I really love Kew Gardens there is something lovely about walking around in the warm glass houses looking at all the wonderful colours when it is cold and grey outside. Yet Kew has something to offer for every season.
Well we have had this lovely printed panel come into the shop and I just had to sit and bead it - I could have carried on - but decided enough was enough - it looks great hanging in the shop.
I had planned to bring in my finished quilt today, but poppy had other ideas - I finished stitching the binding on last night and am really chuffed with myself - another UFO totally done. The smaller one on top that poppy is sitting on is a wall hanging with fractured crazy stars and I am currently quilting that - so hopefully next week that will be finished too yeh!!
I am really pleased with myself as at the end of last year I was struggling to see the woods for the trees and couldn't envisage getting items finished. Julie I think you were so right in your words of wisdom and thank you for your support.
Oh Just another quick thing - daft really - I have just read The Secret Garden (Francis Hodgson Burnett)- oh it was so magical - I had seen the film but cannot remember reading the book before and it transfixed me - I could not put it down. Then I found there had been a sequel written by another author several years later - The Forgotten Room by Stacie Morrell - it was lovely - I sat and cried my way through it - a really good light read that had a superb feel good factor.
Well now I had better go and start the day and show willing. I cannot promise to keep up regular blogs but I am going to try.
