OPOW day two, and a cycle ride!

Day two with Tilly and 91 others OPOW certainly has captured the imagination of the blogging community. I personally have really enjoyed my journey.

Today my little top started life a skirt! A broken zip and waist that was far too small meant refashion time, and I thought it had a little "hello sailor" about it.

A really heavy cotton, almost made the sewing machine needle stick I wondered if it had been treated with something to make it do this?

No Fancy trims today, but this has been the first time I have used stripes and I think I did ok with matching them up.

oh how lucky my best shoes match!!

Then off for a cycle ride. My journals of a novice cyclist have been somewhat lacking, this being only the third ride of the year. Not exactly what I had planned to keep fit and reduce the use of the car.

It is so much easier to look stylish on a bike it the warm weather.

Every good bike ride will have a pub stop and this was no exception, we had two!! MrPB enjoyed lots of cider. I think this is rather a nice shot for the celebrating of hands project.

This was our view for most of the journey home, up hill!

For some all that hard work peddling was too much.
