Someone got into my garden the other night and managed to break off the top of the fence while climbing over. There were also some plants trampelled down. Luckily nothing was taken and my tomatoes weren't touched, that would have upset me! Talking of tomatoes, the first one is starting to show a blush of red. I began to think that they would stay green for ever.

Here are some completed projects which will be given to charity.
First a couple of Elizabeth Zimmermann February baby jackets, the pink one still awaiting buttons. I also used a different lace pattern for this one, slightly less open.

Then two linen stitch scarves using up scraps of DK yarn.

This Bird table has been lying in pieces for quite a while awaiting assembly. I'm afraid that I don't get along with screw drivers, I'm more at home with knitting needles. However I plucked up my courage this morning and got to work with assorted pieces of wood and screws and this is the result, which so far is standing, for how long I wouldn't like to guess. The Buddleia on the right has outgrown its allotted space, so once the butterfly season is over it is going to have to be removed. This, I think, is a job for professionals
