My son surprised me and went next door to help our elderly neighbour pick his grape vines. (Obviously determined not to be too bored) He even pruned a couple of trees for him (must have inherited some of my gardening blood - ***make mental note to myself that I may be able to employ him in the future - but may seem uncool to work for Mum, especially as he wants to be a boy racer and do up cars, which horrifys Mr Plod (DH) ("which bright spark invented The Fast & the Furious movies - the bane of Police all around the world no doubt")*** Now we have a bucket of grapes sitting on the kitchen bench, and lots of peaches and pears from the neighbours fruit trees. My son even brought me a bunch of flowers which included my favourite rose...Dublin Bay.
I on the other hand have started getting all my tax stuff organised in preparation for when the dreaded tax forms arrive. Eek!!! the end of another financial year.
Only a few hours into my rotation...started with Pukeko Sunset and it is amazing how much progress I have made in 5 hours. I am not a fast stitcher, but I am happy with what I have done so far.
Heres a progress photo...
Sorry about the shocking state of the photo. I guess thats what I get for trying out night time photos. When I used the flash the picture was a blur of white...so I stood in front of a lamp pointed at the picture - hence the white ball of light in the middle.
Well enough computer time for me...I'm off to stitch for an hour or so before bed :)
