How's your energy level?


Well my energy level is a little low at the moment,  could it be because the weather is so awful at the moment.  Wonder of wonders the sun actually came out this afternoon, so I went out into the garden to see how things are, I had to dead head so many roses, a lot of them have just gone all peculiar because of all the rain.  Everything has just grown and grown, but they are not as they should be for this time of the year.  I promise to stop moaning now, and talk about something else.  Went to the (June's) club last night, we have all started a new piece, it's going to be a competition piece, which will be judged in September.  I started to do it 1 over 1, but I think I will change and do it over 2.  It is quite a large piece for 1 over 1.  That's my excuse!  I will take photos and let you see it as progresses.

Another photo from our holiday in Spain of my DH and moi!  We went up into the mountains one day which was beautiful, sorry I didn't make a note of the name of the place.  The restaurant served us a great lunch, do you remember that song 'Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun' well that was us that day. 

In the pond just behind us we spotted this frog, couldn't resist taking a photos.  What's the spanish for frog? 



Just to show how far I have got with this piece of stitching, it's gradually taking shape.  Not getting on that quickly with it, as I have to finish that bag (the one I nearly threw out of the window when I went wrong). Just started a piece of applique for a wall hanging we are doing here in the village, it's going to be houses etc that are important within the village, which includes the pub!  And of course the new piece from the club. Why do we take on so many projects?  The Gloriana I am growing in the conservatory is now about 4 feet high, I hope it flowers.
I shall be back soon, and let you know how things are going in my little corner of Devon, so take care of yourselves.  It was great to be back with you all again.H

  5. That is a great picture of you and your DH. I'm moaning now too with low energy for the opposite reason. The heat is just unbearable with no end in sight. I wish we could change weather patterns for a week. We are parched and you are soaked. A rainy week would be a delight and a sunny week for you all would be energizing. Sigh. Anyway, your stitching is wonderful and thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. The weather has gone mad! You are having terrible weather in USA. At least we can get some stitching done, as we can't go outside. x

  8. I don't think I could do a large piece one over one either, Janet! I'm sure whatever you decide it will be beautiful... I can tell from your smiles you and your DH had a wonderful getaway. We went to Spain last year (Barcelona, Granada, and Sevilla) and enjoyed it so much--my first ever trip to Europe!

    Lovely stitching--sounds like you have a lot of WIPs at the moment! Enjoy :)
