But I now have the complete works and in the winter can look forward to a whole week of crafting to Tolkien's works, and I then have the books to read, again, although they are getting a bit dog eared now.
Anywho, the whole point of this is a TAH DAH moment, the giveaway quilt is completed and ready to be posted off to the winner.
I have to say that at 72" by 76" this was a bit of a beast to hold while sewing but I still enjoyed the whole process. I will be a bit sad to say goodbye but I am already planning the next one.
My garden has some highs and lows so far, one high is that I now have more cucumber plants than you can shake a stick at.
A low, so far, is that my Rocket potatoes are more of a Damp Squib
Can you see that poor little cluster of leaves, this is one of many that were planted TWO days later than these Sharpes Express.
As you can see they are almost over the tops of their buckets and will have a little more compost today to bring the level about 2" from the brim. The Purple Sprouting Broccoli just in front are also growing nicely. My Duke of York white earlies are looking just as good and the Arran Pilot are also romping away. Today I am going to move the Rocket to another part of the garden to see if that helps.
My tubs of tulips are still giving me a lovely display and the little strip going up to the greenhouse is filling out also.
Last year this was a sea of nettles and couch grass wound through a pile of discarded rubbish, next year, I hope, there will be no bare soil visible.
My little bright eyed bunny has company, isn't she cute. She was nestled into a pot of primroses, that need putting into the garden now, that was a gift from a neighbour. I may have to find something else to pop in there, just for fun.
Now I have just realised that my tea is cold so the kettle has to be charged, yeuk I detest cold tea, it has to be almost boiling for me.
Don't forget I will be putting all the names into something vaguely hattish tomorrow and you have to be in it to win it, come on you followers, if you don't want it for yourself you can always donate to a charity.
