Just the purr and bird-like chirps of a frustrated-with-the-weather cat. She keeps climbing up on to me, staring deeply into my eyes and letting me know how disappointed she is in me in not switching off the rain and turning the sun back on ... if only, dear sweet Pepper, if only I could.
Over the weekend the continual rain drove us to do indoor chores and apart from baking the most ExCeLlEnT!- Rhubarb and Lemon curd cake, I've been sewing - not something I usually do. Moss seems pleased with her new bed I've sewn to go into the van - she keeps trying it out for size! Just need to sort out the fastenings then it is done :)
On the crochet front, my third SSSB inspired blanket is now done - also for the van, but at the moment it is being put to good use in the house. But as soon as we can, the blankie, the dog bed and us will get Zeb on the road for some mini-adventures.
I have started a behive-honeycomb lapghan in shades of creams, yellows and grey - which is taking a surprisingly long time to assemble. Each little hexi only takes about three minutes to make and they are a joy to do, but the assembly is a slow process - enjoyable but slow. The plan is once I have completed the crochet part of the lapghan, it will be stitched to a cream fleecy backing to make it all the warmer and snugglier. It was intended to be completed for an early June birthday pressie, but now almost July ... I need to get on somewhat as it has now turned into a 'welcome to your new home' pressie (oops)

Thank you everyone who joined in with this month's Scavenger hunt - a really really good selection of photos and stories, I enjoyed every one!
I have thought long and hard about July's words, they would have to be good to live up to the list for June, so here is hoping that they do.
Shades of green
Starts with .... F
Snapped at this moment
My own choice
This month's are very open to interpretation - for example 'Snapped at this moment' could be anything ranging from a quick snap you take 'right now' to something you took years ago which stands out for you - a wedding photo or a baby's first steps or seconds before some fell into the river!
Remember, these words are more of a suggestion than prescriptive and if you can think 'out of the box' all the better - have fun, be inspired and we will share and show our words and pictures on Friday July 31st.
Have a lovely start to your week - what ever the weather xxxxx
