The last two summers taught us that it is better to set the timer and do only 1.5 hours in the garden. When the buzzer rings, it is time to sit down with water and then clean up.
|All weeded, trimmed, 10 pots with potato chits, the square bed has new herbs and peas, the deutzia is about to bloom.|
|Seedlings protected from a coming storm, the benches cleaned and ready for arses, the neighbour lads not shooting their BB guns for a change.|
It is nearly over. What remains is a pile on my painting table and a pile in the dining room.
My nerves settled, the cat has harumphed off and a video from Karen's class is on. I am relaxing in a chair, finishing off projects.
|We transferred images from Broderie Anglais to create our own collection of motifs, then began embellishing. It doesn't show up well, but the second colour is a lilac purple ink and two mauve coloured threads plus a goldy yellow.|
|See that medium hold right beside the mauve bump? That was supposed to be as large as one of the three to your left, only the fabric was too frail and it just kept growing. The mauve bumpy bit covers up a disaster I just couldn't fix.|
|I like this bit but it is too short side to side with a hem and it needs a hem for where it is meant to go. If it doesn't go there, then anything could happen to it.|
