It must be time for a cuppa.............anyone like to join me?
I finished the "Wibbly Wobbly" tea cosy today, so here's a photo to prove it, hehe.
It sat on the 'to do' pile for a few weeks but with a market coming up on Saturday I thought it was a good time to finish it off and see if anyone fancied a wibbly wobbly tea cosy!
I found the best light in the house for taking photos was in my bedroom so here it is on top of my dresser............
Here's the back view with it's wibbly wobbly verse..........
I love my little cup with it's bluebird. I bought it at a market when I lived in New Zealand back in the 90's.
Hmm, definitely time to pop the kettle on.
Ooh and I think there might be a banana and date muffin hiding in the cake tin too.......
Another beautiful bunch of roses to grace my dresser.
I have a mixture of Old Fragrance or Old Stinky hehe.......
as my friend Mabs jokingly calls it.
Mabs gave me a cutting off it a couple of years ago and it has grown like topsy even through out the drought and just before you start to worry......it has the most delightful fragrance.
That beautiful old world perfume that makes you swoon..............and I just ♥ the deep pink.
It would have to be one of my favourite colours, not that I wear it or have anything in my wardrobe in that shade.
Oh, almost forgot, tut, tut, David Austin's , Lady of Megginch is in there too.
See the heavily quartered flower at the front that's her.
Isn't she beautiful?
Whilst out in the orchard picking off the shield bugs I let the girls in so they can eat them, but unfortunately some of them are finding the berries much more appealing even though the lower ones are far from ripe.........
Our rooster Noddy, is quite a tall chap and when he stretches his neck he can reach quite a way up the canes.
Hmm, I don't mind sharing but.........
He's definitely airborne here........feet off the ground, trying to impress the girls with his acrobatics.
I think the grass needs a bit of a mow don't you?
Somehow No. 1 son seems to forget
this area as it's tucked away behind the wood shed..............
Red, yes........edible, no.
Don't even think about it !!
Won't be long before we are picking lots of beautiful berries.
Berry iceream, jam, sauce, muffins, hmmm.
I'm already out of ideas.....any suggestions.
Well, I hope you are all having a good week wherever you are.
My little Janome has been whirring away all week and there has been plenty of stuffing and stitching taking place.
I'm off to my fortnightly craft night and will be finishing off some stuffing and stitching, along with lots of chatting and laughing no doubt.
It's great to get together with other crafty ladies and see what they are all busy making.
I also received a packet of Sunflower seeds in the mail today.
Tanya from Suburban Jubilee sent them to me as a fundraiser for the Nettlefold Foundation which helps people understand and cope with depression. They also provide opportunities for life changing experiences for young people.
For $3.00 you will receive a packet of seeds which will bring sunshine into your life when they flower and you know how much I love Sunflowers..........
It's a great idea, pop over to her blog and read the story behind the foundation, it's very touching.
Righto, what was I going to do now, oh yes, time for a cuppa, so are you going to join me?
Okay, maybe next time, thanks for stopping by to say "hello" lovely to hear from you.
Till next time, take care,
