Floral prettiness

 Some of the beautiful flower's growing in our garden at the moment.The one above is a new one this year.
 We have quite a collection of dahlia's in the garden these are just one or two of them.
 Poor old Hamish having a haircut,he really does hate having it done so this time I did it much shorter in the hope it last's a little longer. . . . . . .Oh mummy you should've gone to spec-savers!
 And a little baking this delicious banana and ginger loaf. . . .Mmmm!I borrowed the recipe off my lovely neighbour,who also supplied some over ripe banana's.
And just a little crochet!But I realise looking back through my blog posts that I have forgotten to show you my lovely little Cath Kidston tapestry project now it's finished,plus a small quilting project and a little hooky hanging.Lot's in the pipe line and a few finishes ;-)

Hooky happenings & a finish!

 First of all I'm thrilled to reveal my finished Cath Kidston tapestry jubilee cushion,feeling very satisfied and smug I must say . . . . .although the journey has not been an easy one.As I ran out of the cream colour wool and then my attempt at doing a piping cord edge failed miserably and of course I then mis-judged just how small the cushion turned out and had to make the inner pad two or three times.So it has been a steep learning curve and it will be sometime before I re-visit the piping cord edging again!
 Of course in between my first finish of the summer holidays I actually managed to make a small amount of spiced pickled runner bean chutney . . . . . .Mmmm!I just love this stuff very morish ;-)
 And my hooky happenings you ask?Well the above picture is this gorgeous and easy to make daisy granny square and you can get the pattern over on the blog bunny mummy.
 And second my almost complete stripy crochet blanket,my first ever and hopefully one of many crochet blankets,it just needs a crochet edging when I get time to pop to the wool shop.
And Hamish's little bit of foody creativity!Can you guess what it is???. . . . . . . .
If not it's a spider made from sausage,salami and black pudding ;-)
