It's was a very quiet weekend.
Yet another check up with the Dr and I was advised not to speak for the whole of the weekend to rest the throat area. The joys of this rare disease that no one knows about, all trial and error and wait and see. I did as suggested but it didn't really help. We await their next bright idea!
The sun was shining so I sat in the garden under the umbrella reading for a while and also stitched on Just Nans High Hopes
It grew quite a bit by the end of the afternoon
The squirrel was lifting the lid and eating his nuts in the feeder DH made for him, it was to try and stop him eating the birds food, but it doesn't
There was a variety of birds on one of the feeders, whizzing in and out. The starlings were feeding their babies and so was mamma blue tit. Oh look, there's DH in the greenhouse, I didn't notice that when I took the picture.
My companion wasn't too helpful, not once did he go and make us a cup of tea! - his owner lives next door but he wishes he lived at our home and spends most of his life with us.
Finishing off of the Summer SAL.
I changed the colour of the flowers from the white charted and made them brighter with the pink.
All 4 seasons are free charts from Lynn at Happiness is Cross Stitching.
The back is so sweet.
A little knitting, not a good picture of the red cardigan - why does red not photograph so well?
The flowers along the border I showed last time turned out really well.
All the parts are knitted now, just the sewing up and neckband and button bands to add (the bit I am not keen on)
DH went up to the community garden/allotment on Sunday where he is Chair of the group of volunteers. This week he came home with strawberries and the first potatoes of the season. Nothing beats homegrown foods that you can pick and eat immediately. Plenty more to come as the plot is filling up nicely.
I hope you had a lovely weekend spent with those you love and hold dear.
Love and blessings
