Where's the summer????????

I've been browsing some lovely blogs this week & you guys are getting beautiful blue skies, sunny gardens & days at the beach, whats going on???? Here in Ireland apart from the odd glimpse of blue the sky has been grey, cloudy & rain has been our lot now for weeks. I should emigrate, but i'm such a home bird, so pray for us poor smooo's over here that the sun will smile on us soon :)

,Any way i stayed busy indoors, had picked some elderflower & made up some cordial

Got two & a half bottles, which will NOT last long, love the stuff, will be making this as long as the flowers are on the trees, its just so refreshing.
Made a new cushion for Bethany, she was feeling under appreciated so some cheering up was needed. When she saw it she said "hey mom, you're just soooo cheesey" but i swear i saw a smile :)



It looks good with her quilt so i got to photograph some of her sketchs in return, i love her drawings, i think she's got real talent


What do you think, i got a fair exchange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also made a long awaited for bag for Ella, as soon as she spotted this fabric she was hooked, so a new bag was requested...............................................


for which i got millions of hugs & kisses, they love to do that at eight. I thought the japanese flower was a nice finishing touch & ellie loves it :) smiles all round, despite the grey sky.
Crochet hardly left my hands this week, i really wanted to finish the bunting, we're at blocking stage


so almost there. Can't wait to hang it, hopefully in my garden :), we'll see!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm refusing to look at the forecasts, i'm just going to have a happy out look, the sun is there we just need those clouds out of the way, easy:)
These roses are not from my garden but i can pretend eh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are lovely , arent they? I do love to have flowers around the house, its definitely worth a few euro every week :)
Well "The Waltons " beckons, famliy night, popcorn, maltesers & relaxation.
You have a sweet evening, thanks for dropping by & do leave a comment, i get such pleasure from reading them
Lots of love

Hello again Karen. What a beautiful cushion and bag you have made for your daughters, just gorgeous. Your bunting it pretty too and fingers crossed you will see the sunshine soon and can hang it out in your garden.
Your daughter certainly does have talent, her sketch is wonderful. Perhaps she inherits that talent from her mum??? :)
Have a lovely weekend,
Anne xx

I love your beautiful cushion and sweet bunting. Yummy! Also, you're not alone, rubbish weather here too. Starts out looking nice, you dress summery then bam, by lunchtime it turns cold and you freeze for the day!

What a pleasure to have found your lovely blog Karen!
Came here via My Rose Valley, another wonderful blog, to whom you gave an award.
Looks like you've had a busy and creative week! Love the cushion and bag you made for your daughters.
Have never made elderflower cordial but I've heard its delicious, and your looks so good there in the pretty bottles - has been on my "to do" list for a few years now, even got as far as pciking them and popping them in the freezer to make later but it never happened!
Your daughter is very talented - beautiful flower design.
Loving your crochet bunting project too - so much happening here!
So glad to have found you!
have a great weekend
Gill
