Well, I found the missing camera finally…..where was it? Behind the chair in my sewing corner, where it ordinarily lives and where I had looked oooh at least three times. I don’t know if the fairies have been up to a bit of naughtiness, but I’m just glad to have it back. It wasn’t quite as bad as the lost handbag feeling, but not far off.
So here’s what I have to show you:
Two more Fireworks blocks in Rouenneries Deux by French General…big blocks with lots of bits…73 pieces per block by my calculation. They take a while! I now have seven, but need at least 16 and am starting to wonder if the fabric will stretch that far! The one on the right above is possibly my favourite so far.
Two blocks for Christine in Germany for the Sew Euro-bee-an bee…..she’s making a quilt to go with her orange sofa!
Two hanging baskets.
they each contain…
- Lobularia ‘Snow Princess’
- Glechoma hederacea
- A hanging petunia with small flowers
- A petunia Surfinia – that is the one with the big purple flowers.
Years ago I used to buy hanging baskets, but they are the easiest thing to plant up yourself and are great value all summer long. This year I invested in these lovely wicker baskets, to replace my rather dilapidated metal ones.
And here is the lovely mother’s day gift my husband picked out for me at the garden centre yesterday. (Ladies, let me tell you, it’s worth dragging your husband to a garden centre on the Saturday before mother’s day – and not just to lug the heavy stuff!).
As my son has now come home from 4 days away camping with the scouts the rain has now stopped – there is an awful lot of muddy laundry to be dealt with. I’ve had to seriously fight the urge to rescue said son all weekend, who despite the deplorable weather seems to have had a great time. I guess he’s not such a little boy any more 😉
Have a lovely evening and a good start to the week.
