Pinnies and more pinnies

Christmas Fair at school today. My kids made these lovely peg angels.
This is my gorgeous christmas deco that was sent with my Secret Santa.
. . . and this is one happy customer who put her pinny on straight away to serve up the Graduation Lunch at school this week.
and this is definitely my last one B4 Christmas.

Put 8 O's

I've been sewing some *Apron Orders.* Here's a "pretty pink" one.
I was doing a spot of gardening at the weekend, and came across some little vegi plants in my pots at the back door. I thought I'd transplant them into my vegi garden. I saw a nice "available" spot and thought to myself - hmm, I'll dig a hole there. As I dug, I became SO excited.
It was where my potatoes had been growing and I had forgotten all about them.
I kept digging, and singing, and digging . . .
and squealing with delight . . .
and I dug up 31 beautiful little potatoes (put 8 O's)
Little Pete and I collected them in a big bowl - we washed them . . .
we went and shared the exciting news with our neighbour . . .
and she cooked them up for our neighbourhood christmas dinner . . .
and they were delicious - yum yum!!

Tea Towel Sewing

My latest lilly - a surprise on my garden walk this morning.
I found a lovely tea towel that I thought would be wasted on drying dishes.
I know, I know, I should be . . .
writing reports!

Supermarket Music

Can it be, that I heard Christmas Carols in the Supermarket last week!!
The cornflowers in my garden have been just stunning
They are a brilliant blue . . .
. . . and still the poppies "pop!"

Finally some sewing

I was determined today to spend most of my time in my sewing room. I needed to get some things done. I had to make a bag order that had been waiting for ages . . .
and I'm up to date on my Around the Block pieces.
Lara's was moving things and points,
and Lynn's was zigs or zags or both.
I thought this shot looked a little like a fish from the deep.

Still plenty of blooms in my garden which I am so enjoying at every opportunity.

Paper making is on the agenda this week at school, so Pete and I had a practice to see how to do it.

It was lots of fun - one of my students brought in this contraption she had bought at Aldi, and it worked a treat.
Of course we had a go at adding some flowers!

It was a lot of fun - I wonder if it will be as much fun with 22 all wanting a turn!!
Poppy time here again at Flowergarden
. . . a lovely dark clematis
. . . and this is my first Japanese water iris - I love it.
