I have not blogged for several days . Too much time spent on the upkeep of the garden . This time of the year if I miss a day there would be twice as much to do the next day .
In between the garden duties or in the evening I do get a little time to sew before I start nodding off .
this mariner's compass centrepiece is on the ironing board at present . It needs adjusting a little here and there but all in good time .
I'm also hand quilting this large bed quilt . It is very similar to others I have done in the same colours but I started this about 6 weeks ago . I managed to get enough quilting done to put the binding on . It makes it more comfortable to quilt when the sides are tidier . It has a 3 rows of 4 1/2 inch sqs,. down the sides .
As a little diversion I have made this small pictorial quilt as a no brainer . I like making these little bits of nonsense .
Bluebell and me have been making these little hats as a charity thing . They will be put on top of innocent smoothie bottles at Sainsbury's . I think the date is Sept,. !st . Sainsbury's will donate 25p to age concern for every bottle sold with a hat on. I believe Boots the chemist were the sponsers last year
I do look on my garden with satisfaction but it is hard work and time consuming not least another expensive hobby
