I put 3 candles on it as a token gesture and once it has been quilted I will embroider a flame on each. When I make the children's I will be making them landscape and less layers. That way I will be able to put fat candles on and some embellishment.
My "Brucie Bonus" is this growing stack of patches, I have as many again to join and will then turn them into 4 patches and so on. I thought that I better separate the colours so that I get an even blend.
I took Maggie shopping this morning and picked up another bunch of roses, these ones have a light perfume, another bonus.
They have only been in the house for 5 hours and have started to open up. I hope that they last at least half as long as the last bunch.
Before it was fully light I took a photo of "my" mountain.
Swathed in mizzle but it still lifts my heart and soul to look across, Morriston is on the other side and I have heard it referred to as Morriston Mountain. Last week when walking Ben I met a hiker who was walking over it to Swansea. Rather her than me, although there was a time........
I have some cushion backs to make later, I will be using the Hummingbird print for most of them. I just want to find a blue for James's cushion and get that finished and put away.
Dinner tonight is Pork Casserole with mash and cabbage, I will have some grapefruit and orange segments if I fancy a pudding.
Now I am off to look for my air erasable marking pen, I dropped it this morning and it has rolled under something. I do have 2 others but this is very fine tipped and I love it, once found I will be looking to buy a few.
