Happy Monday - I hope you've enjoyed the weekend. Many thanks for the lovely comments left about the Stitcher's Heart, I just love hearing from everyone.
We had a really good weekend, lots of fun and laughs at Hannah's disco Friday night, then spending the rest of the weekend hanging out with Donna.
Here's a little sewing project I finished on Friday - I've been spotting these thread catchers being made up on lots of blogs so thought I'd have a go myself. The pattern can be found in the Red Home book by Natalie Bird. Very simple and quick, I think these would make lovely gifts.
Donna and I at one of the local cafes, they make the best coffee and even better that its half price on Sunday mornings.
Zoe and Hannah before the disco on Friday night - what a great event put on by the local library and council staff. Over 500 local children participated in the summer reading programme and there must have been at least half present, plus parents on Friday evening. Every child received a new book, a certificate and a medal, and then there was a free barbeque followed by the disco. Hannah had a ball!
Another hot day yesterday and out came "Henry the octopus", the sprinkler
And an update on our green house - Glenn is now making a front door - it's currently being painted so should be ready to be installed very soon.
He's also recently put in some shelves, made a little trolley for all the pots, etc, and I'm not sure if I've shown a pic of the workbench?
The tomato plants are now as tall as us!
We've had some of the first ripe tomatoes over the past few days - lots more to come!
Hannah's little strawberry planter has been doing well too, next summer we're going to put in another one or two.
Lastly for today, a pic of my happy place - our swimming pool, which we have been so thankful for over the recent weeks with the terribly hot days of this summer.
See you soon x
