I have been in our attic
These two pieces came from The Gambia, many years ago
I have had these Christmas fabrics for years
I got them cheap in a January sale.
Each year I use some, but still loads left.
Plus fat quarters
I am thinking of making some Christmas gifts.
Out of the Shadows, a great read, not the best subject matter
Last dance in Havana, ready to go.
From last Sundays walk, looking towards Portsmouth
A walk without picking blackberries, the brambles were empty
And because I have already used the Christmas word
My potatoes starting to grow, for our Christmas lunch.
Tuesday was our Pearl Wedding Anniversary, 30 years married, 32 years together, how quick the time flies. We did not do anything special, just a nice home cooked meal together, we do not give gifts, but I will have a bunch of flowers for the weekend. Saturday evening we will go out for a meal with my sister and her partner, just simple pleasures.
Wednesday our oldest grandson Josh started senior school, he looked lovely in his new blazer, so grown up, how fast the time flies. Sam looked as cute as ever. Logan's uniform is not so traditional, but they all looked smart on their 1st day back.
I have a few plans whilst my sister is here, we have a lovely localish shop which stocks cotton for patchwork, loads of cross stitch and a fantastic gift section, should keep us happy for a while and then on for afternoon tea.
I have not decided what to sew, I'm going to have a think, it would be nice to make a few items, I have enjoyed the shopping bags I have made, but now I want something a bit more interesting to sew.
