Catching up on July's pages

I was away on holiday on 25th July - all the family down to Keswick for lots of games and books and fun.. think Gran might be getting fed up getting snapped though! So guess I should be thinking about getting August's piccies printed out and organised.

25th again

It comes by so quickly - I haven't actually quite done July's page yet. Yesterday was an at home day, a get organised and do some work and I've got a headache day. It started out very wet, got a bit sunny and then back downhill again. I took a few piccies with my camera phone, not always so good though... It was nice to sit in the wee bit of sun in my tidy craft chair corner though!

More fun with felt...

This started out life as the pea green boat for the owl and the pussycat, but I kind of got carried away, and they preferred sitting out on the windowsill rather than being in a boat, so it became a fancy bowl thing. I used some wet felting to get rid of the fuzzy sticking out bits at the back, then reshaped and needled again - all just experimenting really, but fun. I tried to do another one and it came out very differently - this became a birthday gift for my sister. And this just wanted to be a penguin....

Well it does kind of feel that summer's over, so here's a few snaps from my hols in July. Sand castle on the beach, the Roman baths at Chester fort, patterns in the stonework at the Lindisfarne Priory, the doorway at Alnwick Castle, and the embroidery I did this summer!
