Its September!

Well school started back again today and DS is now at High School.
I've spent the day being a stressed out mother not because of the school starting but because of school transport.
Anyway, lets leave that behind for the day. 

 

I did mean to spend the whole day in the studio, but things conspired against me (see above).

Over the whole school holidays the only thing to happening in the studio has been the arrival of some kit;
A golden find in the local auction house.  

I've been looking out on Ebay but they go for a LOT more than I paid for this one
(complete with washboard, tongs, nappy bucket, metal bowl - all good for natural dyeing- and a china bowl).

There has been some stitching and tomorrow I'll have the latest four Journal Quilts ready for you to see.

Meanwhile, this is what I've been doing with my time.  

Before in May…. and After taken today.

 

If you want to follow my progress through the year take a look at my gardening record.

Photos were taken on the iPad, so they aren't the usual quality, but they do show a real progression.

Start in March;

  1. High School is a big enough step without any external problems. Hope they're all sorted out now. Looking forward to seeing what you've been doing over the summer. :o)

  2. The spring flowers look wonderful - what a magical burst of colour to see from your studio every day. Just so inviting.
