Well today was a perfect day for me.
I slept in till 8am, the room was dark as it was a cloudy morning. It had been raining during the night... rain on a tin roof, bliss!
Breakfast in bed ( actually I do that every morning!!) looking out at the hills swathed in low swirling cloud.
A few domestic duties to get out of the way, followed by a coffee made using the coffee machine. Yes, I think I have mastered it!! A little 'surfing' on the net to see what everyone is up to and then plug in the machine and sew to my hearts content.
Sitting inside with the wood heater going, looking out at the rain, clouds and the last of the Autumn colour, it was just wonderful, peaceful and I feel very blessed to have been able to do so.
Here is the finished Autumn tea cosy.
I lined it with a burnt orange cotton. 'twas a bit of a fiddle at first but then the brain kicked in, I thought about it for a few minutes, changed my whole plan of action and it worked out beautifully.
Will either sell it through the local gallery or on my little market stall, but at the moment I just want to look at it and enjoy the picture.
The quote on the back ( sorry no photo) reads :- 'I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers' - Claude Monet.
In the background you can make out a Nyssa Sylvatica -Tupelo, gorgeous reds and oranges.
I hope that you have been able to enjoy 'a perfect day' recently.
