The weather has finally decided to brighten. It's been a lovely weekend of blue skies and sunshine, with just a slight nip in the air to remind you that it's September now. I was beginning to think we wouldn't see the sun again...
I managed to get out and have a long walk at Hilliers, and also did a lot of measuring and sewing... A lady at work asked if I'd finish making her curtains for her on my new "work from home day". She cut them out at least 2 1/2 years ago but didn't actually manage to sew them for one reason and another. But they're nearly done now.
But why the Last Hurrah??? Well, my wonderful lily has nearly finished flowering and is having one last "hurrah". Most of the blooms have been cut and brought indoors and displayed in champagne glasses - did I mention that before?? There's just the last few left now, so I thought I'd leave them on the plant. Three flowers open and 2 fat buds still to come. Soon!
With all the curtain making there hasn't been any time to make shorts during my first 3 day weekend, so I might try and make a pair or two in the evenings before I get them posted off by the end of the week. I must try and make some more smiley faces too - they were fun.
That's all for now. It will feel strange going to work tomorrow thinking it's Monday when it will actually be Tuesday... I'll let you know how that one goes!
