The garden is going a bit crazy at the moment.
1. Today's produce, 2. Runner Beans, 3. The Squash (I think), 4. Longest Tomato stem in the world, 5. Cucumber, 6. The Squash (I think)
I have more courgettes than I know what to do with (any recipe suggestions greatfully received). The tomatoes and cucumbers need picking almost every day. In a weeks time we will have more runner beans than we know what to do with. The tomato truss is trying to escape out of the greenhouse door and the butternut squash (I think that is what they are, but they could be pumpkins) are getting bigger every day.
I'm not complaining though. It is very satisfying when you can work from home and go outside to pick your own lunch. Yum.
Being at home today (our office is being refurbished) meant that I could sneak outside and take some pictures of my new sewing project before it is gifted at the weekend. I saw the ones SussexYorkie had made and had to have a go. The sale at Cath Kidston in Selfridges left me in no doubt of what to make my friend for her birthday on Saturday.
The tutorial is here.
I bought a purse to match the tea towels and figured I could probably put a clip on the loop for hanging the tea towel so the purse could be attached inside the bag. I also added a magnetic snap fastener.
I must have one for myself.... I think I may be off on a tea towel hunt as I want to make one for my Secret Pal and my UK Swap pal. So if you see any good tea towels let me know!
Talking of secret pal. A parcel arrived from Finland for me today.
Some gorgeous wool/silk lace yarn, a popular Finnish brand I'm told and sweets with Moomins on. How cool are they???? Thank you secret pal. It was a perfect parcel.
Lastly, I couldn't leave you without a blanket update picture. 16 squares down.
Another pregnancy announcement today means that you are going to be completely sick of blankets by January!
