Yesterday morning the man officially started holidays - his final hand-in complete. Yesterday morning after breakfast and coffee I started to sew...market preparation has begun in earnest. Yesterday it was all about the skirt. Today ... it was all about the library bag. With the door to 'the back room' open, the sun shining and the wee girl dropping in and out to have a dance, a jump on the bed, or a fondle of the fabric - I thought to myself ... life is grand. Grander even still when you come up to the house for lunch and find it accompanied with a vase of freshly picked flowers from our garden.
