This week has been busy at school as usual. You will be pleased (as I am) to hear that our sexuality professional development is over. Today was utterly mortifying. I have to admit that talking to most people about body parts and functions relating to the "s" word fills me with horror. I must be an old fashioned girl. Guess who was in my group again? Yes, our Principal. I felt quite panicky and traumatised afterwards! I'm supposed to be able to educate the children of our nation about this. Glad my students don't talk, 'cause I'm not likely to be getting any tricky questions from them.
I've been a busy crafter this week.
I got this pretty fabric but it didn't really go with anything else I had for patchwork. I decided to make a prototype of a lavender heart with a wee embroidered rose. Again I'm having trouble with the shape. Not so much with the template shape, but with the bit I hand sewed to close it. You can see the edge goes in there. Plus the middle top part is a bit puckery, but improved with stuffing. I forgot to put the hanging ribbon on in my haste to see what it would look like.
Here's my coffee table. That's two quilts plus a pile of extra stuff. I'm having a bit of trouble with my rotary cutter. It leaves uncut bits, so I've got to be really careful to get the pressure even.
Miss Dog is very pleased to have a treat. I love the way her paw is bracing her chewy so she can really sink her teeth into it. She is so looking forward to her holiday with Daisy Dog. Only a few days to go, little dog!
And a wee look around the garden:
Figs are ripening. The birds are looking forward to these!
I'm not too fond of the figs off our tree (which is enormous, by the way). They are rather bland in taste. They get quite fat and are light browny green with cream middles. I think the ones that are pink inside and dark brown outside are tastier. Well, I hope so, since they are so popular in Italy.
The purple grapes are getting overripe now. Maybe I should squish them for their juice. Or I could make wine, but since I don't like the stuff, it would be a waste of time. I'd better hurry and decide before they go furry. Any ideas?
These little toadstools aren't as pretty as the red spotty ones, but I think they are rather sweet all popping out of the grass.
House is on tonight! Awesome. Plus it is on at 8.30pm so I can go to bed at 9.30pm. I'm tired. Bye for now. I hope you are all having a lovely week XXX
