Days in the Country

I had a lovely day out in Ballarat and Daylesford, and the highlight was catching up with Gail at her shop in Ballarat. She has been amazing and has rebuilt her shop, and I think it is looking wonderful. Of course I had to have some fabric…even bought a great piece to make a skirt. I do hide my face when I say that the Liberty fabric that I bought when I was exhibiting in Birmingham 3 years ago for a skirt is still in one piece. Last week we visited Mary at Gisborne, and once again I had to have some fabrics. I am making a simple throw for our bed to use during summer. I have found some lovely yellows in my Stitch in Time collection, and added some pale soft greys from Mary. I think large squares and a light cotton wadding will do the trick. The weeds are growing before my eyes this week, but the wisteria is flowering, as is the weeping cherry and the philadelpus…our garden is truly perfumed at the moment. Until next time, Rosemary
