Hello......... I know I'm so late with this one, but here are the patchworks for August.
A month full of holidays and crafting and lots of rain, with a ankle disaster at the very end. I crafted on beaches, in cottages at home and in the garden. Lots of old WIP's got a airing, all in all a pretty good month if you ignore the bit at the end.
Out in the garden it's been pretty wet but the Flowers are looking lovely apart from the sweet peas which have been a bit of a disappointment this year, out of 40 plants (two separate lots) I've only had 3 flowers, I've never had trouble growing them before so I'm putting down to the weather.
As for my Seaside Pebble blanket well I've been working away on big cosy over the summer and had a bit of a photo shoot out in the garden a couple of weeks ago. I have to confess things have slowed down a little lately as I've been somewhat distracted by my 'Broken Ankle Blanket'
Here are the colours to get you up to date if you are following along.
101-102 Silver Sparkle
109-110 White Sparkle
As for the Broken Ankle blanket well, you can see why it's such a distraction I'm loving all the colour. The ankle itself is not feeling so great, since it's been in the boot it completely ceased up again and the swelling is back, I'm finding it all so exhausting and my ME/Lyme's is flaring up under the extra physical demands of the boot and crutches.
I'm still experiencing some technical issues here at the Summerhouse, as a AVG update seems to have messed up the laptop, which is really annoying as all the photo's are on it. It's completely the wrong time for it to happen as life is such a struggle already at the moment I can only really get online if I'm out of bed and downstairs where the desktop is grrr which isn't too often
Any road I'll try my best to do a post once a week.
Hope life is treating you kind
