Yaaayy Sunshine!

Hi all.

That sunshine has certainly been visiting us this week.  
It has been glorious.
Not everyone's cup of tea I know, but there's a smile on my face.
The children at school have been over the moon, we've been able to use the wonderful school field that we have.
I found these bluebells whilst on lunchtime duty this week.
We've have another visitor to the area as well.  The Olympic Torch has been this way.  I didn't turn  out to see it, but all the children in my class did (it passed through their locality.)  
My bloggy friend, HillyT has written a lovely account of it passing through Stroud, so pop over there if you want to look.

The sunshine has my flowers bursting into bloom.
I love this foxglove, I grew it from seed.
This rose 'Geoff Hamilton' smells divine.
As you can see it is growing through our Clematis Montana which drips off the fence and is getting to the point of needing a good cut back.
 On the knitting front, my sock yarn hat is continuing.  I'm not sure I told you it was reversible.  I cast on provisionally and I'm now making the plain side.  The plainness is getting a bit boring now and I've only done a few centimetres!  I getting very restless with it and to make matters worse I don't know what to start next!  Oh dear.
 I have pulled this felted bag out from under the bed in a bid to do something useful.  I made the bag and flowers about (ahem) 5 years ago but the sewing up fairy didn't seem to come.  Huh!  Every now and then I looked at it and back it went.
Anyhoo all done now.  I sewed in the handles and attached the flowers.  
It is a darker purple than the picture shows, the yarn, Cascade 220 felts like a dream.
 I received my friendship squares....
 ...and the ones I made are ready to send.

So what will the next project be?  Who knows.  Let's hope I settle on something this week.

As always have a great week but there may be rain on the way!

Bye for now...............Clicky Needles.


  1. I'm glad the weather has brought out your pretty flowers :) I also really like your little felted bag! Very cute.

  2. I'm so glad you're having nice weather.. we had some nice days then the rain has begun again.. I want the sun to come back! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Your garden looks beautiful. I used to have a Geoff Hamilton in our garden and the scent was stunning! Am also doing a stocking stitch project at the moment and I'm getting itchy fingers too!!! xxx

  4. Thank you for your kind comments on my recent posts and the link, I really appreciate it.
    I know that projects can get very tedious at times, I'm sure you were wise to have a break from it and finish your bag, which looks gorgeous.

  5. I really enjoyed this post. The hat is very cool, I like the stripes, and I'm sure the solid part will be beautiful when it's done too.
    I keep forgetting the summer olympics are this year, thanks for the reminder :)

  6. Your felted bag is gorgeous! And I love the photos of your garden.
