My goodness where has this year gone.
We have been melting in this weather and the garden is so dry not much looks happy, but the coleus are thriving!
I will openly admit that I was losing the will to do jobs about the house. Let alone making things. Though I did use the warm weather to wash and dry my fleeces and even get some carding done outside in the shade.
However, today is much cooler and I have been motivated to tackle some outstanding jobs and to warp my loom with this wonderful cream and heather Aran wool.
I sat outside on the swing one afternoon for 15 minutes and took part in the Butterfly Watch. It was wonderful to see them all flitting about. I spotted 40 in total - Whites (large and small) , Red Admirals, Peacocks, Small Tortoiseshells, Holly Blues, Gatekeepers, a Meadow Brown, a Comma and a Brimstone,
