Hi everyone, lovely to be back chatting with you all again. We have had torrential rain again which has caused flooding in places. Thank goodness I live on a hill and I don't have that problem. The rain has done even more damage in the garden, luckily these lilies have survived - just - but you can see drops of rain on the petals.
Back to the Olympics, aren't they exciting to watch. The dedication of all the competitors to their particular sport is just mind blowing. The fitness levels they have to achieve and how they do it is tremendous. Naturally I am chuffed at how the GB team is doing, but I also enjoy watching people from less well know countries taking part, I was going to say from smaller countries but you can't get much smaller than UK. I don't know which is my favourite sport as they are all great in their own way. The TV has been on for hours going from one event to another, in the end you just have to go outside and grab some fresh air
I am still stitching, the piece above is something that June at the club has asked us to do for a competition amongst the members. Still got a long way to go, things are starting to pile up I have to get 2 pieces for our village show finished, I could panic if I thought about it. Our village show is on 1st September and another show in Kingsteignton the following week.
This is another piece I am working on, I now have to sew beads and buttons on it and sew it all together, I promise to show you a photo of it when finished. Which I hope won't be too long. Why don't I choose the easy option in life and just dawdle along, no I can't do that and I bet you are the same.
Had a family party yesterday, it was my nephew's silver wedding anniversary, we had a delicious buffet lunch and lots of fizz. Luckily GD's 1 and 2 fetched and carried us yesterday so I could have a drink. No I am not an alcoholic!! Just enjoy a drink or two , especially on a day like yesterday. My DH has decided as he missed his Sunday roast yesterday he would like a roast today, luckily he enjoys cooking so he is the chef today. Whoopee, so I shall be stitching and watching the Olympics. Whose a lucky girl?
Here I go - sewing coming out, TV being switched on. Thankyou for visiting my blog, I hope you will come again as I do enjoy seeing your comments and visiting your blogs to see what you are all up to. There is some beautiful work being done by all of you, it inspires me.
