Stitching ahead

 I have done some more on Sweet Flowers, the new pattern is not out, but I have reversed the left hand border and got myself ahead. Last night watching the cycling in the velodrome, I unpicked the pink flowers 3 times before I got it right. I have not touched Tree of life to much counting, which whilst the sport is on is not good news.
 Sunday and Monday I did a bit of Dolly knitting, or French knitting, I used all the remaining ball of wool, it's not yet fully stitched together, but it does make a nice place mat. Not sure if I will use it or even maybe hang it on my office wall, it sure is pretty.
 Saturday we had Josh for the day, and for his treat he wanted to go to Porchester Castle, so we took him inside the keep, Josh had another very good end of year school report.
 He never kept still, even when we got to the top of the tower, he was still full of beans, loads of smiles and laughter. He loved all the hiding places, waiting until we got close and off he went again, there were few people inside so it felt very special, just the three of us.
 I love these castle walls, and have far to many shots for here. We took loads from the top of the tower, of the area with stunning shots of the water, we are so lucky to be so close to so many beautiful places.
Hubby and I are now feeling much better, work is good, which is pleasing. So now it's back to the TV, as with the rest of Great Briton, I am caught in the summer of sport. London and the Olympic village looks stunning, our sailors, cyclist and other athletes have made us very proud.

I have started another project, but I will tell you more soon, it's very time consuming, but rewarding, something completely new and exciting.there got you thinking.


  1. When does Josh'a shool year end and when does it begin?
