the fire with a cuppa & some crumpets in my fluffy socks! Oh, and Pinterest - got a photo shoot to plan for #lovetheplanningstage

Ah meri meri, you're killing me with your gorgeous Liberty print paper goods! Big love to D at @vintage.bean for always stocking such loveliness! 😍
Also - why do hands always look like a pack of sausages in photos?!

Super fresh chuckleberries from Mrs M's Hazel the hen yesterday. Yokes as golden as the summer sun! I just had one in a breakfast wrap & it was divine! πŸ”πŸŒžπŸ₯š

Sunday morning bliss. πŸ’•
Still in my pjs with a maple & pecan coffee, doing a bit of stitching along the border of my quilt & watching LA Confidential.
Also - can we just take a moment to salute my only neat mitred corner on this quilt!

Am I right, or am I right?
Happy Saturday night lovelies xx 🍷

This morning will mostly be spent pattern matching marble wallpaper!!! Eeeeek!
So excited about having my vintage mirror up again, it's been stored away since I left France

To all the amazing, strong, empowered, supportive, funny, kind, uplifting wonder women out there! You rock πŸ’•

Nawww today is mine & Betty Blossom's first anniversary! A year today she came to me from a rescue home & settled right in as chief bed making assistant, bathroom chaperone, yarn/thread flow monitor, crafting quality control, blanket hogger, worm catcher and all round furry, purry ball of gorgeousness!
I love her to bits xx

Today is going to need a lot of this and some tunes on #spotify
I'm tackling the wallpapering in the hallway!

This cozy corner has been my work zone for most of today. I've been emailing, researching, pricing up for packaging, searching for my secret cinema outfit and drinking tea.
