Loving this beautiful late summer sunshine. The garden seems to glow more intensely and the bees and butterflies seem to be on a mission to get everything done before autumn. The patch of cosmos in the veg plot is bee heaven at the moment.
The sweet peas are keeping me busy every day. I haven't tied them in much and they've got a bit out of hand, but I wouldn't be without them.
There seems to be cobwebs everywhere, and loads more flies than normal, though I haven't noticed any wasps this year oddly.
My linen quilt is still sat on my table waiting to be finished. Hand sewing the binding on the back is taking forever as I can't do more than 10 minutes without getting bored and wandering off to do something else!
I've moved some of the shelves round and squeezed in an extra table to give me a bit more work space. (The sewing machine is just out of the picture on the left). This gave me a big space above the desk for a design wall which I made with a piece of thin board covered with fleece. It's resting on the desk and held on the wall with a couple of sticky velcro pads, so dead easy to do! I love the way fabric, even small quilts stick on there like "fuzzy felt".
The fabric piles also had a good tidy. There's something very satisfying about organizing fabric, or is that just me?
While doing that, I pulled out some that I think look rather good together for my next quilt. All quite pale and vintage-y looking. I haven't decided on a design yet, but can't wait to get started.
But first, off to finish the other one!
Hope you have a good weekend
