Today I ...



  • have been baking - a new recipe - Butter Crumb Ginger Cake
  • blanket stitching felt edges, sometimes with beads and sewing on stars
  • hand stitching tiny green stitches around a smaller tree
  • making plans for a long weekend away - school finishes for two weeks holiday on Friday, so The Scout has taken Monday and Tuesday off  work and we are going away. (Expect photos next week)
  • have been thinking about my vegetable garden and planning what I will grow this year.  I will have to sow some  bean and beetroot seeds next week for Labour weekend planting.
  • am very pleased too see that my aquilegia seeds are finally sprouting - they can be transplanted into my garden soon.
  • was keeping my fingers crossed for Team New Zealand in their America's Cup races, it is nail biting, stomach churning, agonisingly stressful watching these races. The last race is tomorrow!


  1. I love your little trees. Enjoy your planting - round the other side of the world I am just harvesting. Aquilegias are great - once you get going with them you never know what kind are going to pop up!

  2. Your stitching looks so beautiful.
