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 . . .

They are a brilliant blue . . .

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.

2 of my "charges"
. . . some wool felting
. . . some quilts

Around the Block
In between gardening in this glorious weather, I have fitted in just a little bit of sewing to keep up with the blocks
Lara's pointy bits . . .
. . . and Louise's improvisational straights
