the weather has settled to what they call "normal for the time of year", mostly quite pleasant.
Which means some quality stitching time in the garden.
This week I made another (no 13) block for Quiltmania BOM quilt,
and finished sections 7 & 8 (out of 18) of Bohemian Rhapsody wrap.
For those new to my blog, this is a crochet design by Mary Lena Lynx, for Renaissance Dyeing, using their Merino Lace yarn in 75 shades and no 3mm crochet hook - yes, a long job.
The garden is looking great now, with sunshine and the odd rain, it has managed to catch up.
Even the figs are growing.
This is where DH and I are spending lots of our time.
When it was too warm for stitching, I was doing some reading, and the one book I really would like to recommend, is this one, All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr.
It is a beautiful story, so well written, I just could not put it down.
Shane wrote about it on her blog earlier this year; thank you Shane, for the tip.
The author is new to me, but I like his style of writing, and
found a couple more secondhand books by him.
I look forward to reading them.
Do you remember our new garden acquisition earlir this year, a selection of violas?
They have come on beautifully, quite a show.
They are so pretty and some of them have a lovely scent too.
Have a wonderful week!
