It is extremely hard to believe that we are half way through August, I am convinced that a week is much shorter now than it used to be!!
It is also extremely hard to believe that despite the title of this post that it is actually summer, certainly up here in the northern parts of the UK there has been a distinct lack of sunshine.
The garden has suffered as a result of the poor weather, my tomatoes are plentiful but still green and the rain has only encouraged more slugs and snails who have helped themselves to quite a lot of things including all my courgettes!
This is my first sweet pea and it only bloomed last week and I’m still waiting on my pink cosmos!!
Despite the weather we have still tried to get out and about and we enjoyed a lovely trip to the seaside to watch an air display.
Making so far this month has included a crocheted blanket for a new baby girl…..
…..and the beginnings of a new cardi for my little princess.
My animals this month include Bay the little blue bear, who is a seaside, sailing sort of girl.
A little red and white check girl called Gingham.
Eglantina whose name means ‘wild rose’.
And finally Thistle!
All four of these girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Monday 15th August at 9pm (BST).
More information about them can be found here.
