Another week has gone by and while I haven’t completed a whole creative project I feel I have made time to do tasks that could come under the creative banner – it was nice to cross them off my ever expanding List and creativity comes in many different guises after all.

Some months ago I bought a pair of Long Tall Sally trousers in a second hand shop in Bishops Waltham when visiting my Uncle. They were a perfect fit around the waist and hips and a gorgeous navy blue, which made a change from black and grey.

Not being long or tall – or indeed called Sally – they were about six inches too long. This weekend I measured them up against some trousers that are the right length, cut off the excess and hemmed them. Perfect! Why it took me so long to get round to it I don’t know, but it took 45 minutes at the most to do.

Another sewing job was Guide badges onto my daughter’s uniform – I know, I know, she’s supposed to do it herself, but I think we both wanted them on her uniform before she moved onto Senior Section in 2016 or so – and she’ll get plenty of practise doing her camp blanket. I recently splashed out on a magnifier/daylight light and I have to say that it was perfect for working by tonight. No squinty eyeballs after sewing and I got to decide how the badges were positioned. Hurrah!

Finally, I remembered I had a camera on my phone (not a new thing, but I rarely use it) when I came across this broadbean in my minestrone. Had to be captured for posterity obviously.
