When we were in Eyemouth on Saturday, we had a browse round one of the charity shops, and as soon as I saw this bundle, I grabbed it, as it was only £1.50
two frames for hand quilting - an absolute bargain!
I also bought this storage box in Homebase in Berwick, as it was very reasonably priced. Malcolm asked me what I would put in it ..... to which I answered "stuff"!!
it didn't take me long to fill it with lots of my beach finds
on Sunday afternoon I was going to do some fmq, so I had a quick practice, filling in this shape which I had previously sewn
I can't show you the whole thing as it is a present
but I'll tease you with a little flower .......
...... or two!
out in the garden, there are real flowers to enjoy. Last year our passion flower sulked and produced one bud, which didn't flower, but this year it is covered in buds which are producing beautiful flowers
a textured appliqué, perhaps?
another clematis has flowered
and this one has flowered for a second time. It looks as if the new flower is on the same stem as the old one, but the new shoot had twined round the old shoot
big buds on this clematis
and tiny buds on this one
hopefully these little buds will produce olives
and these grapes will grow a bit bigger
I tried and tried to capture bees on the lavender
but as soon as you get them in focus they buzz off to the next flower
so all you get is a blur!
when I was sorting out the flower photos, I realised that I have quite a lot of bird photos that I haven't shared with you, so pop back in tomorrow to see them!
