knitting & crochet

bye bye july

The end of July…..well almost but if the next couple of days go by as quickly as the rest of the month, it will be August before we know it.

Not sure how I feel about August, it always seems like it’s all slipping away to the ‘not-so-nice’ bit of the year!

Anyhow I don’t want to dwell too much on that yet!

My garden is full of blooms!!

There have been lots of days out during July….. to gardens…..

and parks…..

alongside canals…..

and to a walled garden…….

to days on the beach……

and misty mountain walks!

Actually the misty mountain walk turned into a downpour and we were soaked to the skin…..and I mean the skin!!

However the weather has mostly been good and we have had some lovely adventures.

There has been some making for my girl during the month too…..a new throw for her room and another little cardigan.

And of course there has been a bit of creature crocheting too!

All these girls will be in my shop this evening at 8pm (BST).

So sadly it’s bye bye July…..you have been lovely!

Thanks as always for taking the time to stop by and read my blog…wishing you all a wonderful August!! 🙂

where did june go to

Well June disappeared very quickly…….didn’t it!

Gone in a flash and July already.

The garden is doing it’s own thing, it’s the time of year where you can mostly just sit back and enjoy it.

And it’s not just enjoying the flowers at the moment either as the strawberries are coming thick and fast.

Home grown, organic, no air miles….and sweet as honey.

We took ourselves off for a little holiday at the beginning of the month as well…to the very beautiful south of France, we had a wonderful time as we always do in this lovely part of the world.

There has been some crafting during June too, with two cardies for my girl!

And of course some little animals too.

This is Provence inspired by my holiday.

Rosette celebrating all the beautiful roses in bloom at the moment.

A little nautical fox called Flare with her own seagull!!

And finally Hollyhocks, unfortunately my own hollyhocks aren’t in bloom yet unlike those on Hollyhocks the hare’s dress.

I will be listing all these girls in my Etsy shop on Wednesday 5th July at 7pm (BST).

So here we are in July, wishing you all a wonderful one.

Thank as always for dropping by!

merry may

Awe isn’t May just the most beautiful, greenest month of the year….I’m so sorry that it’s almost at an end!

The garden has been doing it’s own beautiful thing!

New blooms are appearing all the time.

I could just spend all of my time outside especially in all this lovely weather we have been having.

We had a lovely celebration during the month when our little granddaughter turned one…still hard to believe….we had a fun time partying and Amelie enjoyed every second of it and took it all in!

One of our outings during May was to Garden Show Ireland, such a lovely day out and very inspiring too.

I have just finished a little group of May girls, who I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 28th May at 7pm (BST).

More information about them can be found here and more photos here.

What a lovely month May has been, I really can’t believe we are heading into the 6th month of the year already!!

Thanks as always for dropping by and for the lovely comments you leave….have a wonderful June! 🙂
