It's been far to warm to wear a cardy and hat around the garden today.
Although I know there is a certain little girl who would like to see her finished bear, complete with cardy and hat. When bears are intended for children. Always make them with safety eyes. If your not used to putting them into your work it can be a bit of a trial. They have to be placed into the head before the head is filled. I was going to put stuffed there, but changed my mind. You have to make sure both eye's are set in the head at the appropriate places. I haven't a short cut to tell you about, except it's something that comes with time and practice.
Mew has had lots of time this afternoon and has lots of practice at sunbathing on the table in the garden.
This has been the warmest April since 1949... I wasn't around then so I wouldn't know, but it's been gloriously warm after the long Winter. For those who still have snow falling around the world. We have your sun, don't think you would really want to upset Mew, so we hope we can keep it for a while longer.
For everyone who commented on our handiwork on our gate, thank you. We have no hidden agenda's with this witch.
Although we do have black tulips in our garden.
We also have tomato flower on some of our tomato plants.
For anyone who doesn't know, Caroline and I have been having a contest to see who can have the first tomato. You can catch up on Caroline's tomato plants by clicking on Mr Tomato at the side bar.
Caroline is also selling some of her art work in aid the Japan Earthquake appeal. Beautiful art at a very good price, I'm sure you would love to see it.
Lastly before I go and help Mew out with her sunbathing. A very big thank you to everyone who emailed and made a comment when our mains water pipe burst.
Life has now returned to normal around the cottage. We've had no complaints about the new floor so far either.
