August












We are at the end of yet another month, there has been a birthday my younger daughter Holly turned two. My bigger daughter Rebecca got her GCSE results and I am happy to report she got straight A,s in every subject. She worked so hard at times I was so worried about her health, staying up late studying, cramming revising well it all played off.


We have also enjoyed time together has a family in the garden. It has been unbearably hot at times, which makes a change from the usual summers that we have which are not nearly as hot. It s turned a little milder which suits me fine and a drop of rain to help the garden. 

I have been working in my sketchbooks as you can see from my last post. I have also picked up my knitting needles and am knitting Christmas gifts for friends. I would like to make the dress above all in time for winter. The wool also shown is the yarn I will be using. Which I think would really suit Holly. She is a proper girly, girl and will love it if I can master this pattern, we shall see!!

  5. Beautiful photos - all, Joy. Spectacular and your garden looks so nice despite the heat you've experienced over the summer. Our summer came to an end today as we are now back to rain and Fall season official arrives in a few days.

    I love the dress pattern you are making for Holly. I'm sure it will turn out great. Congratulations to your older daughter too. She did exceptionally well and you must be very proud of her. I hope though that she will also learn to look after herself and her health as this is the time in her life where the habits she develops will carry her through her lifetime.

    Hugs and Happy Birthday to Holly!
