Rain stops play!

We were woken at 4.30am this morning with the most torrential downpour, (OK, not as good as Rhonda's !!), but the noise was amazing, especially as it was so hot we had the bedroom windows wide open; and my day continued full of heat, rain and thunderstorms.

With a scattering of work, school drop-offs, pick-ups, and a ballet rehearsal that involved a 45 mile round trip with a tired, hungry but oh so excited 4 year old, I am absolutely shattered.

I started the big Mystery block, but I got too tired to work out the complicated piecing, so hopefully tomorrow I will have my first finish with my new machine!  So far, so neat, quick and quiet!

So thank you rain, you curtailed my fun!

But not to leave you without any visuals, look at these I spotted in the garden yesterday...

I've never had my own 'crop' before!!  Maybe I am just getting a bit over-excited about everything at the moment!  Did I mention I've got a new sewing machine?


  1. I am glad to hear yours was not as bad as mine LOL. It appears that FEMA might be supplying us with some help...did you know that if you have damage they don't offer assistance...they offer loans...SERIOUSLY?!?!! That kinda bothers me!!!

  2. Those are beautiful apples! Think of the pies or the jelly or apple crumble. I hope you get to sew tomorrow.

  3. Life can be so unfortunately busy at times. Hope you and your machine can get some peace and quiet today.

  4. You can't beat the taste of your own crops - ah the good life! And let the excitment last as long as you can I say. One day we'll be too old to laugh without peeing ourselves, so carpe dieum! Jxo

  5. Hope you get a good nights sleep and feel more rested tomorrow :-) Bet you're loving the needle up / down function! Seeing the apples reminds me of mums chunky apple cake... Hmmmmmm... We had 3 apple trees in the garden when I was wee.
