Fresh Green Leaves


These cut and come again baby leaves just keep on growing. Better than a squashed bag from the supermarket. Harvested these for tea yesterday.  So easy to grow, I have them in the greenhouse but just as easy to raise on a well lit windowsill indoors.

Whimsical Dog

Love the whimsical dog.  Design from Titania Creations. Turned my test stitch out into a cushion for the caravan.
All assembly done on the overlocker.  Haven't used it since we moved house 4 years ago and with all the dust and renovations wasn't sure that it would still work.  Gave it a good clean up, rethread and a drop or two of oil and it's fine.  Don't think a service would go amiss as it must be well over 15 years old and never had one.

Under the Needle

Under the needle today...
A tea towel from Aldi and a child size coat hanger from Ikea have been transformed into a much needed household requisite as my current peg bag has seen much better days.

Day out in Sheffield

Went on the train to meet Rachelle at Meadowhall.  First time Scooby and I have done this journey on our own but no problems.  Takes two hours but apart from the heat we had a good journey.

Did some shopping, lunch in Ed's Diner and coffee in Costa before we came home.  Nice having Rachelle here for a couple of days.

Busy in the Garden

Busy in the garden today. Lots of help from Scooby and a larger amount of hindrance from the Westie lads - so far, Skrapy found a frog a couple of hours ago and he's not going to forget it and Sparky found something extremely foul smelling that he needed to rub his head in.

Tomatoes are planted - note the professional tomato frame constructed by Paul and Jon out of left over wood. Love that!

After the rain showers this week the new flower beds have had a growth spurt and ...clematis are racing up the trellis.

Rhododendron is approaching full glory.

My first Christmas make of 2016. Felt backed vinyl coaster for my coffee cup. My sewing room is my sanctuary.
