The Monarchs are migrating.
I spent another hour digging in the new border Sunday but it was in the sun and hot, so after lunch I took a book and went to the hammock for a read.¬† I’m reading “Kingdom By The Sea” by Paul Theroux.
I have been really looking forward to it because I so enjoyed my visit to England and Wales, but he is not interested in the least in old churches and castles and does in fact seem to focus on the negatives in a very pessimistic way and one wonders why he bothers to travel at all, as he certainly does not seem to enjoy it!
Me – I LOVED seeing the castles! I wish I could remember which was which!
One of the trees that shades my hammock has lost all but a few leaves so when I started I had nice dappled shade, filled with the migrating butterflies. I soon dozed off but the sun shifted enough to blast me awake with brightness and heat. I went inside and spent the remainder of the afternoon folding and packaging POPPY!.
Saturday I taught a Machine Quilting class at a quilt shop about an hour away. There were only 5 students but that was all that would fit in there so we had a cozy full class!¬† Everyone did so well and seemed to have a good time and I got to buy some more batiks! Unfortunately I have not been able to find YLI Invisible Thread anywhere around here so I guess I will have to order some so I can get back to quilting the poppy sample.
