typing this to you all. I have phoned Virgin Atlantic and I am allowed to take a needle and tiny pair of scissors on the plane and so I think some slow stitching is in order to keep me busy. I can never sleep coming home on the plane so I am going to save the films for my return flight as the lights go down on night flights so sewing will be impossible and that is the way I have decided to do it this time.
Our pear tree it is laden with pears so much so branches are bent to the floor with them and thought you may like a look! Gosh I am going to be busy in September ! Some I will have to gift away because there are hundreds literally and being away in October they will rot so they have to all be picked, In addition to that our grape vines are laden too! ..... although they will happily hang and
sweeten on the vine I think. They are only just starting to ripen slowly. They are lovely with cheese and biscuits!
Although it is August Bank Holiday weekend and should be, in theory blazing summer sun, there is a Autumn feel in the air. I have ordered our chimney sweep to come in September just in case when we get home after our holiday its open fires time ... I will not light until they are swept each year. I will make sure logs and coal are in and ready.
On Sunday I might have a little doodle in my design book just so I can use some up quickly. I might make some Christmas trees out of some as gifts for Christmas if I have some Christmas colours .. who am I kidding of course there is reds and whites in the pile!!!! The picture right now that would make a great Christmas tree, minus the clock face!
Well that is it for today's vintage ramble all that is left to say is have a wonderful long weekend and I hope to see some of you reading this at a fair over the weekend. Lets hope our British weather behaves and of course as always Happy Stitching! XX
