I'm enjoying my week off pottering around the garden, walking Moss and doing some sewing. Here is a picture of my first finished patchwork cushion, very Cath Kidston! It was taken in my dining room and having a south facing garden the sunlight was streaming in this evening. After un-picking the zip twice I decided to make ties instead, less tricky! I have a hexi patchwork side on the go for another cushion but doubt if that will be finished this week.

I repotted the tomato seedlings yesterday and have far too many so I've told my neighbour Tara she can have some for her new veg patch at the front of her house. I'll now have another gardening buddy to chat to!

Just need to sew my red,white + blue bunting together this evening ready for Friday and make some cakes for the big event. We will catch it on TV but lots of roads in our area are having street parties.

Oh and here is what will be eating for dinner tonight with fresh tuna steaks and new potatoes. At least one thing came out of the garden! This will be our fourth meal out of ten plants and only five of them are actually producing. Well worth growing if you haven't tried it before. I just put them in last autumn and gave them some Grow More and lots of fresh home compost this Spring and lots of water!
