Trying to commit

I said yesterday I would try to commit a bit more time to my blog so here goes .This is my Lavender hedge that has flowered really well again this year . I should be cut now if I want to keep the lavender but I always feel it's a sin to chop it . Other people get pleasure from it , I notice them stop and look as they are passing . I would feel guiltyso it will stay for the bees and passing folk to enjoy. It is about 10 foot long .

Bluebell went on her hols last week . She bought me gifts  .This beautiful china cup saucer and plate for display on my dresser . A lovely wool felted flower brooch , it looks really nice on my cream cotton jumper , and a tablet of hand made freesia soap .  I love receiving soap . One very happy lady here .

This is a cot quilt I made this last week for a neighbour . I might find I have it left on my hands . It has happened in the past.

And this is a shop quilt I fell in love with when spending a day in town last week . Pale grey and white . The strange thing is , I cannot bear the colour grey . I don't wear it . I don't paint furniture grey . Never have liked it .BUT perhaps I'm facing my demons , I fell in love with this quilt the moment I saw it . I'm not a fan of stripes either but this quilt has stripes too .
I have had days lately when I haven't felt very energetic . I noticed after eating anything with wheat I was very uncomfortable , so I have modified my intake and lo and behold my feet have stopped being swollen . I hope it is just a passing hiccup , I love sandwiches . I have also gone off tea drinking , normally  I drink a lot of tea . After a cup of tea I feel swamped with fluid so I have to leave that off . It cannot be the milk because I feel o'k after cereal and I have milk in coffee and thats o'k.  Pehaps I should ask the doctor for a allergy test .

Nothing else to report today , let's see what tomorrow brings
