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.

Happy Summer Days …

early mornings, garden roses, quacky duck, evening strolls, quilting days –

sewing in the garden – oh yes – I’ve been doing a lot of that!

lots of backing to stop the fabrics stretching, then every patch trimmed to size

I’m pleased to have caught up with a few photos of my recent designs and makes.  I’ve been to two fairs in June so now I can concentrate on my sewing (and quiet evening knitting – even more lace-weight – photos soon) and enjoy the summer sun.
