Summer Visits



Finally after so long, I got to see my mum and dad after so.... long. I wanted to make sure Rachel and David was home before I make any trips up to Sheffield. It was lovely to see my mum and dad.
We visited the Homebase centre which is like a DIY store. We bought loads of plants mainly
Strawberry plants growing fruit and looking for a home, some tender love and care.
These plants will go right at the side of me where I like to stitch and paint outdoors in the garden
when the weather is lovely. Next to the Homebase store is Hobbycrafts where there are loads of yummy items, fabrics, paint, craft goodies. I just got some small artists trading cards being sold in packs that measure at 2.5 x 3.5 , some small ribbon roses for a textiles postcard I need to work on.
We ate sandwiches in the car, then drove mum across the city to get a specialist belt for dad's lawnmower that had broken. I didn't buy any fabrics as I have so many quilts waiting to be finished, and so many quilts waiting to get started on, mainly for the children, all my great nieces.
