Rags to Rucksack

Back at the beginning of June, I blogged about some old curtains I had come across

Well, this is what I made.


And I added a little embroidery detail onto the bird.

I goes everywhere with me now.

Competition entries

For the first time I plucked up courage to enter some of my handicrafts in the local Agricultural Show. And i picked up 2nd prize for a crocheted article. I'm well chuffed. It's from a vintage pattern. I made the Bon Bon dish  last year.  Here is the link to that previous blog

I also entered:-

A pincushion

A cross stitch hanging

Jessie mouse

And a crocheted cushion

It was great fun and I think I will enter next year too.

Some mornings make you smile

Not at work until 10 am today, had time to sit in the garden. Working hard, not having had time to stop and look around much lately and look what's happened

Lilies in bloom

See how much the courgettes have grown.


And some of the shoreline collection from my Scottish holiday.

Feeling hot, hot, hot

What lovely weather we are having at the mo.

The bees are busy on the borage.

Flowers at last on the courgette plants.

Jumper finished and ready for the cooler days.

Need to find another project..... Or should I just take it easy?
