Glorious Sunshine!

It is the most gloriously sunny hot day today - this is what I'm seeing from my balcony - not a bad view really!
I should be in the garden this afternoon - have been attacking the front garden for the last couple of days - though I think ''wilderness'' is a more appropriate description for that part of the garden! I'm not sure you can really even see where I have been but I have discovered some of the healthiest specimens of thistles that I've ever seen! Prize winning numbers they were! It's a little too hot right now, though, so may go back to it later this afternoon.

Last night I finished block four of Vero's mystery quilt - it was such fun to stitch and I really really love it!
And today the postie brought me some of these...
...gorgeous new buttons from Theodora Cleave. I think I will have a little play with a couple of them tonight. Postie has brought me some very nice little parcels lately.

Isn't this the most amazing colour - these little lobelia are pretty hardy to survive in this planter as I often forget to water them - it doesn't seem to worry them though.
I think I've just been talked into taking someone over to Signal Hill for a few downhill runs! I suppose it's a way to avoid the ''wilderness'' for a little longer and I don't really mind driving up and down the hill half a dozen times as it's good ''thinking'' time - many a project has been sorted out in my head on that road!
So, I'm off to drive Mr Jake!
Happy stitching

Hi Jenny,
I really love Vero's Mystery quilt blocks. Id you to see pictures of the other 3 blocks. Her work is lovely and I recently bought her book of her first Mystery quilt which is also gorgeous.

Hi Jenny,
Vero's block looks great. I haven't heard of her before, but I will certainly keep an eye out :)

Hugs, Sharon

The finished block looks great! And the buttons are very elegant. Especially the black cat!
