Nasturtiums and 2011 diaries

Oh I just HAD to share these fabby nasturtiums with you...Sally brought them round yesterday...she'd grown them on her allotment. Tony had fun faffing about with the picture for me removing a tree brach which spoilt it apparently!
I was awake at 4.40 this morning, cooking under the new duvet we put on the bed last night. BIG mistake....mind you...Tony slept perfectly so I think it will have to be separate beds from now on! Mind you...I LOVE it when I get up early to play. I waited till 5am and then quietly slid out of bed...tapping the bedside table in the dark to track down my glasses....! I crept through to the studio and got the kettle on quick....BLISS 
I had fun making three of the covers for 5 diaries I bought a while ago. I suddenly had a panic that if I don't do them and try and sell them QUICK I shall be stuck with them. I was going to sew on beads and sequins but decided that that will cause more delay..I'm hoping I might be able to add them now the covers are glued on...I wonder?

I carried on with them after breakfast while Hope and Grace painted. This one has my Dad's plans for the 'C'class canoe in the paper fabric in the background. I made another (not finished yet) with a boat on the front. Bit naff but never mind.... it was fun to do!

They are really beautiful. I love your lively colour scheme ... I don't think they need the beads.
Do you have an online shop or do you use Folksy?..I hope you don't mind me asking?..I just wondered!!!
Have a great Sunday
