Knowing that my time is limited before hanging up the tools and the materials for the school holidays, I've been focussing on simplicity. Actually, I've been working on a pattern which, when done, will be simple enough too but for now, I'm taking the time to get right.

So, in my window of opportunity, I got together vintage glass and vintage fabric. Greens, reds, blues.

And florals.

Talking of greens and reds, what do you think of these strawbs brought back from the farmers' market last weekend? We were told that spray free = insects walking over growing fruit = grooves. The mind boggles.

Has anyone got any decent weather out there? The radio presenter says the country will have a month's worth of rain over the course of this weekend, although probably not here in London. That's the best we can hope for, it is Summer after all!

Mind you, tomorrow afternoon we shall all be glued to the TV screen .. go Murray, go Murray ..
