Fabworks Mill, Dewsbury

5 lengths of knit fabric - 3 of them organic cotton, 1 polyester jersey double layer knit and a cotton viscose elastase.  Worth a 1.5 hour drive to find so much choice of quality jersey fabrics.  Keep me busy a while 🙂

Tomato Harvest

Bowl of Mountain magic and a large Shirley. Better check I've got soup and chutney ingredients as there's lots more to come.

Lilies in my Garden

You can't beat Morrisons for great value plants, shrubs and trees.  Our garden isn't huge but with a complete re-landscape there are lots of plants needed to get it set up and most of what we've bought have come from Morrisons special and seasonal offers.  Even full price they're a fraction of other places prices.  There are five different lillies here and the pack of bulbs was one of a 3 for £5 offer - £1.66 for 5 magnificent plants.  

They smell gorgeous!

The scent is amazing!

Mug Quilt

Sometimes nothing goes to plan – started this mug quilt with a Fru Blomgren design and finished it today. 

May your day be filled with joy and laughter!

Had to change tack so many time as I kept making daft mistakes – my mind must be elsewhere at the moment.  Anyway, it will catch the coffee cup drips as I'm ready for a fresh coaster.
