May Sampler

This bank holiday weekend I have been

creating my monthly sampler for May

watching this

 imagining I were her

walking with the help of my new gadget

 getting quite wet in the process.

enjoying it all.
Hope you have had an enjoyable weekend too.


  1. Love the labels for this post!! Your sampler is quite beautiful this month. And again, what has happened to the time. It is very almost nearly JUNE!!! Ax

  2. Can't believe that May is almost over - where have the first 5 months of 2011 gone??

    Lovely sampler as usual :)

  3. Lovely sampler! I enjoyed North & South very much (I have to confess watching it initially only because Richard Armitage was in it!!). What's the gadget, is it some sort of pedometer?

  4. Lovely! Such pretty pictures! Cx

  5. Gadget is a step counter Dan. I'll put a link to it in the post.

  6. Love the sampler. Roll on summer PLEASE!

  7. Hi, I love your blog and I've just nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award. Details on my blog.

    Your May samples is so well matched, Sue!

  9. Hi Sue,
    Your sampler is stunning & so colourful.
    Ooooo Richard Armitage is my favourite actor, sooo dishy mmm!I really enjoyed North & South when it was on tv.
    Love Carole from Rossendale xxx

  10. Hi Sue, your sampler is looking very pretty - lovely fresh spring colours.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed N&S, is there a woman alive who could refuse to go home with Mr Thornton as played by RA at the end?!

  11. I love my Omron - it is the best pedometer I have every had. I have clocked hundreds and hundreds of miles and steps. Took it to Paris, Rio, London.............
    I have almost dropped it down numerous loos but it is still going strong.

  12. Sue, loved your post.. what is North & South? I put some fun pix on my blog.. of me as a hippie chick. LOL

    Had a great weekend.. bring on Summer!!

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  13. gorgeous sampler, it's such a lovely idea.

  14. Beautiful photos. Talented use of colour and light.

    Love all your pix, but especially love RA in North & South; just the ticket for a rainy, cold afternoon of ironing in sunny (not!) Sydney!! Sigh ...

  16. Lovely sampler - can't believe May is over already!

  17. A really beautiful sampler. What a wonderful idea.
    PS I made the Nutella Cakes, and have put a link to your page. They are fab. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  18. Just popped over from Cherry Heart. I have that pedometer and it's made me very competitive with myself!

  19. Beautiful photos - really cheerful. After trying many inferior/inaccurate pedometers I also settled on this one a couple of years ago and I love it. It's a great incentive. Enjoy your walks!

  20. Hi Sue,

    Wonderfull as always, I do like looking at your samplers.

    Sue, what a lovely sampler (as usual!). We are in June now (can't believe how fast this year is going) and hopefully baby number 3 will "pop" out soon (fingers crossed!). Our bank holiday was lovely, we did a lot of crafting as a family, nice food eating, film watching, walking and relaxing...great! I hope you are enjoying the half term too. x Pati

    Was wondering how your blanket is getting along? Would be nice to see it.

  23. Ooooh I loved North & South when it was on the box. Adored him, got irritated by her but it was ever so worth it.

    Not an elderflower out up here yet, and we're not all that far away. Odd.

    Your lentil salad looks delicious. Might give that a whirl. Thanks, enjoyed all your beautiful photos as ever.
    Have a lovely weekend.
