Hello, I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed the fireworks. We stayed home as usual trying to distract Lottie and keep her ears covered with her blanket! She used to hate all the noise, but didn't seem so bothered this year thankfully. I did manage to sneak upstairs and watch a good display from the window though :)
I've been making more candles and writing labels this week. Decided to use raffia to tie them on for a country look.
Also finished off another of my quilts. This one's been sat in my room for at least a couple of years. I've shown it before Here and Here and finally got it quilted.
I used an old Laura Ashley remnant for the back. It's a little thicker than quilting fabric but I was glad to use it up after sitting in my stash for years!
There's a lot of pink and purple going on so I bound it with a yellow spotty fabric to lighten it a bit. Very happy to get this one finished at last. I love all the feminine fabrics. Sort of makes me think of a flower garden.
The garden is next on the list. It needs a good tidy now everything is past it. There are still some leeks and brassicas and I managed to find enough for a bowl of salad a few days ago. Last of the greenhouse tomatoes, some beetroot leaves and some of my precious orange pepper. I had a few in the greenhouse that were refusing to change colour, so I bought some in and put them in the fruit bowl with some bananas. Hey presto, they turned orange in a couple of days! It's been a strange gardening season. Here's hoping for a good one next year!
Bye for now.
