addicted to blogging!

oooh, i had such fun last night - actually had time to look at lots of blogs and felt really inspired! it seems to me (a novice) that bloggers are all such lovely people and amazingly creative! i looked on lynette andersons site and there it was, a swap! i could feel the adrenalin rush and could not wait to sign up - only thing is i'm not sure they got my email! i do hope so, i love the idea of making something special for someone, who knows how much love and work goes into what you've made. i think more and more people these days like to get a hand made gift, whereas a few years ago people thought you were just being cheap and not buying them something! goodness, that was a prattle on! well i got that off my chest, but i know you all know that anyway!
finished doing all the necessary with the horses, so thought i'd have a go at the garden - oh my god, all that rain we've had this week is great for the plants, but the weeds have gone mad:-

well the upside is the beans are going well

and the courgette is getting a move on at last, though not as good as Lucy's!

so it's not all bad!

my sweet peas are nearing their end tho, but i have, hopefully got some more coming on

if i have enough time, i might get round to some baking this afternoon - looking at everybody's culinary delights, makes me hungry!

mind you i have got loads of sewing to do - oh well, it will all get done eventually - here's some i made earlier - bye for now.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!! I am totally addicted to blogging too-- I now consider many of my friends to be people I have never even met in person! I think it's a great way to connect with other women who share the same interests and that's harder to do sometimes at home! I sympathize with the weeds... we have that to do today! But your garden looks great! I'm hoping to put in a real one next summer. Right now we're just doing a little container gardening. I love your fabric pictures too!

We've got weeds and slugs in abundance and the chickens don't seem to like the slugs!! (can't say I blame them - bleurgh!)

Your veggies are looking great - good luck with the weeds!

I love your little fabric pictures - I have a thing about beach huts :)

Best of luck with your swap too - you are well and truly sucked in now!!

Mmmmm, sweet peas. The most deliciously scented flower in the summer - in my humble opinion.

Your stitching is lovely, and that garden's looking good too.

So glad you're as addicted to blogging as the rest of us - makes me feel less guilty at my inability to withstand the 'pull' of crafty blogs.

My courgettes are still pretty titchy but I'm hoping I might get some bigger ones today or tomorrow because we've had two days of sunshine! But I haven't had a single sweet pea yet!

Love your pictures!!!
