I understand from Jo's blog ( Jozart) that today is Feelgood Friday. And I do! I love this hot weather - yes, I know it's too much for some people, and there have been some terrible fires. However, I have been waiting over a year for this and I'm blummin' well going to enjoy it! And this weekened I will NOT be paradin' meself around wearin' a funny hat and makin' a noise in Furrin Parts, for a change. No, just me, myself and I, Jim finding HIMself in an open field neath blistering sunny skies instead for the weekend. I hope you have something planned that is pleasing to you, whether you are chillin' out or doing something interesting but perspiration-inducing!
Speaking of funny hats, I had a good chuckle earlier this week reading Cathy's blog (Potter Jotter) Her name is Cathy Daniel, and she had used some of the lovely ceramic tiles she makes, to come up with a few anagrams of her name. This was especially for me:
Isn't that clever? If you want to see what the equally clever other anagrams were, pop over and check out her blog. Thanks Cathy, this is just great!
The moody, shady shot.
I am probably the world's worst flower arranger but I think they look pretty.
So after a quick nip into town - I see Sainsbury's car park was half empty even at 10 o'clock when I left, so much for the obscenely expensive new parking ticket machines which seek to curb all the millions of pounds the council is losing with people sharing their unused tickets! One poor lady couldn't see to key in her reg. number how ridiculous, someone needs shooting on the council. I put heaven knows what reg. number, I nearly always get my letters back to front, and I know I missed the letter off the end. So I am awaiting any minute the Knock on the Door from some Jobsworth or other.
Anyway, too nice a day to rant. So when I got home, quick bit of house work. (Yes, I do on occasion get the feather duster and vacuum cleaner out!) then it was me for the garden.
And this is what I spent the afternoon doing.
Materials and tools at the ready.
Embroidery in progress on the Big Cushion.
And the reason for the Big Basket of Felt, seen above :
The Little Cushion, or a pin cushion to be precise. The grey looking blanket background is actually quite a nice green but the colour leached out in the sun.
So there you have it. A short post about what's made me happy today. Oh, and one other thing did too, but you can't see that - a phone call from a very tired chap in a field in Worcestershire! Hope you had a Fell Good Friday too!
