I have been doing a lot on Ab Fab, but have reached a sort of stale mate. I need to stock up on threads.
The bit between the orange/black and the purple has been quilted with grey cotton, the purple with purple perle 8 (fans). Where the pins are at the top has since been quilted in multi coloured black/white/grey floss.
Above the orange has been quilted with multi coloured quiltilng thread and the brown with embroidery floss.
A wooo hooo! A friend told me about a lady going round the markets selling FQ's, threads, floss and perle 8, needles, etc. I found her at Brantôme market last Friday. Perle 8 and floss in every colour and reasonably priced. Lots of Coats & Clarke hand quilting thread too.
A walk around the garden before lunch?
Mme Nellie Moser feeling a bit sorry for herself. She is nearly over and is being munched by snails and slugs.
Every single tree is out, but for some reason the fig trees are late this year. Must have been the frost we had last month.
Blossom on the lemon tree. I'm getting a bit worried about her. Every time she puts out new shoots the blasted snails stuff themselves!
Grapes beginning to form. Must mix up some Bordeaux Mixture and do some spraying.
The white lilac is nearly over. I like the brown and white together. Mmmmmmm amazing how everything goes back to quilts :-)
Everyone's Irises are nearly over too, but for some reason mine flower much later. We've got loads of flowers this year.
Time for lunch I think!
