On one of our warmer near-end Spring days, and with the foreseeable forecast looking bright, I decided to wash and put away my hand-knitted socks (and one of The Golfer’s jumpers) for the very last time this yearNeedless to say, the pundits got it wrong and there’s been at least one more day where socks and boots were required!
The garden is looking lovely the bottle brush is bursting and the air is filled with the sounds of busy bees as they take full advantage of the bloomsbest of all I get to see it from my chairthe new daisy I bought has gone from thisto thisand the pots of dahlias and petunias are coming out toowith our lovely warm weather and deluges (you may have seen Melbourne Cup coverage with the downpour that day) and light rain (like yesterday – just gentle this time) helping their growth.
At the greengrocers the other day, I spotted some Sweet William and have put that in the jug with the Paper DaisiesOn the sewing front, I have more borders for “Taking Liberties” finished and have started on the hexagon row, now choosing backgrounds ready to cut and applique downLoving // Sewing “Taking Liberties” – just really enjoying this fabric/stitching journey
Eating // Lots of salad at the moment. Cutting up lettuce, cabbage, celery, cucumber, red pepper and putting it into a container in the fridge, then when needed, taking out our serves and adding other (softer) veggies like mushrooms, avocado, tomatoes and a dressing. Only half the work!
Drinking // Mineral water
Feeling // Daunted by the approaching Christmas season – I don’t do it well.
Dreaming // Of that lovely time just after Christmas when we can all relax!
