Our run of the wet weather, political storm and blaming game continue, as more and more areas of the country are under water, catching emergency services totally unprepared for something like this happening over here. Usually we are the ones sending help to emergencies abroad.
In my part of Somerset the rain changed to hailstones this morning, and then to snow, falling on our "not yet garden".
In the front the newly planted roses were covered in no time, as was the new lavender hedge, plated in the autumn, now hardly visible on left of the picture.
It did not last, as the sun came out for a while, giving us a chance to go for a walk. This was only a short break in the weather, more rain and gales are forecasted for tomorrow, adding to the misery of all those people suffering already.
Also today I have rediscovered another one of my last year's project, until now still packed away since the move, Yoko Saito's Mystery Quilt (no longer a mystery), or "my houses" as I call it.
It is time to get on and finish it, there is still lots of stitching to do on the borders.
I have some new tools for my "tool box", these tiny scissors are great for cutting out tiny applique shapes. I wish I had them and the Apliquick tools before I started this quilt, considering how many Sewline sticks (which are great, by the way, could not be without them) I have used so far, using my fingers and covering them in glue.
