Can’t wait for the grass to grow. There are sweet peas all planted next to the large trellis panel.

a favourite ‘snap’ – wish I’d put the parasols up though

have I been busy or what?

What do you think of my beautiful table cover?  Ultra pretty colours and oh so practical.  I’ve got 4 of them!  One’s round – for the patio table; all the others are rectangular – to fit the larger garden tables. Have I been busy or what???????

Well no, I haven’t been busy with my crochet hook !!!!  They’re from our local discount supermarket and cost under £4 each – ultimate bargain – and they’re huge.  When I popped in there yesterday another lady saw mine at the till and whizzed off to buy a couple for herself – they really are pretty and machine washable.  The crochet stitches are so lifelike.  It’s Aldi, if you want one – but I think you’ll have to be quick!

Here’s my garden sewing studio – can’t believe I’m sewing in the garden in April …

Misty and Mrs Quacky say Hello – Belle was too busy to be photographed.  She was ‘helping’ J2 with his latest artwork.  She lays there and gazes at him all day.

All the photos are with my new little pocket camera – a Canon SX600.  Zoom x18, video recorder and so much more – I’m very pleased with the photos too.

Now, I’ve another quilt on my big machine upstairs so I’ll do my sewing indoors in the morning, and set up some tasks for outside for the sunny afternoons – long may they last.

    The scenes look idyllic even down to the table coverings. I am having a quick cup of tea and piece of cake sat on bench in my untidy garden(which will stay that way for a while), if I tried to set up a sewing workstation in the garden, it would either start to rain as I’d just done so, or some member of the family will require my attention away from sewing (sigh). Well the cake was good, nice catching up with you too, long may the good weather last! Linda x

    Your season is way ahead of ours, so, I am enjoying your pictures so much. Your yard is very inviting………”come and relax a while” it says! Sounds kind of silly doesn’t!!!! But, I really mean it! Jeanie in Montana

    I’ll be down in Dorset for the weekend soon so will be able to visit some of the places you mention on your blog. Can’t wait to walk on the beach!
