Am really out of the whole blogging routine at the moment - guess it will be like that till life returns to 'normal' in September. Seem to have spent the last week doing housework - got seriously behind when the weather was extremely hot and am not fighting a losing battle with the spiders & dustmonsters.
Have found time to sew together the 24 triangles I've knitted so far;
One side of cushion
Other side of cushion
For a first attempt I am really pleased with how things turned out. The cushion ended up with a custom made pad - I had to hoped to do some clever folding but in the end it was easier to empty the stuffing out and remake the case in the right shape.
My parents called in this afternoon and Mum was rather taken with it - think I shall be starting one for her for Christmas very soon. Arrgghhh the 'C' word - the only downside of making stuff for pressies is you need to start really early. BTW we were shopping at the weekend and passed a cheapie card shop - they had huge 'C' word cards in their window and wrapping paper :(
The weather has continued to be rather unsettled here which nearly scuppered plans for a garden tidy at the weekend. Fortunately Sunday morning was ok so it was all hands on tools to attack the weeds and the rather overgrown borders, grass & veggie patch. Even with all 4 of us working hard there are still bits that need doing another dry day.
An after photo of my little veggie patch - hopefully in a few weeks time we'll be getting lots from here - at least the rain has really mad stuff start growing quicker. (The little tower in the middle normally holds a sprinkler but that has gone away now the weather is wetter).
Has anyone else noticed that the evenings are getting darker earlier already? This year is going by so fast - only a few more weeks and this blog will celebrate its 1st birthday! I need to think how I shall celebrate that ;)
See you soon
