Beautiful weekend, beautiful week coming up!

What a glorious weather we are having!

Roses and lavenders (not yet fully out) in our front garden are loving it.

I have been working on the "Hygge"  shawl over the weekend and I now I have only the one edge to finish.
I will have to decide on a fabric for the lining soon.

This weekend baking was probably my favourite summer cake,
not ony because it is quick and easy, but it also brings back memories of childhood.

"Bublanina" in Czech, "bubble cake" in rough translation, and traditionally made with cherries.
In fact, it can be made with any summer fruit, providing it is not too wet. I have made it with blueberries before, but I prefer fresh apricots, now in the shops.

A small envelope arrived in the post from  Tambani Embroidery Project , (about which I have written on several occasions before, for instance here ), 
a present to say "thank you" for my support.
Thank you, Ina!

May be it will find its way onto my blue summer "play cloth", 
or I will think of a project on its own for it. 

And now back to the garden, it would be a shame to miss all that sunshine!
