A few weeks ago I decided to get out my sewing machine and had an afternoon sewing session to make up some of the little projects I'd stitched this year so far. What a lovely time I had, matching up fabrics and trims, stuffing and hand sewing.

There's one or two others but will reveal them a bit later in the week - it's a secret!
At the moment our tomatoes in the greenhouse have gone into overload and we have been picking an ice cream container every day! I also picked the first of the peppers recently -yum!
Glenn and I are going to have a go at making some tomato relish this weekend - that will be interesting! This past weekend we had an attempt at bottling pickled onions, we both love them, now we have to wait three months to see how they've turned out!
We're still swimming most days - we've probably spent more time in our pool this summer then the past three summers combined. Hannah's confidence in the water over the past few months has gone ahead in leaps and bounds, which is wonderful to see.
I couldn't resist showing this snap of Miss Poppy taken one hot day last week. This particular spot on the stones is where you'll find her sprawled out, and quite often in the exact pose, during the heat of the day.
Thanks for your kind words. See you soon x
