Rainy days

Hello it’s me again popping in after another long silence 
What have I been up to?
 Well not a lot really just more of the same looking after my soon to be 90 year old Dad bless him 
I am also nursing a burst blood vessel in my eye at the moment I think it was all that sewing I say with a smile 
The weather has been so wet here in the UK over the last couple of weeks that going outside doing the usual summer things was just not an option
 so I got the sewing machine out & dusted it off First I did some digitizing & hope to perfect the tea cosy pattern into machine embroidered version 
see below
I also run up this table runner for my dressing table

did just stipes for a change & was really happy with the outcome
sorry pictures are not as good as usual but the gloomy weather has made the light so poor

Talking about the rain we had 20 ton of stone put on our 1/2 mile drive on a bad area & two days after we put it down we had the most torrential thunder storm & it washed most off it all down the village

Wonderful Day

Had a wonderful time last Sunday with the MG Club.
My Daughter is a member & we went on a magical ride through the countryside I was navigator 3 sheets of paper containing route minding not to miss a turn
 all MGs following happily on a wonderful sunny Sunday
we visited some wonderful locations gardens castles & woods full of bluebells
the whole day brought back so many memories of my youth & the long gone MG midget I used to own in the 1970s if only I still had it now it would be worth a bit
we were gone all day & all ended up at the end at a lovely hotel for a meal
I enjoyed every bit

 And me in the 1970s with my MG
