And half way through! How did that happen?
June wasn't a very good month, and I am not talking only about the weather!
But as a summer month - a total disaster, wet and cold, at times we even switched the heating on, in June!
A slight improvement arrived with July; at least drier and some sunshine at last, although the wind still comes from the north - cold. Last night the temperature dropped down to 6 C !!!
The drier weather gave me a chance to sort out the summer house and make it comfy again, a retreat from the wind for DH and me, with a cuppa (or glass of wine), a book or some sewing.
There is a quite different view of our little garden from here.
A good place to dry few garden flowers too.
The lavender comes from the lavender bed in our front garden;
some of the plants did not survive last winter, strange, considering how the rest are doing so well.
I had to replant several of them.
"Queen of Sweden" roses like the front of the house.
What else is going in my garden?
No stopping these two!
I had been hand quilting the flying geese quilt,
and now I am stitching on the binding. I like to be at this point; nearly there - time to think about the next project to tackle!
And another block for Quiltmania BOM finished.
I wish you all a wonderful stitching weekend!
