It has certainly been a wet old weekend, this is the field in front of the house, more like the lake by the look of it now.
Actually yesterday it cleared a bit and l decided to set to it and work in HQ since l seem to have had most of the weekend off. The basket of rosehips can wait an other day……
I sewed nice new blue striped Linen Bags just as a change from my standard red striped variety. These have to be one of my biggest sellers and one of my favourite items. They are made from vintage mangle clothes (as are many of my goodies) and l think it is their simplicity that l like most. They are what they say they are, just simple little bags to freshen your linen and keep it moth free. Nothing fancy (oh well okay, a flower stamp and button trim) but really a seriously simple item that doesn't call attention to itself, look quirky or cute, just simple and useful.
It made such a change from all the colours and smells of Christmas. I had almost forgotten what my other herb blends smelled like!
Today it is back to the Christmas Cheer again.
