I am having a few days off work and am already feeling better. I could feel myself getting slower and slower since my illnesses, so a few days will let me take time to smell the roses as they say; but in this case the last of our spring bulbs, here are the last of my tulips with flowering rosemary from "our paddock"
They go beautifully in my kitchen of green & yellow and they add a little freshness to my sideboard. and bring a beautiful rosemary fragrance to the day.
I want to share with you a few photos of two beautifully embroidered table cloths that belong to an elderly friend of mine they were stitched many! many! years ago by her mother and auntie I think she said some 60/70 years ago.
My friend insisted that I use them at the high tea we had last July and I am just freshening them up before I give them back she was in no hurry for them so I have taken my time touching and feeling them often they are so beautiful, so much more then what these photos offer.
Stunning work aren't they? they must have taken many long evenings by the kero lamp.
Please note also that I have been playing with my blog trying in my simple way to update it and just cannot get it right so forgive me if it looks a little ratty!! I will have to take my time on this one.
Blessings to you all dear blogger friends ~ this is my Tuesday!
