The heatwave continued to hamper working with my hands, but sitting outside with a book was just perfect.
5 books read during July
Books 3 & 4 of The Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley.
I'm loving this series and so are many of my friends. The next one - The Moon Sister - is not due out till November.
I caught up with the children's books revisited that are being read over at Needlecraft Haven. June's choice was Anne of Green Gables - a lovely read.
July's was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. It's been lovely to re-read some old classics.
Have you read Rosanna Ley?
Linda has written a great review of Rosanna and her books here. I've read all her books and do enjoy them.
The only craft finish was the baby blanket - shown previously.
A new start, another school cardigan my granddaughter asked for. She says it feels like I am giving her a (hug) at school when she is wearing it. - I love that.
This needs to be finished ready for the new school year. beginning of September.
and of course the WIP one that STILL NEEDS THE FRONT BANDS ADDING ..... this also has to be done for school.
I had a birthday at the end of July as well.
Wool goodies from my family
Lovely cards and parcels from online friends.
Thank you Clare, Christine, Barb, Karan, Kathy, Angi and Gill
Clare stitched me a lovely bookmark and added a little notepad and pen, Christine sent some beautiful wool and Barb, a book written by a local to her lady all about Chessil Beach with wonderful sketches (i'll show you some of the inside next time) ~ Thank you my friends for your kindness. xxx
That wraps up July and we now move into August.
After some much needed rain at the weekend, which did spoil my birthday plans as our picnic to a local beauty spot with the family was cancelled - never mind we had tea/cake and fun at home instead - the hot weather is to return to us again for a while.
Stay safe those of you who live abroad in europe or are travelling there for your vacation as I see you are to have some super high temps.
Thanks for visiting, speak soon
Love and blessings
