Apart from that all is good here, the sun continues to shine down, the buds are opening almost as I watch them and Ben is happily sunbathing, he follows the sun round the garden.
My second lined jacket is finished, and I like it as much, if not more, than the butterfly one.
Because it took so much fabric I did not pattern match the back seam but I did get an invisible zip inserted. I used the genuine Janome foot, and hey, it does not fit my MC 8200, but it does fit my little portable.
These buds on the apple trees are opening fast.
I have a few Anemones, at last.
While clearing a rough section I found some Rhubarb, it is now in a sheltered spot between greenhouse and fence. None this year but a little next, fingers crossed.
Just a few of my bargain bulbs from Wilkinsons. I knew that they would be late this year, but will be fine next. I picked most of the Narcissi for the house they smell divine.
Scraps, let there always be scraps.
These come from Hilary at Cross Hands, she kindly throws her trimmings into a bag and drops them off on her way home.
These come from a charm cutting afternoon, there are more butthere are only so many pictures of scraps that even I want to see.
I have been outside pootling, sitting and reading, wandering with Ben and generally relaxing today. I did make 2 Bara Brith loaves yesterday, 1 to keep, 1 to give. I read a few different recipes and then made my own up. I tested it on an elderly Welshman, who pronounced it "just like mamgu made" praise indeed. His family is visiting this afternoon and he will serve it sliced thinly and spread with butter.
Ben has had a bath and dried off while strolling around the village.
It must be time for tea, I have nearly written a Novella.
I hope that you are all getting some of this glorious weather.
