Busy Weekend

Hello Everyone sorry I hav'nt posted over the week end but it has been rather busy. The weather here is very hot at the moment so you tend to do everything a little slower but it is lovely to sit in the garden in the evenings and smell all the lovely smells. We were busy gardening because we are going away for two weeks on Friday 3rd and there is always so much to do before you actually get away. Kathleen and I went to the garden centre yesterday and she bought more roses because they were on offer it was so hot we sat and had a pot of tea and perspired gently. I have been watching Wimbledon when it is too hot to do anything else, last night our one and only Andy Murray played and oh boy did he make us suffer it was a 5 setter and it was nail biting right to the end but he finally won Hooray! you must forgive us Brits we get a little bit silly at this time of year. I have been hand quilting my yellow and white quilt but because of it's size 100"x100" it is a little bit hot when laid across my lap so I think I will have to lay it across the table and sit and quilt there. I am off to town now to shop for Birthdays I want to get in early and get back before I melt.

It's too hot here too! We have our sewing group today and I am taking some cross stitch to do, instead of quilting.
Glad Murray won, but also glad it was a tough match.

Alabama is in the middle of a heatwave and we are sweltering!!! I try to get out early to do my gardening and then my pup, Suki, and I retreat to the studio where it is cool and she can snooze while I paint. I can't wait to read about your next adventure my friend!

Love, Martha

It's cooled down here again. It was only +9C last night. Oh how I wish I would have been with you and Kathleen. Have a wonderful day and a great 2 weeks travelling. Hugs.
