On the gardening front the raspberries are ready to pick two months early. They normally are ready in late August / September. We are still eating raspberries from last year as we had such a bumper crop, not that I am complaining. One of my favourite desserts and only 23 cals is sugar free jelly with raspberries this time of year I could eat it everyday.
The duckweek in the pond is out of control so I am making a real effort to eradicate as much as I can every time I go out to feed the fish.
My new 'Swift' arrived and I have been keen to try it out and wind some of my bargain wool. A search of my room found the only place it would fit was to my computer table, slight problem that my wool winder will only fit to a low coffee table. I placed the coffee table on my sewing table and Bingo it worked a treat and with in a couple of minutes I had two skeins of wool wound into cakes.
|Strange set-up but it worked.|

The weather here is still glorious and seems a shame to waste it by not washing some of my quilts.
This quilt is on Abigail's bed when she stays here and had it's first wash in the washing machine. I used a quick cycle and placed a colour catcher in with it 'just in case'.
|This is my kind of washing|
