The view from my living room.  The boys a couple of doors down are trying to build something, but I don't know what.  I'll check back to see how it goes.

It's by Gucci and she doesn't look any better than Mrs Trump.

My Moorfields' appointment lasted all of 10 minutes and I wasn't even given drops.  I have a feeling that I am going to be discharged from that clinic.

Her Majesty always wears something bright so that she is easy to spot.

It such a pretty flower, but I am hopeless and can only recognise the most common flowers and plants.

The UK has a flower for each county, too.



Rosebay willowherb, the London county flower.  Known in the US as fireweed and in Canada as great willowherb.

..... I couldn't look at the article, because its a subscription only page, but it helped me narrow the search.

Kudos to you.  I spent ages looking for the coat, but only found partial images.

Melania was wearing her mum's 1960s curtains to head off for  pilates class!



She's heading straight to the poolside.

@TartanPaint: sorry to learn of the death of your father and had wondered where you were.

I like Michelle Obama's outfit.



I didn't. Mrs Obama is a tall woman, yet looks short and none of the colours matched.

Loved Dr Biden's outfit, although the coat is not a great fit.



Awful.  Wrong colour and the coat should have been a fit and flare.  It would have disguised her apple shape middle and given her some hips.

Read about this on Pattern review.  These are limited run fabrics, so you need to be quick.

One for the dream thread.

Anyhoo, Thursday has come as a surprise since yesterday was entirely lost.  No plans for today.

I'm up if not exactly at 'em.  Happy day @Renegade Sewist.
