Aching not elderly

Well I spent the weekend wrestling with weeds and, although I am proud of my efforts and it will pay dividends going forward, oh my am I stiff today.

Stairs are a no go and bending down to pick things up, ouch. So, today will be spent on light duties. Mainly I will work in the green house because my lovely husband tidied it for me and now its a nice place to spend time.

I need to get hanging baskets done and herbs planted.

I got the seeds from the good food magazine. I cant remember if they were free or just cheap. When grown they will go in the herb garden. Placed conveniently  near the kitchen but nowhere near a door.

As for weekend crafts I am making another shawl ( a bottom up thing) which is taking longer and longer to do a row but I am very pleased with the results so far.

I also started to make a few squares when I came across the blog of this lady. Apart from being a highly entertaining blog, she has set up an organisation where if people send her 6 inch squares she will sew them together to make blankies for the elderly. Anyone with that amount of kindness in their heart deserves support. So, I made a square there and then, not sure about the colours, I want an elderly person to think, ahh not urgh .

I thought that I could maybe make 4 before the deadline. The theme is flowers for this month and blue and white next.Well done Mrs Twins!!!

  1. Hi Louise
    Thanks for stopping by.
    I thought I would pop over to you. Thank you so much for the kind comments. I'd be so happy to receive your squares for the flower challenge. You really have made a smashing job its so pretty.
    Would you like to team blog? Write a post on SIBOL, and put up some photos you are most welcome. Everyone will enjoy looking at the squares. SIBOL is a place where we can discuss anhything about SIBOL, put pattern details although I have a feeling putting actual pattern instructions up is 'copyright' dont quite understand these things. But you know where you got the pattern from etc., Tell us about yourself we are all a friendly bunch and then your name will appear over to the right if you accept.
    Look forward, no pressure though its entirely up to you!
    Love Suex
