Purple is the chosen colour this month for all of those who like to stitch along with Angela in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I machine appliqued three little purple birds – just about all I could manage sitting at the sewing machine as my back was feeling little sore by the time I had completed them. It was much easier on my back to finish the birdies off, sitting in my Lazy Boy chair while I hand stitched their little stick thin legs on. So here they are, with their little red friends. I’d stitched the red ones last month but hadn't blogged about them.

We went down to the Health Centre today for our first Covid jab, joining a steady stream of over 65s. No trouble at all, it was done very efficiently, and we hardly felt a thing. Like all vaccinations, we had to sit and wait a while to make sure there were no side effects. Our second dose will be in three weeks time.
