The week in photos

The weeks are flying by at the moment as we approach the end of term and the many child-rearing commitments this throws at me. Very little time for blogging or sewing, and with 6 weeks off stretching ahead of us, I can't see there being much action here till September. But you can find me sharing all over the place on Instagram, probably my most favourite place to be.

Yesterday this enormous box of Kona solids arrived, they are so pretty and zesty and colourful together.

Many years ago we replaced the fireplace in our house, fully intending to buy some beautiful tiles to frame it, but years and years later it still hasn't happened. This week I noticed that the blocks I made using the leftovers of my medallion quilt perfectly fitted the gap, so I sewed a few together and quite like the result. It is certainly an improvement on bare bricks.

For months now I have been tracking the progress of a particular gardening project in our local park. Two disused bowling greens were dug up and planted as wild flower meadows with a meandering path. 

They are finally out and so, so beautiful. I took some snaps with my phone when out for a run, but I need to return with a better camera.

So many people stopping to take photos or just enjoy, if you are a Brighton native, it's well worth a look and is near the Rose Garden in Preston Park.

More flowers at the end of term as we think about leaving old teachers and moving on to new ones. I fill an uneasy mixture of relief and dread about the impending school holidays. No school run for 6 weeks - hooray! keeping the kids entertained for 6 weeks - ahhh!

And a summer pud I made that looked like pacman, yum.

At this point I should mention that the shop will be closed a bit over the summer holidays, first off from 28th - 31st July, so if you get the shakes when denied fabric, you might want to plan around this.

Have a great weekend everyone!
