Garden progress

Well, the patio is looking a bit better stocked now;   I just hope these French beans will look as healthy after the slugs sniff them out!

And here are the tomatoes all bedded in!   The big ones are Alicante, the smaller ones Gardener’s Delight.

Just to end this little horticultural interlude, the wisteria at the front of our house is in full bloom; it smells heavenly.


And to get back to textile content, DH and I went and got a HUGE piece of MDF for my printing table the other day – here it is in my studio.  So now I won’t have to keep pinning and unpinning fabric and moving it along to do the next bit…

Here’s a sneak peek at my reeds hanging no.1.  The stuff on the table above is being auditioned for hanging no. 2.

    “Reeds Hanging” is stunning. And the garden looks like it coming along well. I envy you your big print table — I need a larger surface. It would make things much easier.

    If you don’t mind sharing, how did you do the reeds hanging? I absolutely adore it!
