Violet dreams …

If the rumours are true, it is about to get very hot here in Blighty (about time too). I have had enough of being indoors, sorting and organising, hoovering and ironing. I want to be in a deckchair in the shade of the tree reading silly love stories and drinking large small quantities of red wine …

In the meantime, I am cutting out the fabric for Colette’s Violet. I’ve traced the pattern onto grease proof paper which is working very nicely, and neatly piling up the fabric pieces as I cut them. I’m imagining an entire day devoted to sewing tomorrow and feel quite organised for the first time ever in my life as as sewer!

While I play, Jimmy and youngest teen continue their adventure on their bicycles. They are in Scotland now. I cannot believe how far they have travelled and am very excited that this time next week they’ll reach John o’ Groats. They have met some amazing, generous people on their way (they are cycling for Action Duchenne with no back up and only a small saddle bag each) and well, to say I am proud isn’t really enough. Youngest teen is 14 and his determination to complete the ride is amazing.

Eldest teen and I have enjoyed receiving postcards from each day of their trip, tales of cold, wet, unseasonal weather and the lovely people they’ve encountered so far.

OK, off to iron on some interfacing (I’m so organised I could weep) and maybe wind a bobbin in readiness! Have a lovely weekend. x

  1. Don’t you wish there was such a thing as a never-ending bobbin. *sigh* I dream about this often…
    I’ve always been torn between Violet & Jasmine. So I have not got either – in looking forward to your reveal!
