My sewing room has been emptied, all the unwanted contents removed and all my treasures replaced with care and thought. Lovely.
I went through the stash and a glimmer of an idea burst forth....
And a quilt was born, I did get carried away, this measures 68" by 90" and I have another 4 blocks. I kept all the scraps from this and they are together in a box. I may make a few more or just sew them together with sashing and 2 borders to make a sofa quilt.
I was up in time to see the sun rise this morning, it was brighter than this but it took time to get my camera ready. I hoped that this was a harbinger of rain but we have only had a shower. It is taking me ages to water the garden every morning and my water butts are getting low.
I still have lots of calls on my time from family and my friend Maggie needs some TLC and support just now.
Ben is fine and dandy, thank goodness, and Francesca is on top form.
I have my tickets for the Festival of Quilts and Fran has booked her days off.
The strong winds that we had last week shredded a few plants but I had spares. The only gap that I have is peas, I have set 3 lots of Sugar Snap peas and Onward and have half a dozen plants.
Something has rooted half of my perpetual spinach out but I have Chard coming on and will grow some of that to full size.
I think that I can hear thunder in the distance, I want the rain but not a storm.
I have to take Ben out now, just in case it decides to pour down.
