Today is my lovely Mum’s birthday. It goes without saying that she is the most brilliant Mum in existence (yes she will read this!) and I hope she had a lovely day.
Tonight The Mister and Mum and Dad and I went to our local pub for a meal. We sat and looked out at the gorgeous setting sun over the rough sea and we were grateful for living on such a beautiful island. As always the food was marvellous and Mum managed to drink a whole pint of cider and walk home in a straight line. Result!
Happy birthday Mum. We love you!
I am busy patchworking at the moment. This time however I am doing some machine patchwork but the preparation seems have taken forever!
I am sewing long lengths (10 metres!) of each colour, with varying widths of different patterns in one colour theme, these will then be put together in colour block so they look more impressive! I have ironed the red, yellow and purple strips but the other colours have yet to be ironed flat which is why they look a lot more scruffy! It’s going to look fabulous when it’s done though!
I love patchworking, and I love seeing something come together. I know this isn’t the best picture in the world but I kind of forgot about taking one tonight. The light was going and my phone didn’t really know which pattern to focus on I think!
This lovely cyclamen lives on my desk at work and brightens things up for me. I gave one each of these to my work colleagues… of course I didn’t pay for them… they fell of one of my Dad’s lorries! Shhh don’t tell anyone!
