Lots of happiness


Iv,e had a really good weekend. I haven,t been anywhere, but, lots of happy moments came my way.
Saturday, Silver Sewer called, she brought veg from her allotment ,we swopped plants , recipes, magazines, and a very pleasant couple of hours passed by.
Today, Sunday, my neighbour called with Poldark dvd,s she has been recording for me,and, said she will feed my fish when I go to Cyprus .
Iv,e spent the last 2 hrs reading blogs ,many are so inspiring ,all the craft things that can be done with buttons!!
I managed to get my blue and white quilt to the final stage, I just have to sew the binding down , and I am quilting a lap quilt that I made with a jelly roll ,I really like to choose my own colours for my quilts but the jelly roll was a present last christmas,The wide range of fabric in these rolls do open your eyes to new colour combinations .
Best find of the week! When I revamped my front garden I emptied a centre bed of plants , I dug out and split between friends a large clump of day lilies . I put 2 pieces in my back garden. When Silver sewer and I were looking at the various plants at the front garden we found a couple of pieces of day lily coming through . I,m so pleased. I remember years ago when I sent for these plants they were little pieces of root about 2ins,.long . I could not identify what they were,these little shrivelled bits but they have surpassed themselves, they are orange, I shall get another colour for next year.
