Too hot? Yes! Still too hot!

It's a joy to look out of the window and see the lightest of rain fall! Mid May was the last time it fell here, and the gardens are parched. We had a heavyish fall overnight, so there is no watering can duty today. Today should have been the last cricket match of the season… Continue reading Too hot? Yes! Still too hot!

This was the moment…

... Working by lamplight isn't easy, especially if you are partly distracted by an interesting tv show. (Let's face it, there aren't many, so this was unusual!)

The penultimate!

It doesn't look much, does it? Wisteria and Storm Blue edged with Gold. It's almost, but not quite, the last square of the Temperature Blanket. I can tell you that today's starts with Lavender in the Centre, and it too will be edged with Gold, but the intervening colour is yet to be determined by… Continue reading The penultimate!
