The rain started late on Friday. It rained continually yesterday ( 75 mls ) so after some quick housekeeping jobs I spent the day Sewing. Yes I did , sewing!!! I cut and sewed narrow white and wider black borders for my Rainbow Bandanna quilt. I then pieced together enough batting to fit ( must remember to buy more soon ) and pin basted it.
I am really pleased with it. It gives a different optical illusion whichever way you look at it. ( 4 different ) Maybe I should call it Rainbow Tunnels. Later today I will start quilting it. It is a reasonable size for me to manage.
This morning the rain has stopped but everything is sh...ing wet. The lawns need mowing as there are grass seed heads I don't want to seed down but it is just too damp out there at present. I did finish clearing a patch I was weeding last week so I could plant out 2 punnets of Torenia ( Wishbone Flowers ) I bought on Friday. They are quite large and all in bud so should be able to flower brightly before Autumn is over. I don't remember the weeds ever growing as fast as they have this Summer. ( someone who is supposed to know had predicted it was going to be a long dry Summer for us. ) How wrong can they get it?
