Less is more

Hello one and all! 

How are you keeping? I think it's time for a nice short and sweet post. Life is all so busy and crazy lately, I need to re-centre myself and get back to basics 

Less is more is the theme today - enjoy my lovelies

    What a fab round-up. I've been going through a stash of 1960s patterns today, one of those shifts needs to be made very soon. x
