It has been raining or threatening to rain almost every day for several weeks: Most of May and now starting with June. Needless to say, I did not go to the garden this weekend–or even in the week, since it rained almost every evening. Today, I’ve had the lights on all day, it’s been so dark. There are flash flood warnings, where a few months ago we were on the edge of drought.
Still, I kept myself busy this weekend. I got my sorry little self to the gym for the first time in ages. After that, I took a wander through a couple local stores, bought some books, and picked up a table runner that I knew would be too long for my table. But what a lovely thing! I’ve been trying to add some blues back into my decor and this seemed one way to do it and seasonal.
I draped the runner across my table and laughed. It was close to twice the length it should be. So I cut it to length and sewed it up.
Then I cut the remnant into three placemats. That’s not necessarily an Ideal number, but I can see myself using them with the runner. So, while the rain kept me in, I was not idle, though I plan to be later this evening, if reading equates with idleness. I hope you have a good week!
