But not the one I was hoping for. Never the less, a lovely surprise! (The book hasn’t arrived back in Chicago to be re posted to me as yet).
The postman brought me the new publication Embellish and the Product of the Month from the The Thread Studio, Australia . http://www.thethreadstudio.com/
I also managed to finish the cuff I’ve been working on the past few days on the ultra suede.
As I have the beads out still, I am putting the finishing touches to a tapestry Elsa made before making it up into a cushion and then they can go away for a little while.

I heard back from Kingston Lacy House this morning and I now have a place on their Allotment course this spring into summer. Gilly asked if I wanted to go along with her and a friend but the places were all full. They had a vacancy arise this morning so phoned to see if I still wanted to join. We only have a small vegetable plot here but I’d like a little professional knowledge. It should be fun with the girls and it’s a good excuse to see behind the walls at the House. I’m really looking forward to it (and lunch at the beautiful stables cafe!).
John has been very busy today! He’s had a fight with the back axles, lots of oil and an exhaust system! I think he’s on a bit of a count down to turning it over very soon. I thought I’d better include a photo of the W108.
And today, finally, the lawns were cut! We’ve had a few tidying sessions out in the garden but the lawns have been a mess. Everything pulls together when they look good. Rain is forecast for the weekend so we had a now or never moment. Well, I nagged and John mowed.
