Weekending





Things that made me happy this weekend:
  • hand stitching down the binding on my quilt
  • reading 84 Charing Cross Road, first published in 1970, this is a just a totally charming read that I would thoroughly recommend. ( I might have to see if I can find  a copy of the movie too)
  • pears in a bowl - I just love the combination of the turquoise and green together
  • a morning walk along the reserve, not many people out, a warm breeze and beautiful water views.
  • honey bees on my flowering sedum.  After the Varroa mite invasion a few years ago, I hadn't seen any honey bees in my garden, so these are a welcome sight.  They have also enjoyed my oregano plant which flowered this year too.
  • doing a little more hand quilting on the scrappy sampler quilt
What have you enjoyed this weekend?

  1. It's good you have bees again. Your turquoise bowl is fabulous. It's been mainly indoor weather here.

  5. Beautiful pictures, Julie. I enjoy sewing bindings down too. We had our taxes done this weekend - not very much fun. I hope I can do a few fun crafting things today.
