Am so glad the week is drawing to a close - it means my to-do list and who is where at what time & with what stuff list is starting to shrink too. I have a heap of camping gear in the hallway as big son is off with the explorers for a weekend camp. The spare room has a pile of boxes & bags with things ready for the fair on Sunday and there are enough clean shirts for my brass players for this weekends engagements too.
In fact don't tell anyone but tomorrow is a day off for me ;) My oldest friend is coming for a coffee and a natter and after that I shall be attaching myself to my sewing machine. I discovered in the back of my wardrobe 4 skirts I made for myself about 6 or 7 years ago - the style now is too long for me so I've started altering them into shorter versions which suit my lifestyle now more. One is done and the plan is to get the another 2 done tomorrow. I also found a length of fabric I bought over a year ago to make some for me with - well it is going to be a dress for me, hopefully by the end of the weekend. We have a family party next weekend and I need something new too wear!
So today there are no photos of makes - instead before the storm this afternoon I was wandering around the garden, taking pics of some of the flowers that are brightening up the borders;
Things looked even better after the downpour, the first decent rain we've had here since February. You could almost hear the flowers cheering, see the grass going greener and the weeds growing!
One small downside - little son was supposed to go sailing with the school tonight but instead they've been racing up and down the river in speedboats - they even let the children drive. Apparently it was great fun and the sailing lessons will start after the hols when hopefully the weather will be calmer.
I hope everyone has a fab bank holiday weekend whatever you are doing.
I'll be back after the weekend with photos of ours.
