I know a lot of people hate dandelions but I love them! They make me smile
and some grass verges near us are bright yellow - wonderful.
Bees and insects love them so I think we ought to.

What begins with O? Owl of course, in fact Boris!
Any excuse to feature Boris.
We set out walking locally and it was a dull and grey and overcast day.
But look at the patch of light that appeared! Just for us.....
I've made several blankets from Attic24 and have saved the unused yarn.
Recently I came across this stash and decided to wind all the same colours together.
However I've started a new Attic24 blanket and it uses these colours.
So I put them to one side, in a safe place. Two weeks later I wanted to find them.
I could not find them. I looked and looked but my eyes did not alight upon them.
Then I FOUND them. I was looking for a plastic bag, having forgotten
I'd put them in this wicker basket.....
Normally it is Beloved who asks (generally daily) 'have you seen XXX?' - it
is rare for me to 'lose' anything......
Well, with about 12 hours before this goes live I changed my mind about the photo for Colourful!!! I'll save the other one for another time......
I hope you agree that the new quilt make the sofa look colourful.....
I only collected it on Wednesday from the lady doing the long arm quilting,
trimmed it down the same day and yesterday I managed to sew the binding on
which I have yet to hand sew on. I'm really pleased with it and love
to see all my colourful fabrics. I took the 2 arm chair quilts to her
on Wednesday and I might get them back within a fortnight....
If anyone has any spare hours they are not using, please send them to me, thanks!

I saw a small bag made from hexagons months ago; I took a few photos and
thought no more. Later I decided to make a bigger version. I had a bit of a
struggle with it as I'd not realised that had to be pentagons on row 3
so make the sides appear. I had to make alternate hexagons into pentagons
so that the sides would appear; I did this by folding them.
The bag is about 44 cm wide and about 28 cm tall.
