The grass has been cut and a general tidy up session took place.
This is one lily from a new variety, it is enormous, I trimmed off 5 flowers that had gone over. It is very tall and a very impressive sight in the garden but I am disappointed with it. The colour is more chocolate than the deep purple I was expecting and the worst thing of all is that there is no scent, nothing at all.
Whinge over, the postie left me some goodies which helped to cheer me up.
Pretty Pink Parcel.
More Pink inside.
My Addi Lace circulars, with the extra sharp points.
I am in love.
There was also this little tote bag which is just the right size to hold all the needles. All I have to do is remember to put them in it.
There was also this little coaster, just the right size for my mug of tea.
Lots of sewing happened today, I have sadly neglected the Janome whilst rediscovering my love of all things woolly.
Five project bags, all need a press and the lining slip stitched together.
They are made from a pile of charm squares that were begging to become something
Four are lined with this embroidered flower fabric, I bought it just for this purpose.
This one has a remnant as a lining and I added 2 little pockets to use up an offcut of the other lining fabric.
All in all I have had a really lovely day and intend the evening to be just as good. My new circulars will get an outing, well one set will.
I did manage to read a few posts this morning, and leave the odd comment, and I hope to see a few more later.
Meanwhile it is definitely time for tea, and Ben says that his tummy thinks his throat's been cut.
