Hello August

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,
