The umpteen seeds trays will remain on the window sills for a little while longer, before been transplanted into larger pots and transferred to the mini greenhouse.
The tomato plants are almost ready to be potted on, they have grown so quickly taking us by surprise. They are a cherry tomato variety which taste sweet and are perfect for salads, a little taste of summer and don't need a lot of attention.
We do grow marigolds to grow alongside the tomatoes to stop bug infestation, it does seem to work. They are growing quite well thus far.
With this strange weather a car boot sale was out of the question so I made a start on the list of requests for the Grandchildren. Bertie wanted bunting for his garden shed so that was duly completed, using fabrics left over from his Western/Cowboy quilt.
All stitched and complete, ready for hanging. He wants some curtains making too, just waiting for the dimensions.
A start has been made on Honey's quilt, we decided to go for bunnies rather than hearts. To be fair I was quite impressed with the overall look.
Cotton yarn and the trusted pom pom maker were used. A good start was made...
I find English paper piecing quite therapeutic, the preparation taking almost as long as the stitching. I love playing around with the different fabrics finding just the right place for it to go, random placing rather than a set pattern. Made with love for the newest addition to the family, our beautiful Honey Bunny, that is what her big brother calls her. Made with love from Granny.
It has been a weekend indoors, with some lovely moments in the kitchen making bread and soup, the simple things in life. We did have a traditional Sunday afternoon tea consisting of scones with homemade jam and cream, Victoria sponge and copious amounts of tea, not forgetting the tiny but very elegant sandwiches. Not good for the figure but brilliant for the taste buds. Is the weather as weird in your neck of the woods?
See you soon.
