Hello all, it’s been a while!
I’ve had to take a little blogging break because my dear mum has been in hospital with a mystery lurgy. She’s still there now and getting very bored while the lovely doctors and nurses figure out quite what to do with her – she’s a medical mystery! Get well soon mum!
Anyway on the crochet front I’ve had a little pause too – still no eyes or beaks on my owls and the red white and blue blanket that I’ve been working on is not going too well either. Here is the beginning of it …
I tried to like it, I really did. But, no I was not successful. So my brain got to thinking. Here is how it went … ‘I wonder if one colour spots would look better?’ …. ‘It could have a white border?’ … ‘Hmmm I wonder if my gorgeous sister-in-law would mind if I added a few colours to it?’ …. ‘Green maybe purple’ … So I duly contacted sis-in-law and, lovely as she is, she said yes! So here are my dotty spots.
You can just about see the white borders poking out. The colours haven’t come out quite as they are in reality – the yellow is really a lot nicer than that – promise! Anyway I think that I like them a lot more than the blue,red monstrosities that I started with.
It was summer solstice at the weekend and so I lit a candle and celebrated the longest day if the year. I like to mark the passing of the year and mark the equinoxes. Even if it is just lighting a candle just for me. Then came the most glorious full supermoon – this was taken from my garden at about eleven at night – so bright! My camera had a devil of a time getting that shot, many were deleted!
I wandered around my garden today, it has been beautiful here. No wind (for the first time in ages) and lovely lovely sunshine all day. At the bottom of my garden are these gorgeous strawberry plants.
I’ve had them years and they come back year after year, although they never produce enough for a fruit salad they are just ripe for plucking and eating right there and then… which is exactly what Little Miss H and I did with this beauty. It almost looks plastic it is so shiny. The most perfect gift to end our day.
And here it is grasped by Little Miss H and having been
decimated enjoyed by us! Yum Yum.
Until next time I hope you’ve enjoyed your day and are joining me in counting blessings!
