I must be drawn to the colour purple as I noticed that I chose a purple flower for my last blog entry as well.
I was determined to blog before we reached the end of June, the months surely do fly by these days. It doesn’t feel like summer here in Scotland as June has been a very cold month with temperatures averaging around thirteen degrees.
This has meant that everything in the garden is much later in blooming this year – we’ve even got magnolias out just now and our roses are just making an appearance.
I found this little fellow in the house recently and I noticed that instead of spots it had stripes – it is in fact a striped ladybird.
I’ve not stitched at all this last month, the mood just hasn’t taken me but I can feel myself being drawn back to it again – I don’t know why I am going round in this circle at the moment.
I did, however, buy myself a new sewing box which I’m enjoying immensely. It’s proved to be a good choice which I can’t always say about my accessory choices.
I’ve still been knitting some bits and pieces and finished this little fellow last night. I think my son has laid claim already.
I’m currently knitting a different style of monkey from the last one I knitted and a little doll. I would really like to knit a neat little frog but it’s hard to find a workable pattern that I like. I started a few but have given up as they’re not what I want.
I’ll finish today with the photos that relate to the blog title – “mission accomplished” – since Poppy joined our family she has desperately wanted to join Brandy on his bed. From day one, he has refused to allow this to happen and will growl at her to let her know that she’s not welcome…………..
As you can see, he finally relented and let her join him for around ten minutes one evening recently. I have a feeling it was a moment of weakness that won’t happen again!
Thanks for stopping by today, I’m off to enjoy some Wimbledon. Take care wherever you are.
