Home countryside july days


There have been sunny days…..


…..and rainy days!


There have been away days…..




…..and garden days.









I received a beautiful package during the month from a very lovely blog friend…thank you so much Pat for your kindness, I love it all!


Even though there have been lots of outings during July, I’ve been making too…..a pear for my little princess, from this lovely book,


…..and crocheting squares for a very good cause.


Of course there have been some new animals too!

This is Sandia, as I’m sure you know, her name is Spanish for watermelon.

Fraise Collage

Fraise is a little strawberry-loving fox.

Harriet Collage

This is Harriet the hare, I love the combination of mauve and mustard.

And the final girl of this batch is Petunia, named after the flowers on her dress!

Sandia, Fraise, Harriet and Petunia will all be listed in my Etsy shop on Tuesday 26th July at 9pm (BST).

More information about my animals can be found here.

So July is coming to an end, its been good here with lots of days out and family time.

Thanks as always for taking the time to drop by.

Wishing you all a happy August! 🙂
