It's been a bit of a frustrating week. In typical "sod's law" fashion, no sooner had I decided to get on with making things for my etsy shop, my sewing machine decided it didn't want to play :( The tension has been a bit off for a while and it started breaking the top thread so I had to give up and find someone to service it. It's not being picked up till Monday, so I've been at a bit of a loss on what to do. I just managed to join some squares for a little doll quilt so I might have a go at hand quilting that.
Next, I dug out the pile of fabrics that I bought last year and gave them a wash, ready to use.
The last few days have felt really spring like, so I've been in the garden attempting to tidy up a bit. The border round the veg plot has been edged and tidied and I've sown a couple of rows of broad beans. The greenhouse is starting to fill up with trays of rootrainers and I've sown the first batch of dwarf and climbing French beans, and the sweet peas.
I've just noticed the summerhouse roof! The covering blew off in a storm a few months ago and it's still waiting to be repaired. Another job on hubby's list :)
At the far end of the garden, past the veg plot is the "wild bit" that gets left to it's own devices. It's just beginning to spring into life, but in a few weeks it will be covered in cowslips and primroses, followed by ox-eye daisies in the summer. The couple of cooking apple trees should be covered in blossom soon too. Best bit of the year I always think!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend
