Nothing like having visitors to spur you on to get those jobs done that you've been putting off is there?
As we hurtle towards our folk festival next weekend, my list of jobs is growing and the time to do them in is decreasing.
BUT, I have been busy this morning and finished off the windows which I started a few weeks ago, ahem!!
Sparkling clean they are now and I always tell myself after I do them, that I must not leave it so long next time!!'
The T shirts for the festival have been ordered, printed and here 'tis....
I was asked if I would design this years shirts and was more than a little surprised I can tell you.
Initially I declined but as ideas started to form I warmed to it and with input from some other creative gals here they are.....
Yep, it's simple, but we're thrilled with how it turned out.
It's one thing to see it on the computer another thing to see your design on the shirt.
The shirts also come in black with a V neckline as well as round to add variety....hopefully we ordered enough to go round and something for everyone!!
.....ans on the back a little something for added interest.
Anticipation is growing....
There's been quite a drop in the temps here and Sunday was a very breezy, cool day.....
The wood delivered the previous week has almost been stacked away Our wood shed is almost chock a block....full
We also had an escapee visit the vegie garden yesterday.
Inside this cage I was growing lettuces and beetroot (first time ever) and as you can see Mrs Brown demolished the green stuff and left the beetroot, grr!!
Mind you, you can see the cage door on the ground, perhaps if I had propped it back up, we would still have all out lettuce plants?!!
The Nerines have survived the heat and are now adding colour to the shrubbery.....
Love the scarlet red.....
This season we've had quite a few Nashis but they have been a little on the small side...need to thin them out a lot more next season.
They are very tasty and it's one of the things I love about Summer.....the homegrown fruit.
But as Summer ends and we sink into Autumn, my thoughts have been about Spring.....!!
With so many bloggers in the Northern Hemisphere looking forward to warmer temps and some lovely Spring weather and my favourite magazine putting out a Spring edition it's not surprising really.
So, before I pack away all my sewing gear in preparation for the weekend, I just had to make one more little stitchery with a Spring theme....
I love Spring blossom, whatever the variety of tree.
It's such a beautiful season....
This little stitchery is for sale on my FB page, if you are interested pop over there for more details or you can email me direct.......
Now that it's finished I have no more excuses, so must crack on with the list of jobs...
Time to grab a broom and sweep away a few more cobwebs then tackle the sewing room, which becomes visitors bedroom!!
A muso friend of No. 1's who is playing at the festival is staying with us and he has been warned bedding is Japanese style here (on the floor).
I know for a fact at that age they really don't mind.
A good, comfy bed roll and bedding etc. is all that's required.
Bit different when you get to my age....its a long way down to the floor and back up again, hehe!!
We are also expecting some rain later in the week, hopefully it will arrive Thursday to freshen everything up for the weekend.
So what does your week have in store?
Anything you are particularly looking forward to?
Thanks for coming over to say 'hi' and see what's going on here.
I see I've got some new Followers as well, so a big 'Welcome' to you all.
