Nature inspires me

Today I have set aside a little time to share photos I have taken this week on our evenings out to escape the heat. My first photo is actually of one of my current knitting projects, the lace weight top called Adelaide. This

Blogging along four years

This time of year we have family birthdays, well all three of us. We don't have parties (dad and me) with cakes or ice creams but my sister will no doubt have a party for her birthday with her family and they will eat a lot of cake!

Sleeveless dresses, sunhat, sunglasses and don't forget the suncream. Is this Northern Ireland, were we love to talk about the weather, normally cold but refreshing with day after day of rain, after all this is why we have so much green. Are we the only two who long for those days when we can listen to the blackbird singing after a shower and smell the freshness around us after a summer of rain.

I have some fun to share today especially as it is Father's Day and my friends will know how much dad means to me and how much fun and supportive he is to me. My knitting friends will know dad as my knitwear photographer and the fun we have when we go out
