On our day off last week, we were lucky with the weather, so after the chores were done we were back on our bikes. We cycled to Woking town centre, and stopped to look for our first Geocache around the WWF building. We made our way back, and found 3 more, but they were harder to find so we saved the others for another time, and cycled the rest of the route back...
I have continued working on my orange blooms this week
As I have so much blocking to do, and a towel really wasn't ideal, I sourced a set of foam mats, although technically play mats, they seem to be a popular, affordable option.
They have worked so well. The pins pop in so easily and stay in too!
The flowers are coming together. All the orange petals are made so i'm just adding the red edging and joining as I go and then blocking each flower
I'm thinking about writing out a pattern for this one, but as I haven't written a pattern for someone else to understand, I think I may need to do a bit of research first!
The weather has been quite erratic this week. From bright blue skies to deep, dark heavy rain clouds, but whichever we've had it's been very humid
Our flat is pretty hot, so when it gets too much, we have a lovely lake we can visit. just down the road
I never tire of this view, and a lap of the lake is a perfect stroll in the sun
We did have a sneak treat this time !!
