Yvie - have a great holiday.
Pat - I agree. Lovely design for a tapestry or cross stitch. I spent my day at patchwork class doing felt appliqué using blanket stitch and chain stitch which I haven't done since I was about 10 which is many decades ago. My hand started seizing up which I hope is just wear and tear from waving a paint roller about for 8 days.
Grey and cool here and set to get wet and windy tho not as much as originally forecast. Either way I'm on curtain altering and chair painting duties for Possum's apartment. The lift has broken - again - so we have to lug everything up 4 flights of stairs..........but she'll have plenty of light and a great view of Namur citadel which has lots of grass and trees so some greenery all year.
The farmers have been up till the small hours and out early again to harvest their wheat and gather in the straw bales before they all get soaked. No stubble burning here. It gets ploughed in and then they sow a green manure.
Our own garden is looking really very good considering I've not done much in it for weeks - apart from the veggie patch which has succumbed to slugs and never really got going this year with all that cold and rain earlier on.
