Just catching up .

Hi everyone , today dawned cooler , grey and damp and it is now raining properly. I'm not complaining , I'm not a sun seeker or a big fan of hot weather , though I do like it to be reasonable. Anyway , the gardens need the water and we all need some fresher air , so it's a good day in my opinion.
I couldn't resist showing a picture of the flowers on one of our courgette plants . I think they're really pretty , just a shame they don't last very long.

We usually have a couple of plants that we buy as sets from the local herb garden , this year we have ten plants lol. My MIL set them all from seed and was more successful than she anticipated . Good job we like courgettes , though I guess we will end up with a freezer full of various recipes .

We had another lovely sunset the other day . I missed taking pics of the best part as I was out watering the plants , but this was near the end .

sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy , it was late and I was tired.

So , my stash from Wimblebees arrived , yippee .

Bent Creeks' Autumn Row , Lanartes' African Woman and L&Ls' In the arms of an Angel .

I've had my eye on African Woman for a couple of years , and when you can get it at half price , you've just got to go with the flow . I also ordered Lizzie Kates' Housework Never , but it was sold out , and a little something else that I can't show at the moment.

Don't know when I'll get to stitch these , but at least I've got them lol.

Progress on Moon Struck :

I haven't done as much as I'd hoped. Most days last week seemed to be spent running round doing lots of errands , and I've got two sports days to go to this week , so not sure how much will get done . I would have liked to have got the sky finished over the weekend , but it didn't happen . I am enjoying stitching this though , even though it's not something I'd usually do , so can't be bad. I need to crack on with it though so I can get my other project started. More on that next time .

Thanks for dropping by ,

ooo lovely. I have a great recipe for courgette and ginger jam rofl. I have 27 courgette plants: buggers. I was kind of hoping a few would not make it ;-)

Lovely stash!
