Summer Flowers and Rain Showers

4 Comments

What a week for unpredictable weather! Although as most summers are like this it might be more accurate to say that the weather is predictably unpredictable! I’ve been crocheting outside when the sun has been shining and crocheting indoors when it’s been raining. To make things easier I’ve re-purposed a wash-bag and filled it with all my crochet and craft essentials so now I’m always ready for any weather eventuality!

In the hope of more good than bad weather this summer, I’ve been sewing some pretty flowery bunting for the garden made out of a few cheap and cheerful shower curtains (and the bunting will match my new crochet bag too. How cool is that!)

Here’s one of the finished lengths.

Hmm, another of those projects temporarily halted by one of my cats taking up residence on top of it. That’s the kind of sour-puss face I’m not messing with. Tigger can stay put for a while, I’ve got some crochet to be getting on with anyway!

I’m still working on the daisy squares and have used some of them to make a cushion cover.

I’m going to make a few more with some of the other squares. It’s kind of nice to have a quick fix project sometimes and they’ll be perfect for when I’m lounging around outside, in between the storms!

The view from my bedroom window says it all about this weeks mixed bag of meteorological horrors and delights!

So, whether the weather be good…

or whether the weather be bad…

or whether the weather be somewhere in the middle…

Here’s to another week of happy hooking and bunting making under stormy and/or sunny skies!

  1. Such lovely squares to make a pretty cushion! 🙂

    I also love the banner, and am totally envious of your new, all-weather crochet bag 🙂

    As for Tigger, he’s got exactly the same expression on his face as my Kushka uses, when she’s fed up of me ignoring her for the crocheting! Lol

    Talking of crocheting, I’m now on the point of making the wheelbarrow to go with my new friend, Sam the Squirrel – I’m making it all from my (quite large) box of yarn left over from my various projects, so the colours are sightly different to your own gorgeous squirrel but, once I’ve finished it, I’ll show you a picture, if you’d like that? 🙂
