Hello there and a late welcome to Tuesday.....
I am sitting at the table pictured with the windows open and a beautiful breeze blowing........it's lovely and cool.
Yesterday the rain finally arrived, during Sunday night we had over 30mls, of steady, gentle, quenching rain.
It continued to rain throughout Monday, but the sun did appear and when it did, ooh , it was rather steamy....not nice.
But, today, ah.........breathing a sigh of relief from the heat.
Last night I finished off the flags for my bunting......I was very good and darned in all the ends and gave them a gentle steam press as one or two unruly corners continued to curl up.
Tonight I shall crochet them all together and hang them up.
I had intended to stick with paler colours but couldn't get the mix quite right and when I added some of the brighter shades, whammo ........
It's been hard to stop crocheting these flags they are soooo addictive and a fun project.
I sat in the main street at my favourite cafe drinking coffee and crocheting, much to the amusement of gathered friends!!
Hey you've gotta push the boundaries sometimes, right?.......
My dining table hasn't been this bare/tidy in oh, ......years!!
No.1 said 'it just doesn't look right' and hubby thought he'd come home to the wrong house!!
Gotta love 'em
Stormy skies yesterday......love the inky blue clouds.......
Hoping the rain will come this way......and it did.
Beautiful, cooling, refreshing rain.....
The garden looks renewed today. It had been wilting in the heat and no matter how much you water it, t needs the rain fall to bring it back to life.......
While it rained yesterday, I moved 'stuff' from the dining room table and put it in the spare room.
Yes, that's it above.
No ta dah moment yet.....probably not for quite some time....
Baltic pine (orange) furniture will have to do and you know what I'm over the moon that I have my own space so the furniture, pffft.
Does it really matter?
Not one jot...
I am surprised (ever so slightly) at the amount of 'stuff' I have collected, amassed, found, thrifted..........
I have to find a home for each and every bit, eeek!!
Until it is sorted, or until I can move freely without having to climb over things, I think the sewing thing will be on the back burner.
Crochet will be my craft of choice for the next little while, it's portable and not as messy as the other stuff i 'do'.
I have been drooling over Cecile's crochet at
Oh, the colours she uses and things she makes are wonderful, beautiful little purses, bags, flowers......all sorts of things.
Pop over and have a browse but make yourself a cuppa first and make sure you have a spare hour, you'll need it.
If you've never crocheted before you're going to want to learn after visiting Cecile's blog.
Well, I am off to enjoy this cool weather, maybe I'll do something exciting like the ironing and dream about my next crochet project.
Thanks for popping by, I wish I could package up some blue sky and sunshine for all in the Northern Hemisphere.
Sounds like it's turned rather chilly recently.
Lovely to hear from you and take care,
