A couple of days ago a box of tulips and a mother's day card were delivered
This evening most of the buds have opened and they are looking lovely. Thank you very much indeedy - you know who you are! I shall be enjoying them for a while yet.
The white vase was given to me, along with a dozen yellow and red roses, by Himself way back in 1978 to encourage me while I was studying for finals at university. We both knew that maths at university level was a bridge too far for me - I scraped through by memorising the theorems so that I could write them out for the first part of the question, and then I would make an effort to apply said theorem to solve some problem or other - inserting likely looking figures into the equations and doing things to them before moving on to the next question... I got a 2i or 2ii - can't remember which now - only because it was a joint subject degree with music. The flowers undoubtedly helped. Anyway, I always remember the pleasure I felt at seeing the vase and flowers all those years ago when I get it out.
Here's the rug I was talking about a couple of posts ago;
The plan is to cut and stick a number of these rugs together to form a floor covering of sorts for the bedroom. It has a much more luxurious pile than we were expecting, but we're not complaining!
'Visible Mending' has become 'A Thing'; there are loads of posts and tutorials and articles all over the internet. I thought I'd give it a try... here's a repaired tea-towel. I rather like the effect, and it is a lot easier than trying to do invisible mending.
