The Last Day of The Holiday Tomorrow.

The last day of the holiday tomorrow.
The last 6 weeks seem to have gone on forever.
I've managed to do some knitting, crochet and gardening but more importantly spend some lovely times with my family.
DS is ready for Secondary School and DD is not so ready for GCSEs!
The Garter Stitch Swingy Cardi is coming along nicely, although first attempt was too big before the split for the body so I took it back and made it smaller.
This looks much better. The colour is much richer purple than this picture looks.
Mr Clicky Needles and me have been working on the postie step.
He cut the timber and I screwed it together. We now need to get some gravel and plant down the sides to finish off.
The garden is looking most autumnal with the Japanese Anemones looking really pretty, but they always make me a bit sad because summer has nearly gone when they are in bloom.
Other signs of summer ending ~ Crocosmia
autumn flowering Cyclamen
and a sad looking Hosta who has felt the drop in temperature already.
On the plus side, remember that blossom? It's turned into these Worcester Apples and they look (and smell) good enough to eat, although they're a bit bitter at the moment.
So alarm set early tomorrow (just to get back into the swing of things) my last Tuesday morning knitting group at my local yarn shop for a while, and then back to work Wednesday.
I've had a wonderful time.
Bye ~ have a good week. Clicky Needles.
