because I spent quite a bit of time in the front yard weeding the garden. It was nice and sunny yesterday and although I really wanted to spend the day sewing I felt guilty after I had received an email from Lorraine in reply to a comment I had made on her blog regarding weeding versus sewing. I achieved a fair bit but still have more to do, but as it is raining now there is no chance of it being done today, so today I sew.
This is a small euphorbia which I have been growing, I got it as a very small seedling from a place that shall remain nameless (suffice to say that taking cuttings or seedlings is frowned upon there) I actually thought it was a different sort of euphorbia like this one here, but now that it has achieved some growth I can see that it is not. I know that the euphorbia that I have is regarded as invasive now so I shall be pulling it out before it has a chance to set any seeds.
In an effort to get myself organised before the Royal Show (12 days to go) I made these labels for the preserves that I intend entering. I can’t do calligraphy so I printed out the text for the labels and then put the label sheet over the top and traced over the text, they came out rather well I think.
