I write this as I watch the Jubilee River Pageant. We spent the early afternoon at church celebrating the Jubilee with a barbeque, cream tea, bouncy castles, crafts, games and facepainting. I helped with the plate painting (with 7 being produced my family alone.)
I went on the bouncy castle with Lottie and had my face painted when Lottie gave me a cuddle and it transfered off her face to mine! The scones were lovely and well done to friends who braved the rain to do a fabulous barbeque for 200 people! I forgot my camera so no photos I'm afraid. We all dressed for the occasion in red white and blue and of course this meant making some accessories! I made this button necklace and brought this fab bracelet from British Heart Foundation. I also made a corsage too.

Next up is the rather cute Jubilee Monstie, complete with her own sparkly crown - we've called her Queenie (of course)
Here is a close up of the charms. I love the stamp one and the mushroom button.
As you may have read on Laura's Blog, She has recently come back from Fowey in Cornwall amd brought me back these lovely bits too. Laura has also posted a crochet pattern for a super cute Jubilee mascot.
So I'll leave it here for today. Pop by tomorrow for Olympic torch tales, baking and jewellery making!
