It's such a glorious morning this morning. 
Beautiful blue sky and sunshine and cold......just as I like it so I might get a couple of outside jobs done later.

Hubby is on afternoon shift this week so DD and I get to have our simple evening meals.
Today will be a cheese and pineapple salad with a crusty roll.
I'm looking forward to DD coming home tonight to hear how her day went.
On Friday she was given a different job. Still in gardening but instead of being on general grounds maintainence she is now in charge of the planting plans and the growing of all the plants and vegetables needed for those plans and she gets the use of all of the greenhouses to grow them.......which she is more pleased about than anything It doesn't take much to please us Tea Towel girls.

Well in the few minutes I have been sitting here typing the grey clouds have gathered so outside jobs may not be on my to do list today if it starts raining.
There are just a couple of tidying jobs to do and then the sewing machine is coming out at last. I really want to make a good start on finishing Marlowe's quilt this week.
Once that is finished I will back, quilt and bind the two Christmas quilts and make the Advent calendars.
I am making myself do that lot before I start on my gingerbread men because once I start on making those.....I may never

Thanks for dropping by today.


  1. Rain stopped outside jobs here, the craft room was calling!

  2. So interesting to hear about your daughter. I always wondered what sort of work she did as you often refer to her being out in all sorts of weather. Now it makes more sense. You are so blessed to have her to share evenings etc. together.

    I loved the photos you shared of your new carpet.

    Sorry to comment as anonymous but my computer is in the shop and I am unable to get into my regular account.

    Hugs from across the pond.


  3. I accidentally viewed your blog and I was so amazed with your work that it
    touched the deepness of my heart and it made me sentimental. Thanks for posting.
