Hot Stuff

It’s going to be another hot day today, so I’ve closed the house up and done my tidying nice and early.  I get to spend time in the sewing room today!

I’ve been inspired by other posts around the web about doing ten minutes of sewing a day, and have managed to start a new project (silly me!)

Not the world’s best photo but you can see where I am going with it.  I’m hoping my star centres won’t be quite so white when I stitch them together.  But it is what it is.

Being summer, our fruit trees are going gangbusters.  This is our nectarine tree.

Yes, all lovely in size but what you can’t see from that photo is this:

Poor little tree is heaving with fruit.  A lot of them are being picked today as my aunt is going to dry them for me (bless her), but I felt the need to share those photos with you.  Just to brag a little!

Summer, whilst hot and horrible weather wise, gives us the best summer fruits, and I always feel a profound sense of guilt when I can’t make use of every last piece.  So drying is the logical choice.

I’ll show you the finished result when I can.

See you soon!


  1. Lovely to see the tree being so productive.
    Hope you had your sewing time, too.

  2. Be organised and get your 10 mins in...... It all adds up and things will get finished.....

    1. You were my inspiration! Sadly I've yet to do some today but I am hopeful!
