Summer blues? Ridiculous. Go make something

Finding myself uninspired and in need of geeing up,  yesterday I went for a browse in Hambyance, our local patchwork shop at Hambye, a nearby village.  The flowers outside cheered me up  at Hambye and inside, even more Hambeyance Hambeyance  My browse produced yarn and fabrics to make a start on Christmas presents (!), enough for several projects, including more oven cloths, scarves for the children and a playmat quilt  for a delivery man who has just become a father for the first time.

I ran into a friend and was invited for coffee, a lovely long natter and a tour of the garden which grew at the Mill again pelargoniums at the Millgodetia gloryfrom the walls Jock  built a couple of years ago   

Earlier in the week I walked the grassy way and was delighted to find  blackberries in progress blackberries on the way and the makings of elderflower cordial  elderflower cordial on the way not to be confused with not to be confused with this umbellifer


but best of all was a solitary solomon's seal Zantedeschia or arum lily, probably a garden escape.

Have a great week and don’t forget to visit Cate and other 6-worders here

    Picture perfect day, V. Christmas prep in June is beyond me, though.

    🙂 You are doing wonders with your new camera, Viv. I like the garden overview the best. Jock’s walls are doing great, this one is very pretty with the red potted flowers.

    It is never too soon to start on Christmas projects. I have started the mitts and hats for my grandchildren.

    Visiting a handicraft shop is always a lot of fun.
    The flowers are beautiful.


  14. That sounds like the perfect ‘cheer me up’ sort of walk to have, especially when it turns into an unexpected coffee and chat session!

    Our elderflower is already finished. Too sad. Happy weekend, Viv
