Jubilee celebrations….

in and around our town. 

Here’s what our shopping precinct looked like, red, white and blue bunting everywhere!

Even our car park joined in!

And shop windows decked out in Royal memorabelia.  Here’s the local Co-Op funeral shop window.  They always have a superb window display and they have surpassed themselves with this!

On Tuesday we had a craft buddy Jubilee tea at Burn’s craft cabin, including salmon and cucumber sandwiches, copious cups of tea in bone china tea set, and more cupcakes, jam tarts and scones!  We made these patriotic ATCs.

It looks like you had a really good Jubilee weekend, and I just love that Union Jack cushion, I would never have thought of making one in purples!
