I bought this guy at a small gallery about 10 years ago. He's made so many moves with us and is still in one piece. I like him just as much now as when I bought him and have let out a sigh of relief each time he's been unpacked intact.
patchwork strip mending
This old favourite linen duvet cover finally got repaired a while back but I'd forgotten all about showing my finished mend. I'm pleased this old thing will last a while longer. I did no measuring, just grabbed longish pieces from my scrap bag and stitched them together. By the time I got around to this repair the rip in the cover had gone the whole length so the job got bigger and bigger. I now love my old cover even more.
seaweed at Kilve
Speaking of love, this seaweed I spotted last week on a visit to Kilve made me smile. I ♥ this stuff!
One of our stops along a local walk. These have been typical summer skies for us this year, always changing.
T's allegiance is clear
We loved watching all of the Olympics. In the run up to it I couldn't help wishing that the billions of pounds were going into local sports programs throughout the country instead of building works, transportation, entertainment, security and so much more. But the spirit the games infused into the nation has been more than worth it I'd say. I hope the pride continues and that sports programs build as its legacy, the nations youth desperately need them – we only need to look back at the riots of last year as an example of why.
I hope your week is off to a ripping start!
PS - T overuses the word "random" as a teenage thing but that's exactly what the topics in this post are which is appropriate for our summer this year.
