Summer Living

Hello......... today's post is going to be a bit of a catch up of the Summer living that's been going on here at the Summerhouse over the last few weeks.

There has been girly nights of crochet and cocktails, mocktails for the non drinkers and

frozen cocktails for those who could indulge

Yummy Strawberries to

and making cute little felt ones, this one was made as a gift.

I've been drinking lots of green tea too, not that it's been much help health wise, things have gone from bad to worse and I have yet another week of tests to look forward to this coming week.

but at least the Geraniums have started to flower in the Summerhouse window boxes,we just need this drippy rain to stop now.

 I'm getting there with my little felt birdies with only two more to finish, then it's onto phase two of this make, more on that another day.

I've also been watching the cycling, enjoying the Tour De France a trip round Europe from the comfort of the Sofa, didn't Yorkshire do the UK proud.

While watching I've been hooking up some squares for my Spring Time Throw.

Well that's about it for the goings on here at the Summerhouse thanks for all the lovely comments  and well wishes left on my last couple of posts.

Happy Crafting
Clare xx

    I like everything you've shown us on this pretty post, especially the wee birdies, strawberries and crochet squares - we've been watching 'le tour' and were really impressed with the amount of folks out there egging the cyclists on, not to mention the beautiful scenery of a lot of our old stomping ground: all very nice indeed. Take good care of yourself, xoJoy
