Spent the first May holiday in the garden and making bunting for two important occasions:
– the Friends of Rock Road Library Plant Sale:
– the special birthday of my Writtle College RHS tutor – perhaps the bunting will be feature at her weekend celebration event in Beth Chatto’s garden:
Sapphire blue was the party theme for this centennial!
New (found in cupboard and specially chosen John Lewis) fabric was used for the pennants – but off-cuts from shortening curtains and worn-out sheeting was used for the tape.
Unsurprisingly, the birthday girl’s outfit matched perfectly.
19 March is a very sad anniversary for my family.
In fond remembrance of my sister, I began some bunting using some cheap cake print fabric I bought many years ago to use at the wonderful, fund-raising coffee mornings that she regularly held at her home.
The bunting will be used to promote ‘cake’ events at Rock Road Library.
I enjoyed selecting the fresh Spring pink, blue and green fabrics – reminding me of our favourite childhood Blackberry Farm stories.
I was delighted to learn that a friend and her partner had decided to marry having been together for 25 years with three great kids!
My contribution to the wedding garden party was bespoke bunting created from some multi-coloured, stripy, underpants deemed redundant by my daughter’s boyfriend!
This bunting was made for a very special, sunny wedding in Yorkshire held a gigantic tepee in a glorious garden. Sid inspected the work and deemed it satisfactory!

In 2016, the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings commissioned some ‘corporate’ bunting to add a party atmosphere to the site of their annual volunteer working party at Greatham Church – it made another appearance at the Lumsdale Working party in 2017 and at Eastbury Manor in 2018 – Barking & Dagenham video.
In June, the family celebrated the 90th birthday of a very special lady!
Bunting to decorate the garden for the party of 100 guests is essential!
In fond remembrance of a popular villager, Sew-in-Company inaugural member and beloved sister, Hauxton folk met one afternoon to create some bunting for village events beginning with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in June 2012 – it has subsequently made regular appearances!
