The heatwave that we have been
I did venture out to block the Spotlight shawl that I eventually got to finish
We have been to help No1 Son with a Gardening project (don't ask! no photos - it was a scorching sweaty day involving digging though solid clay and a hangover (not me) )
And Helping Darling Daughter with another Gardening Project (again no photos - it wasn't a pretty sight )
So this week I have been guiltless in sitting in the shade reading and relaxing, which is fortunate because on Tuesday 6 Chinook helicopters and 3 Pumas (followed by three others, I think Jupiters) flew across the garden. They were on their way for a practice formation of over 100 aircraft for a flypast over Buckingham Palace on Tuesday 10th July to celebrate 100 years of the RAF.
Maybe a trip to London to see this spectacle.....
DD, Sister2 and I all went off to Lamport Hall to try out a mosaic workshop. It was a Gaudi themed workshop but we could choose our own subject matter.

The shawl is done
And as Wool Warehouse have a Sale on Drops Cotton I have purchased a few balls of the
Cotton Light to make the bodices for some Dress a Girl Charity dresses that will hopefully use up some more of my fabric scraps.
