I have nearly completed my latest EPP project as I have spent every afternoon and evening watching the tennis at Wimbledon. Last year we were lucky enough to win two tickets in the draw for Centre Court on semi-finals day and this was like a dream come true for me -this is me outside Centre Court. I played tennis until my early 30's -until I had the children and have been a fan all my life. To go to Wimbledon and see it live was so exciting so I met up with my son who lives and works in London and we had a great day out. We had lovely hot weather - not like the rain this year. It is much smaller than it appears on TV and more compact but the atmosphere is fantastic. I plan to try for tickets again next year so that we can go again.
On Henman Hill
So I have had to be content with watching it on TV - but there has been superb coverage including two long matches until 11pm at night!!
So lots of hand work and even some knitting. But a new toy is my lint brush which I have just got- I have had to buy a new a vacuum cleaner after only 15 months and I think it is due to all the threads which get wrapped around the sweeper brushes so this useful little gadget will pick up all the threads before I hoover the carpet. It seems to be great so far!
I think this might make a good quilt to send to Julie from Having Quilting Fun in Colorado for the appeal to help victims of the dreadful fires which have left people homeless in the USA. I need to get it finshed and sent off as soon as I can.
Back to the tennis - love all!!!!
