The sun makes everything well with the world. I have been having issues with a crochet project, a cotton top for myself, the first one was too small the next size up too big and I didn't make any adjustments so looks awful. Its in a bag ready to be pulled back. In the mean time a change of weather and a change of project.
I loved the geometric design of this cowl and have made a start...
...using the bargain Alpaca yarn I bought some weeks ago. It is a dream to crochet with, this is one that I will be keeping for myself.
Once you get into the rhythm of the eight row pattern it grows quite quickly.
The sun has also done wonders for the garden, we finally have some ripe strawberries. Half a bowl, enough for us to have a sweet treat.
That does mean that it is time to go to the local farm where you can pick your own, our Grandaughter's Lily and Daisy love to go adventuring around the fruit. A wonderful taste of Summer.
The peas are starting to plump up and we are enjoying a handful tossed into our salads.
Finally the lilies have bloomed and are such a vibrant colour they are a delight to see.
We have an abundance of gooseberries so I have been looking for recipes to use them in something a little different.
We are so excited there is apples on our little tree.
Sadly, there is also an abundance of weeds and lawns that are in need of mowing so I will leave you and get on with some garden tasks.
As always thank you for your well wishes for my husband, Gerard and your encouraging comments.
See you soon.
