My hopes for a decent summer are diminishing by the day, but I am trying to make most of the odd couple of hours of sunshine here and there. We had a lot of rain this week, with very few sunny spells; even today, after waking up to rain (again), the sun is trying to come through, but the wind is chilly..
I managed some sewing time outside last weekend, to do little bit more on my blue cloth.
my bits of EPP transformed into 4 stars,
2 stitched on already, with some old beads from my stash,
and 2 more stars yet to be appliqued
And what is going on here?
Do you remember my green hexies a couple of posts back?
Well, the idea came from here,
but I want to do something more with the center panel; I have some ideas....
Despite the horrid summer, our fig, planted 3 years ago to cover a garage wall (and has done just that), is doing very well.
As we don't particularly like eating them as they are; the figs which grow in our climate have very bland taste.
I tried to use them to make some jam, and I thought a combination with apricots would be quite nice, adding lots of lemon juice.
The result was OK, but just that, not very exiting.
Will have to do some more research 😒.
