Oh dear, has it really been a month since I posted here?
Charged up the camera and upload pics to see what I had to share with you since last time.
A late birthday gift from a dear friend - afternoon tea at the garden centre, her treat.
The July challenge at NH, quickly stuck into a little frame and given to a cat loving volunteer at the community garden with DH for her birthday.
Two very tiny prem baby cardigans for one of the knitting group ladies to give to a charity she volunteers with.
Ssshhh ..... don't tell DH these are his Christmas pressie socks, now safely put away out of sight ready to be wrapped up and sent to Santa. These have been on the knitting pins for a while and secretly knitting when DH has not been at home.
A lovely gift arrived in the post from our dear June, beautiful threads and holder and some Christmas buttons. Many thanks June for your kindness.
A vintage knitting gauge/counter - gifted to me from one of my knitting group ladies, she works in a charity shop and when it was donated she purchased it as she thought I would like it. She knows I love old items and do use them not just put them in a box for looking at.
My granddaughters school cardigan now being worn for the new school term.
A challenge at the craft group - decorate a small hat - mines the one with the red ribbon and the heart shaped buttons on the right hand side.
and my granddaughters doll looks very pretty wearing it.
My birthday gift from DS (shown in the last post) - I've made a start knitting the lovely scarf he bought me and the wool is sitting in the yarn bowl gifted for my birthday last year from Barb.
and finally DH came home from the community allotment with some goodies they harvested to be given out at the community centre, some of the seniors benefited from these fresh veggies and all for free.
A month of gifts, gifted and received during August.
Love and blessings to you all
