Mixed bag

On Monday I went to Javea to have my float.  I decided to have the 1 1/4 hours as last weeks 1 1/2 was just a little too long and seemed to wipe me out for three days afterwards. I´m pleased that this week I felt better afterwards. 

I have been experimenting with more bead designs using square stitch and was pleased with the results, although they are really time consuming.


More on the craft front, Rebecca and I had a bit of a production line going, she drew the shapes, I sewed them, she trimmed and stuffed and I hand stitched.  These are part of the decorations for her wedding, to be mixed with silver or white ones, 23 down, loads to go!


The first of our iris´s have flowered, they didn´t do very well last year but have obviously settled in now

We have a sudden change in the weather, the mountain has disappeared in dark grey clouds and it´s drizzling, what a change from the 22-24C earlier in the week.  Saves watering the courtyard though!
take care

    1. Hi Fiona, it was fun to do the hearts together, we need more material, they only had a metre left and it didn´t go far xcx
