Blue of a different kind...

This time it's blue fabric instead of blue threads! Thought I'd show you what I got up to when I stayed at Sharon's last weekend in Yorkshire. I've started a conversion of Crescent Dreams for the baby that's due in 11 days (& counting!) and am about halfway through so will post a piccie of progress very soon. I couldn't take it with me & let Sharon see it, so I dug out Watergarden for a bit. I worked on the reed bed at the top of the piccie. Once again, apologies for the poor quality scan. Click on the piccie for a better result. By the way, the fabric is Silkweaver's Blue Diamond reflections belfast linen.

The weather has been beautiful here the last week or so. If the temperature was like this all through the summer I would be very happy indeed. I'm not very good in the heat and am dreading the thought of it reaching the upper 30's this summer... I've been doing a spot of gardening and we bought a few perennials to brighten up the border, plus I have a philadelphus that I meant to plant last autumn that is still in its pot & its now looking green and glorious. We probably won't get flowers this year but the green is so lush, I'll be happy with that. :o)

Watergarden looks so nice! :) And our weather hasn't been too shabby either, but I know its going to start getting unbearable hot soon :( I'm sure we'll be up to 100 F in no time and then it'll only get hotter (until around October when it finally starts to cool off).

Well, hope you've had a wonderful weekend. :)

Watergarden looks great! I have it in my stash, but I'm "not allowed" to start it until I finish all my current WIPs. :( Can't wait to see more of yours!!

WG is looking great! I nearly bought the chart for it after seeing it stitched up at Dragonfly Dreams...but I'd already spent more than I should have so I didn't.

The weather's starting to cool down here now, it's only averaging in the low to mid 20s (Celsius) but it hasn't been too scorching this summer anyway...not since we installed the aircon anyway! haha
