It's already a beautiful day here in the garden of England, although sadly I will be stuck to my pc all morning, bashing out an essay which is due in by lunchtime - arghhhhh!!! Before I hit the books, I wanted to show you this beautiful piece of embroidery that I found in a charity shop a few weeks ago. It was rather shrouded in a tatty old frame with dirty glass, but underneath was revealed this charming piece of vintage embroidery. This quintessential English cottage garden scene is my favourite kind of garden; just out of view, a group of ladies are sitting drinking
champagne tea and eating fat wedges of victoria sponge cake that is oozing with cream and fresh strawberries. sighs.
At some point I will get it reframed and hung up in my
pit-of-vintage-tat dining room. Of course, my garden doesn't actually look like this, although it is rather lovely in it's own way and full of birds and bees and Miss Looloo sunbathing on the lawn.
Right-o, enough of this displacement activity, I'm putting on my essay writing hat and nailing this bitch!
