Dishcloth/mug rug swap 2015

Time to show you the goodies I was given

At last my phone is mended and I got some thingy to plug into to increase the really poor internet and network reception I get here so I am one very happy bunny today.  Finally I can show you what I received in the swap

From Kimberley...

Thank you again Kimberley xx

From Melanie
Thank you too

And this is a close up of the bird on the tea cute

I loved ALL my goodies
But the tea towels from both girls are just too pretty to use for boring old washing up
But........ I have a idea !!!!!!
(Will share later when I decide for sure)

For any of you lovely people out there who love swaps Kimberley from Creative Chaosnz is hosting another swap if you want to have a look.

Thank you for the lovely comments you post , I read them all.

Today we are threatened with heavy thunderstorms.  The farmer was up until 11.30 last night gathering the hay.  In fact there were four tractors in the field last night and this morning 
the field looked all done and dusted.

This morning 

Yesterday morning 

This lovely sunshine has been wonderful .
My garden has colour and though I don't grow much the apple trees are showing such promise
And we adore runner beans and they are doing well too and some "free tomato plants " too.
The seeds from tomatoes I must of composted last year obviously 
didn't,t compost down properly in my wormery and so 
Free plants, just hope the heavy forecasted rainfall doesn't,t ruin them 
but the tubs are too heavy to move, fingers crossed.

Runner bean flowers are so pretty too

See you soon
