#1 ♥ sorting out my yarn bag to take to knit n natter on Friday morning and finding a handful of beach treasure sat in the bottom under all the yarn....happy holiday memories.
#2 ♥ knit n natter at the café on Friday was so enjoyable, it was lovely to get together with good friends and to meet some new yarny ladies too. The knit and crochet cakes in the basket are part of a a yarn bomb we're working on for Yarndale, in case you were wondering!
#3 ♥ my back yard is thriving in all the rain we've had lately, it looks lush and green, if a bit drippy. Can you see my passion flower merrily growing along the washing line?
#4 ♥ a new tea towel which I bought to hang on the kitchen door rather than to wipe wet things with. I just love the sentiment as well as that beautiful duck egg blue colour. From Freya Art on Etsy.
#5 ♥ Finishing my third Yarndale banner and loving the look of it. I made white Moogly crochet letters stitched onto rainbow granny squares, using Stylecraft Special DK yarn. Oh, and I got new crocs too, half price in the summer sale :)
#6 ♥ new handmade soap from one of my favourite local shops in town, it really does smell Fragrant and Totally Luscious.
#7 ♥ today I had lots of work to do on my laptop and the Little People have been super good occupying themselves and playing games together. They rearranged the furniture and built two "blanket camper vans" which made me so happy to see!
#8 ♥ playing with my ripple blankets and taking some new photos. I think, there might be a Ta-dah moment coming very, very soon for that gorgeous Coast blanket....tomorrow could be the day!!
#9 ♥ taking a pile of clean laundry up to the Attic and spotting a beautiful rainbow arcing over the town.
#10 ♥ sky gazing, always a pleasure of mine. It's been stormy here today and cold too, I really, really hope that summer comes back to play for just a little bit longer.
I'm really enjoying these gentle summer days spent at home with the Little People, a satisfying balance of work and play, of idleness and busy-ness. Friends call by, we go out to run errands, but mostly we are happy just being here, enjoying life's little pleasures.
