No , not the flight of a Bumble Bee, just me scuttlebutting around like a blue bummed fly for the past few days. Lots of family and friend things to go to, I was quite pleased that it rained. It meant that I did not pine to be in the garden, I did manage to tie up my sweetpeas and have cut a few bunches, this is the latest.

I have a tiny courtyard outside the kitchen door and sitting on the table they fill it with their perfume.

I made time to finish the floor quilt.

I did some echo quilting on it, fast and simple.

I backed it with the yellow humming bird print from Fabric Guild and used the sashing fabric to make it wide enough, that also came from the Fabric Guild and was a fantastic £2.20 a metre.

I did a quick shop this morning and popped into the library this afternoon. That's it really, I have driven more miles in the last 3 days than I usually do in a month and my hip and knee are telling me so.

It will be a stir fry tonight, Quorn and a pack of RTC veg mix that I picked up a week or so ago and bunged in the freezer. No rice or noodles, I don't need the carbs after all that sitting down. I have some fresh fruit salad in the fridge if I am still hungry.

On that note I need to check the washing line, I have played catch up with laundry and cleaning this afternoon, I have even managed to iron the stuff as it came off the line.

  1. love your flowers such a pretty bunch. As always your stitching is fantastic, brilliant and very pretty.

    1. Thank you Marlene, my sweetpeas are in the sitting room now and they still smell heavenly.

  2. The sweet peas are so beautiful. I too have line dried laundry, however.... It has been added to the ironing pile!

    1. My ironing stacked up today, I filled the whirlygig before I left and it is all dry but it can wait till the morrow.
