Here in our part of the world, Summer starts on Monday. In our southern part of the country we have not been hit with the early hot temperatures those further north are experiencing.
As a result the garden is growing well and the grass is still green. It is even cool enough at night to still have a blanket.
This is what is happening in my garden.
As a result I am making my third batch of jam. I am finding that we are able to pick a kilogram every second or third day. So why not turn some of it into jam.
I breathed a big sigh of relief when I posted this parcel today for our FHFS group.
I had bee quite concerned about making the deadline, but thankfully it all worked out.
This is a sneak peek at what I played with that eventually went inside one of the packages.
Now that one deadline is out of the way, I need to catch up on a lot more Christmas sewing.
In the meantime, I have found other distractions. I have a friend who is very talented when it comes to anything to do with paper. I enjoy going to some of her classes.
Last week we made this lovely fold out book.
All the papers used in the pages and on the cover are handmade.
A little bit of decoration was added.
It is made with concertina fold pages.
There are too many lovely distractions waiting to be made. The only solution is to live to 110 – at least!
Have a lovely weekend. I am planning to enjoy the sunshine in the garden.
Hope you have a great one planned, too.
