Summers here! Hooray!

We’ve had a bit of a heat wave this week. It has been GLORIOUS!

For me, nothing says “Summer” more like a watermelon. It brings back childhood memories of watermelons floating in the pool whilst we were all playing a game of seeing who could get to the pool in the shortest amount of hops from one shade spot to the next – so that we didn’t burn our feet. The bobbing about and spinning the watermelon in the pool. Mind you… thinking back to those days in this crazy health and safety world we live in now – I’m not entirely sure if when we ate the watermelon how much of it had absorbed chlorine in it… mmm.. best not try this at home kids 🙂

I was busy making Watermelon *Card Purse, when I was contacted for a custom order. “Not a purse with a clasp please. I want something that will fit my credit card(s) in, but flat enough to go in my evening purse when I’m out. I usually carry my cards loose in my bag. I want two – one that is “Summery” and another a Winter version.”

In steps Watermelon *Card Pouch. I’ve thanked Jo for the idea and am busy making a wintery version for her. I may just make a whole line of these. They’re very convenient! Holds more than one card, I’m sure it will also fit in a few notes with it too. Like the purses, I’ve also lined the pouch.

Now to bring out the Pimms, grab a towel finish my ice cream and go for a swim – its not usually as lovely as this! Make the most of it!

Here’s a couple of photos I took on the beach to get you feeling a little warmer if you’re stuck in Winter whilst reading this 🙂
