The neighbourhood children came over for the day on Tuesday, and we decided to have some sewing time together and make some Ric Rac Pickles.
Brooke is 10 and got a sewing machine for Christmas, so I told her to bring it over and we'd get it humming.
4 Children walked away at the end of the day, very pleased to have made their very own Pickle, and although I was tired, I had a sense of satisfaction, to be passing on a very loved skill of "making things!"
Today I've been working in my garden, and finished my new Keyhole garden path - thanks to the help of Mr Flowergardnen and Master Flowergarden.
I am so pleased with the result.
This rose is called Ashram. It is special to me as a friend gave it to me when my Dad died 3 years ago. Each time it flowers, I have a quiet smile on my face. It lasts so long inside as a cut flower too, so just a great performer.
I'm loving being on School Holidays!
