Hello lovely people!
We’ve been back from our summer vacation in the Okanagan Valley for a few days now and things have eased back into the lazy, lovely summer-style schedule. Perfect!
Time away in the valley means many, many dips in the lake and awesome sunsets.
Plenty of delicious samplings :: wine, artisan cheeses and breads. Very yummy!
And, fruit… oh, the fruit!!
Also, we’re big fans of summer oatmeal. Usually, we throw the refrigerated mush in the blender for a breakfast smoothie. However, topping your bowl of overnight oats with a bunch of delicious fruit to eat in the morning, mmm… so good!
So, what crafting have I been upto while we’ve been enduring this heat wave you ask. I’ve got this shawlette going, but absolutely no motivation to play with wool (sticky fingers, eww!) Instead…. my instagram friends would have seen this picture on my feed of a couple mug rugs I pieced together a while ago.
They’ve been finished off with a bit of hand stitching.
And they are perfect for a mid morning snack.
And some lovely company too (The go to choc-chip cookie recipe I use is a winner, everytime!)
What else? I’m trying to learn how to do English Paper Piecing and making these little hexagons is so addicting.
You can do all sorts of things with these little hexies. Have a lovely summer weekend (or winter for my friends in the Southern Hemisphere!)
