A surprise visit....

It has been an eventful few days here. I thought that I would be on my own over the weekend but, I had a lovely surprise visit from my son and his girlfriend which, was a lot of fun!  I had thought that I wasn't going to see them until the end of August, so it was nice to have them home. They are now back in Liverpool where they are working over the Summer and, I am on my own for a few days until my eldest daughter gets back from a trip away in Switzerland.



Since they left, I managed to finish the next task in my ICQC 107 Class by Kathy Shaw. This task was to add some foxgloves to my garden scene background.  I like the finished result.



This morning I thought that I would just get this post published and then head into my sewing room to work on a few projects.  However, fate thought differently! Just as I was ready to finish up here, a car drove through the back wall of my garden.  It is a bit of a mess....


Now there are a number of phone calls to make and some sorting out to do. Hopefully it won't take too long!

    1. Thank you Brenda! Not really sure how it happened... there was a big bang and then the wall collapsed... I think the lady driving couldn't believe what she had done! Luckily no-one was hurt! :) x

  4. Now why in the world would somebody drive through your wall? Surely they could see it? Glad that nobody was hurt though.

    1. Our house back onto a hospital car park at the back and that is where the wall is. A lady was parking her car and accidently missed the brake and put her foot on the accelerator instead!!

  5. Oh my goodness! Glad no one was hurt. That was a pretty wall too, from what I can see. Did it startle your little dog?
    Your fence with flowers looks so real! You're doing a wonderful job. :)

  9. Oh my--that looks like there will be some heavy lifting in store--good thing no one was near by when it happened. Love your foxgloves--so pretty! I hope your repair job goes smoothly and doesn't intrude too much into your stitching time.
