A reflective Sunday:
I have lived in this house since February 2002 - when I purchased it newly built - I don't consider myself a great gardener but I have planted things over the years and love how the colour changes season by season, how it smells delicious season by season (from lilly of the valley, through lilac and sweet peas to honeysuckle and lavender). How I grow veg year after year (this year being the most prolific) - see all the pics below. Oh and I pulled my first baby carrot to see how they are doing in the new 1 metre veg bed:

White Rabbit Pocket Watch Update:
I have started cutting out the excess from the case of the Pocket watch and started the prep for the actual watch itself - free machine stitched the numbers and edge. Cut out rusted fabric cogs and started a rough layout.
Klimt Jacket Update:
I have made 65 metres of cord - It had three passes through the sewing machine so has taken a week to produce (no surprise there!!) Stitched the first outline shapes - cord thin at the top, doubling in the middle and triple by the time it reaches the lower edge.
Laid out the first section - the reds and stitched them down with a metallic thread - I think it may need more work here but will wait until I have done all the other sections to see where the extra is needed:
