The Bikini Diet

This is my bikini diet - I have taken to going for a 30 minute walk every evening before dinner - in and effort to loose some weight ( or at least not put on any more) before my holidays. I haven't lost any weight but have been enjoying the summer sunshine and these lovely warm evenings with my trainers and my camera. The poppy fields are starting to fade now .But other flowers are coming in to bloom - like these wild geraniums along the riverside.
Unfortunately the Himalayan balsam is also blooming and taking over our natural riverside habitat.
These geraniums are cultivated and live in my front garden but cost me the huge price of £18 for 2 plants!!
The bikini diet also involves a twice weekly delivery of a Graze box - with the slogan eat more healthy food (fewer biscuits) - they are delivered by to our place of work twice a week so on Tuesdays and Thursdays the downstairs office have a healthy snack to look forward to, to brighten the day.
Today I popped in to see Katie at Make at Allen Mill. As usual she was full of great ideas for recycling - today she showed me how to quickly make these balls of yarn from old T- shirts.
and then weave with them on this peg loom. If you want to know how you'll have to call and see her too at Make .

Hope you've been enjoying the weather too and good luck with your bikini diet.

Happy Quilting xx

The upper Thames had lots of Himalayan Balsam growing by it when we were there a few weeks ago but I couldn't remember its name. Thanks for reminding me!!
