As the sun was pouring into the house very early I hit the ground running at stupid o'clock. Ben was only too happy to go early and walk a bit further than usual. He was not alone, we tagged along with several other dogs and owners, great fun was had by all.
I made 2 bags and cut out several more, got the washing done and hung out. Whizzed round the house and did all the annoying little chores. I took an executive decision to ignore the ironing, it will be done tomorrow along with today,s.
There is a full length pocket on one side to take a bottle or a French Loaf.
The other side is plain.
On the inside there is a pocket each side. These are fully reversible, I am not sure yet if the rest will be.
This is a front panel for another bag, I have 6 of these, they were curtains at one time.
Ben had another walk at around 3.30, I had hoped that it would be cooler but not at all. Once again we struck lucky and there were more dogs to play with.
I have not abandoned my crochet, I am steadily sewing the red bordered Granny Squares together.
This is just a section and the colours are vibrant, I am really happy with it.
I have no idea what Ben has found so fascinating, I had a look and could see nothing.
These little flowers are weeds but they are so bold a splash of colour that they are sure of a place in my garden. This is one of the sets of steps into the garden, I leave the ferns as they do not grow much bigger than this.
Reasons to be grateful.
1. Sunshine by the bucket full.
2. A productive and happy day.
3. Ben had so much fun with his pals.
4. I am off to The Rhonda one day next week with some of my new friends.
5. My neighbour has given me 2 large Hostas, they are in pots but need planting out.
I have had another good day, much as I love the greenness of Wales I am enjoying the sun, I am having to water what few flowers that there are, I want them to flourish.
My Horn Cabinet will be here next Tuesday afternoon, I am excited, I have to decide where I want it to stand and get the room ready. A job for Monday I think.
On that note I feel that it is time to put the kettle on.
