Tunisian Crochet

 
These are Tunisian crochet mats/cloths. Fun to make, very easy and very absorbent.

Managed to go down with pneumonia this time - as my daughter said pneumonia in June is ridiculous.

The garden in June

video
 
I am pretty much stuck in bed most of the time at the moment so my husband videoed the garden to show me. (He got the year wrong and meant lilac not wisteria.)

Split ring tatting

 
This is based on a pattern in a French book. I did get rather bored doing all the central section - lots of split rings, but I like geometric patterns so I am happy with the result.

Sorry, I am going down with another chest infection on top of the existing one so may disappear again.

Exibition Calligraphy

Sorry I disappeared again - chest infection this time!
 
This is this year's exhibition piece of Japanese calligraphy my husband just finished.

Sunny

 
This quite ordinary-seeming part of the hall carpet is Sunny's favourite spot for a nap.

Fingerless Mitts

 
A very pretty pair of fingerless mitts that I made for myself in cashmere yarn.

Last autumn's petunias

 
The weather is miserable this week - wet, cold and windy - more like late October than mid-June, and the garden is over a month behind normal. I didn't get to show you these last year - and this year's baskets are not yet flowering.

Tunisian crochet

 
This is just a cotton mopping up cloth, but being done in Tunisian crochet simple stitch makes it thick and absorbent.


Crochet Doily

 
It is decades since I have made a crochet doily so I wasn't sure if I would still have the knack of it. But as you can see it soon came back to me.

And the garden today


After the relentless bad weather of the winter I was afraid the garden would really have suffered, but my husband took this photo of it this morning - with Ginger in attendance, of course!

A Snowy Winter

 
This winter was one when we had much more snow than usual. Every time we thought it was over it started up again.

Cardigan

 
This is my latest knitted cardigan. Pure cashmere and a lovely textured pattern. So comfortable!

Green Shawl

 
I love this green shawl that I knitted in silk/cashmere yarn. It is very fine and light but surprisingly warm.

Last autumn

 
 
This is the view from my window. I love watching the lime trees as they change through the seasons. This was October.


I am back!


 Sorry I disappeared for so long. I have been ill but am now convalescent again.
