In The Background

On days when Se had nothing to do she sets about making stuff for Charity these cute little mice off to somewhere unknown for children.

As Ipswich Historical Society Spinners & Weavers were having a weekend camp the ladies all had been asked to assist in making some give away combined project to those who attended. These were felted scissor holders.

One in particular got snapped up by Dee as soon as she saw it, she wove up on her inkle loom a strap to hang it from her neck. Something about her being a Whoovia.

 As the weather had cooled down to a mild 26C Sue took to rearranging the vegi garden beds. These were copping a whopping during summer time as the sheet metal sides were heating up drying out the beds and making the soil rock hard.
Sue took 3 days to remove plants, remove the side walls. Dig up the grassed area were the beds would be moved to and re-install the soil with added content, re-plant and re-lay lawn where it was bare.

The other growth around the yard is amazing after just 2 years.


I was given by Sally a few new Bonsai as they are selling up and moving. I'd also bought a couple of Juniper to train and Bonsai.

 My Olive which is growing beautifully is all from what was left of a much larger one given to me by son mark some years ago. It after a trim has also produced two further plants, see below right.
