We were so thrilled to once again have a selection of our creations included in Teddy Bears of Witney 2012 catalogue. This is a collage picture showing my Harley Hare and two little kittens AJ and Cleopatra as well as Megan's Victoria with Sarah and the little pink girl called Serenity.
We have been enjoying the most amazing weather over the past few days, balmy autumn days with no rain and a gentle breeze, time to catch up with the washing. It always smells so much better when dried out in the fresh air.
We are still harvesting tomatoes and beans. It has not been a good year for vegetables, a fairly mild summer with little rain but so far we have picked some 500 tomatoes. My husband has a less intensive schedule than I do and he has the time to play tomato record keeper!
The birds are still flocking to the feeders, the babies now well grown and self-sufficient. We have a flock of noisy starlings who arrive each day. They eat all the suet balls, fight for space in the bird baths, generally behave like hooligans earning the title 'the spotted gang'. Once they leave for the day the smaller birds return and enjoy the remains of whatever is left.
Victoria came to visit this weekend. She is still rather bald but has lots of very fine hair which is finally starting to grow. I have made two crochet hair bands for her which look very cute. All the hair bands I had seen seem to either be on an elastic band or slide on. In my wisdom I decided to make an open band with Velcro to fasten, works relatively well but somewhat inclined to slip down and cover her eyes!
Leaving the supermarket last week I was amazed to see the biggest rainbow I have ever seen also in the evening sky. One of those rainbows that has a reflection almost as intense in colour as the main section. Unfortunately I do not always carry my camera with me so had to use my mobile phone camera which is not the best but the few pictures I did manage to take are quite amazing, looks rather like a large planet! The street lights add an interesting perspective.
Enjoy the rest of the week and I am back to stitching ................
