I would love to make some soap, I have no idea how you do it but I would really like to try, Kathleen and I spend hours in TK Maxx smelling the soaps they are so gorgeous one of my favourites is Violet this smell is so sweet and reminds me of when I was a small girl and every Good Friday my friend Jean's Grandma used to take us to Peddars wood and we would pick Violets and Primroses and take them home for my Mom for Easter, the smell in the wood was wonderful and the flowers like a beautiful pale yellow and violet coloured carpet. such happy innocent days. Does anyone have a failsafe way of making soap? I would love to know.
This a picture of Kathleen (cottonreel), it was a beautiful day and we had been to the hairdressers, we are in a village called Market Bosworth which wins a lot of awards for it's lovely flower displays, it also has some nice little shops which we love to browse, Market Bosworth is famous because of the Battle of Bosworth where Richard 3rd died, recently there has been much excitement because they found his body under a car park near the cathedral he is to be interred in the cathedral. The coffee and cake is good in Market Bosworth too.
Hello people, I am still here, the picture above is of my Beautiful Jude and Freddie they get more precious every day.
We are still working very hard on the bungalow, we now have a completed conservatory with tiled floor as soon as it is furnished I will post a picture, we have carpet in the lounge and our furniture should be in place within the next two weeks, I actually emptied 3 more boxes yesterday it was lovely to find my Chintz China and put it on the shelves.
Kathleen and I have been to the NEC quilt show since I last posted, we had a great day, spent too much money as usual but saw some beautiful quilts.
Our little sewing group is having an exhibition of some of our quilts so that people in the village can see what we do, there are some lovely quilts and smaller pieces too.
I cannot believe that summer is drawing to a close I do so love the light evenings when it is still daylight at 10.0.clock, now the nights are drawing in and soon the winter will be upon us, I am trying to think of something I like about the winter but there is not much. My son Andrew is getting married next July so we are looking forward to that, I am busy making bunting their theme is Garden Party so there will be lots of flowers about tied to trees in jam jars and all sorts of containers.
I will post again soon !
