It will be going to Ty Hafan though, probably tomorrow, if not it will be Wednesday.
The posies, all very similar but no two are identical.
I was so pleased that the colour repeat was exactly three times to the last row. I enjoyed using these pastel shades rather than my usual bold and bright palette.
Here it is, finished and ready to go.
I have a mind to make a large flat round base and fill it with flowers, it would have to go in a hoop for stability though. I have a small one or two around so it is experiment time tonight.
I will keep you posted.
That blasted girl Imogen arrived during the night, I woke once and the curtains were almost horizontal, the banshees were having a party in the street and someone had a dozen power showers directed at the house. Well that was my impression anyway. I just turned over and went back to sleep.
Growing up under the flight path of a Royal Air Force base,
complete with Harrier Jets has made me immune to traffic noise, and any other noise come to that.
We have had enough dry spells for Ben to get out and back dry, it is raining now though.
Dinner tonight will be my bargain beef strips and stir fry packs, enough for 3 people for £1. I will be slightly tweaking Ken Hom's recipe for beef in a ginger, chilli and orange sauce. He was on Saturday Kitchen and I was lucky enough to spot it so it is recorded on the sky box. I am substituting a few things, no way would I go out for rice wine, a splash of cider vinegar will do the same job. Fresh orange zest and juice will replace the dried orange. he served it with classic egg fried rice but I am using the stir fry mix.
I have a small pile of ironing, it should have been done this morning but I bottomed the utility room instead. I felt better for doing it and it looks better. I went through all the junk and now there is more space. The half empty containers were tipped into one another ( I was careful not to mix volatile liquids together) and the empty ones washed and put into recycling bags.
The next big one will be the sewing room, again, I walk through it twice and you would be forgiven in thinking that a teenager lived there.It will have to wait until my Bike storage arrives, the shed is too far at the other end of the garden. At the moment my bike is in the middle of the room looking very pretty and pretty useless.
I am crocheting some big blowsy flowers for the basket and will make a seat cover as well.
BTW I now have two pumps as I found one in the utility room. Hey Ho, that's the way the cookie crumbles. That reminds me, the biscuit tin is very light. Better think about a spot of baking.
I tried a bar of the very posh chocolate from Fortnum's, Dark chocolate with unpronounceable coffee. YEUK!!
It smelled and tasted like stewed cheap coffee that had been reheated at least 5 times. It is in the food waste bin, I would not put it in a cake as it was so foul.
I have several more to try and am a bit wary, I am not really fancying chocolate at the moment, so they will have to wait.
Yikes , look at the time, Ben's tummy must think that his throat has been cut.
