8pm yesterday evening - sunshine and flowers!
I negotiated to take Bank Holiday Monday as a holiday (the irony of that statement does not escape me). It was not quite as peaceful as I had hoped, as two gardeners were chain-sawing the trees that mark the boundary between me and my nearest neighbour. Years of neglect had led to them overhanging their garden to a dangerous degree, knocking slates off their roof every time the wind blows.
The result is dramatic... as the neighbour put it, it was like asking the barber for a trim and coming home with a buzz cut!
The printed panel came from Bella Stitchery Designs on Etsy.
The painterly background cushion cover was on sale at Asda - and I can't get over how well the two blended together!
I sewed a tiny cameo button onto his braces (suspenders), and added some shiksa mirrors for a bit of 3D bling.
It's for when I need a hug.
