I have been looking back over the year so far and realised that I have not made an awful lot. Not one textile figure so far. Part of the problem is that I have been working most days and part is I am running out of space to display them.
I did have an idea that I would supplement my wardrobe with some trousers. But having looked at the fabric stash and the patterns, did not get any farther. The cross stitch hanging is coming along. I decided to put fabric
bands between the rows so it was not too bulky but also because the squares do not marry up quite as well as they should
This my new cross stitch I began this week. It should like this when its finished.
I know I have other stitching but well... it is exciting starting a new piece.
Biddle has been thinking about a mac for his holidays. he settled for a stripey poncho
We have been busy at the allotment and have re done the netting.
Have been digging potatoes from the old plot
and checking the beans
behind the shed we found some rhubarb. I am not know for my love of cooking! However today I have done this
Tonight we will have rhubarb crumble for tea. I do not think I have made one during the 16 years we have lived here.
John has had a couple of days holiday this week so he spent the whole at the allotment on Wednesday. We went down and took some lunch
I trimmed the long side of the hedge (no photo!) Biddle and Gardener Bunny helped plant tomatoes. An allotment owner gave us a tray of very small plants a few weeks ago which we potted up in the green house and this week transferred to the plot.
The weather has not been too bad.Let's hope August is dry!
Thanks for stopping by
