You should see my sewing room, truly like a bomb sight so again that is going to be addressed today as well. I think this should take up my whole day to be honest but then I can start next week fresh and get down to some serious stitching which has been on hold for far to long. It has cooled here slightly and there is more of a sea breeze which is more than welcome here.
We are not that used to such hot weather in England and not for this long either and when I speak to friends they are all saying how lethargic they feel at the moment and I can actually say I do as well. It may be a combination of tearing the house apart for said journal and the heat, who knows but it feel I could go sleep more right now as well.
However I am resolute in the fact that today is tackle the mess day and then later on I will sit outside in the shade and actually go through the journal and get some things written up in the appropriate
Next week I have a list of things to be done and one of them at the top of list is to cover some buttons for two of my dresses that are being made. I really must get on with that and give those to Debbie who is making for me. I also have some embroidery to do on one as well so I guess we will swap over a bag of bits to each other. I am very excited. In addition, she does not know yet, that Cabbages and Roses fabrics have been bought ... eek and I would like a bit of a rush job on one of them. Honestly she is going give me a look ( the one that says how many arms do you think I have Sarah and am I allowed to sleep occasionally!!)
I am still to finish my mushroom sampler and really I have so much to do. This week has been a strange one as well with my Husband working from home as he has not been well at all. Last weekend he was bitten by something, not a midge either. His leg is huge and it really has no ankle. He can not get a shoe on and it is painful. He does not do ill very well so he has been a bit grumps!
He can not walk properly either so I am running around with drinks, tablets, food ... do you know I
Still ... I found my journal (big huge grin) so nothing else phases me right now ....
I can not believe however where this week has gone to, this time last week I was preparing to attend The Summer Brocante and Cowdray and getting everything ready and here we are Friday again. The world is spinning too fast.
This morning early when I went out to fill the bird bath and feed the little birdies, including my gorgeous lady Miss Muddy Beak, I also took out a handful of strands of fabrics from paisleys and eiderdown fabrics that I have been using. I popped them in our pear tree and and came back in. I watched as Miss Muddy went back and forth so she is still sorting her residence out it seems. Although she has moved and I wonder if Mr Robin became too much for her. Thing is he was not vocal with her it was the other way around he used to just stare at her. I kept thinking it was a look that said 'woman be still and give others a chance' it did amuse me somewhat.
I have just taken a peak out and it has all gone and no it is not flying around in a ball in the garden,its been collected so there are some very fluffy and pretty nests out there in the garden and surrounding
Anyway enough of my rambles today, I am off to have some breakfast and a coffee and then it is hi ho off to work ( cleaning up) I go. It will make me feel so much better I can tell you.
I am really looking forward to getting it all put away and then going in the garden with my journals. The sound of the birds singing their songs and in the shade of the big umbrella I will be able to think and sort out my journals. Monday will be a fresh start and hopefully the beginning of a very productive week indeed.
Hoping you all have a wonderful weekend and as always Happy Stitching! XX
