IT WAS A HOT AFTERNOON, LAST DAY OF JUNE,
AND THE SUN WAS A DEMON.
THE CLOUDS WERE AFRAID, ONE-TEN IN THE SHADE,
AND THE PAVEMENT WAS STEAMING....

Wow, Scorchio! It's been way too hot to spend much time in my craftroom this week, but I have done some makes as I will be meeting up with Rachel (Mike's Gal) whilst on holiday...and I DID promise to make a few items for her RNLI fund raising stall. I'm looking forward to that coffee, Rachel!!
Setting out the pattern of bunts for two lengths of bunting...these are leftover flags from my mate Sue's wedding last autumn. That white circle is a reel of 25 metres of white bias binding.. I get through quite a lot...3m per length of bunting... so it's easier to buy in bulk. Fabricland are great for that.
You may (or may not!) remember a while back when I showed you two massive reels of thread...well, I've just got to the end of the first kilometre. It took longer than I thought but then again, I haven't done as much sewing as I normally do in the past couple of months.... But never mind, onto the next 1,000 metres!!
I've also been making handbag charms - outside, where it was cooler! These are for fundraising too. I like the Juicy Fruit colours :-)
And I KNOW I said that my granny squares were going to be linked by turquoise....but I changed my mind! I found this lovely soft cashmerino wool in an Ivory colour and it's so much better...fresher somehow. So, this basket will be coming away with me on my jollies next week and hopefully, I'll get a few more squares finished!
Yep, you can all breathe a sigh of relief....you get a respite from the weird and wacky stuff that I post up every week (sorry, Julia.....grin...)
Now, where's my bucket and spade.....?
