That "stream" looks interesting for walkies RG. It is mild again here and not windy or raining for the moment. Masons have just been to discuss our storm damage and will come and fix it all on Friday. Wonderful.
Trousers now finished except for hand hemming the legs and waistband. Being good and not zapping it with the machine. Doing a handbag now - big enough to take her small PC and pockets for mobile phone etc.
Need to raid the fabric shop for elastic, a zip and some more interfacing for the tailored jacket which I shall cut out this pm. Busy - I find it all goes together quite well with Vogue or Butterick patterns but don't like Burda. Lousy instructions and, over here, I have to draw in seam allowances before I cut. I get my patterns half price thru a subscription to Sew Direct.
Pat - I too have a mountain of fabric but tend to schlepp about in the same old stuff. However, I do need to make some new trousers for me now and some new cotton summer frocks and tops for this year.
I woke up too late for early bird song Dove and they are quiet now but were very noisy yesterday when we had sunny spells.
Hosta - I know there are certain kinds of excitement you don't need but is it not a tad boring just lazing by the pool all day? How's the tan coming along? Turning regularly?
Pdoc - our pond has finally risen high enough to flood the shelf where I planted the twisted willow. Hope it's happy.
I hope everyone is well, or at least recovering from lurgies, and that the weather is kinder today..
