All ready to be tucked up and watered - I gave them a talking to - you know - to make them grow! We have beans, broad beans, tomatoes (large and small), cucumbers, and courgettes. To add to that will be some salad leaves, radishes, brussel sprouts and sweetcorn. I am telling you all of this now, not to boast at all, it is to remind myself later on in the summer when some have been eaten by caterpillars and some by aphids that I was full of hope for my tiny vegetable patch and I did try, really I did!
One success of the weekend was finally finishing the Mini Hexagon blanket - I am rather excited about this because I made up the pattern in my own head (its probably been done before, but I hadn't seen it), visualised it, worked out how to do the half hexes (bit hit and miss) did a crab stitch edging and finally added the tassels and Ta Dah!!!!!!!!!
I wanted it to look like a traditional patchwork quilt - really pleased with the way it has turned out.
Hope you like it - a really quick pattern to make and great to join as you go.
Now as I showed you previously, I have been making African Flower Motifs you can see some beautys on the lovely Elizabeth Cat's blog, she introduced us to this motif, but I have also been enticed by the Grandma Garden Cushion on The Royal Sisters.
Before I go, please check out the new blanket Sue has made for the SIBOL project, it is such a work of art - reminds me of 60's pop art - should be displayed at Tate Modern!!!
