A QUICK JUMP my dear ladies and occasional gentleman, wasn’t what I was expecting when Ronald invited me into the SUMMERHOUSE this morning for a cup of COFFEE but no sooner had I sat down when this GIANT GRASSHOPPER JUMPED!
I hope you like the pictures of the finished SUMMERHOUSE. I think you will agree it is the perfect place for a lady to enjoy the good things in life and isn’t it always better in the open air?
I have decided with the help of dear WAITROSE, through the summer in my new garden residence I will be working my way through their GIN SHOWCASE. It starts with JUNIPER-LED GINS and I quote “Ideal for cocktails where the gin needs to shine through”. I will keep you updated.
What a hero Ronald is, he has erected my summerhouse whilst I painted most of the outside in ‘Pale Sage’, Ronald finished it off and has painted my inside with country cream . Although we are in dispute. I want some of my externals picked out in country cream and Ronald so far is passively resisting. I have some ideas for my inside which includes some hand-painting, photos to follow.
Disaster, the wool shop had run out of the wool I needed to complete Little Nanook’s blanket. They may order some more but cannot promise. This may see me unpicking the border I have already sewn on and buying new wool, sigh.
Here are two new knitted bears, I still have to embroider noses and will now start on their clothes. Their personalities evolve as I am knitting them and every one is completely unique just like me
