May is one of my favourite months of the year because everything in the garden is growing like mad. This May has been exceptionally warm with lots of hot sunny days. Earlier in the month I enjoyed a lovely weeks holiday in Northumberland. After a week away I arrived home to lots of new plants flowering in my garden which is always very nice.
A little bit of shopping this month. I could not resist picking up these New Look patterns in their recent half price sale. I always like to have a good supply of sewing patterns to choose from for my next sewing project. I can't wait to sew some of these and when I do I will write about them on my blog.
I also picked up this really nice McCalls M6696 shirt dress pattern from my local sewing shop which was also half price. The pattern on the left is a vintage pattern that I picked up from a local charity shop. I think it's from 1974 and I really like the style of dress. I shall write a blog post when I make it.
At the end of May I left the NHS after 11 years of service. I shall be starting a new job next week and working less hours. I'm very excited to have more time to do all the things I love.
Thanks for stopping by and until next time.
