Good Monday Morning Ladies,
So here goes the last week of July, barely seems 5 minutes since we were welcoming July in. It has certainly treated us to some fine weather!
We had a windy day yesterday, in fact it snapped the canes on the supports for netting the sprouting brocolli and Brussel Sprouts, so I did have a bit of a giggle watching Paul battling in the wind to take it down, we have these really strong support stakes for our beans that I suggested he used they form like a tent shape and he could drape the netting over, he didn't think it was a good idea when I first suggested it but after fighting with canes for an hour he tried my way and guess what, it worked !!! He can be a stubborn old mule at times, I kept offering to go out and help him but he said he could manage fine, at one point he looked like he had a bridal veil on as the net flew over his head for the third time 🤣😂 He got there in the end though. Fingers crossed the white butterflies don't find a way in!!
Today's stunning piece of Art is Our Maria's Powertex Workshop project. Maria you must be over the moon with how your canvas turned out I absolutely love it 😍. Jo Channon who runs the classes (usually) is lovely, our children went to school together when we lived in Lincolnshire, she is a genuinely lovely lady.
Here is a photo of Our Maria and her workshop class. The pieces all look lovely, I now want to have a go, the pieces I have seen previously have all been dark and grungy so when I saw your canvas Maria I was really surprised, I love poppies, like most of us, the finished would look lovely displayed in any room. Did you find it easy to work with Maria?? Thank you so much for allowing me to share your amazing Powertex project ❤️
I am challenging myself to make at least three cards every day this week as I need to get enough cards ready to blog while we are away on holiday. I might have some days as almost a daily journal of our holiday in between cards etc
I Hope that you all have an amazing day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
