Nautical Buntings

Yesterday while both Soren & Maebh were in school, I had to run to Holt to pick up our newest borrowed toys from the toy library.  As I was there, I took an opportunity to pop into the amazing store, The Pied Piper.  While she had amazing things, most of the better fabrics were £12 a meter!! (Yikes, compared to what I can get in the states, it’s soooo expensive.)  And the woman, was focusing on her project that she completely lacked customer service, not even looking up once until I brought fabric to the counter for cutting/purchase – completely odd!

Anyway, I picked up a 1/2 yard of a great nautical pattern with sailboats, anchors & beach huts, which I knew would match the checkered patterns, I had already made at home.  So while Maebh took a really long nap, I was able to whip up these two buntings which I listed on my Folksy site, and too add to my existing collection of buntings.

In speaking with Shiela the Nursery Nurse at Soren’s school, she told me that during Life Boat Day at the RNLI Cromer, on Sunday, July 28, they are going to be craft stalls and for £10, I could reserve a table with her.  So as soon as I know whether or not I have to work at Sheringham Park that day, I’ll either be able to do it or not.  She also told me that during the Christmas holidays, they do a craft stall there too, so I’ll be all over that one.

I am an American currently living in the Netherlands. I enjoy snapping photos and blogging along the way about our family’s journey as we moved from USA to the UK for a couple years then onto Ireland for three & half years and now in our next adventure in the Netherlands where the kids and are are learning Dutch. As you can probably tell by the name of the blog “Stars, Stripes & Mayonnaise” our family is half American & half Dutch and if you know one thing about the Dutch is that they LOVE their mayonnaise! I seen ’em do it man, they fuckin‘ drown ’em in it. When I started this blog way when it was to capturing memories of our family – essentially a journal of our family adventures, their love of mayonnaise, my love of photography, D.I.Y., crafting, sea glass hunting and exploring with our two amazing kids.
