Good morning, everyone. So here we are, a third of the way through September already. Oh, my goodness!!
I'm up very early as I went to bed pretty early too. Yesterday was a very draining day, I thought. BBC weather thinks that today will be equally hot (the filled water bottles are in the fridge already) but tomorrow will be more moderate and Tuesday might see rain round here. We will see.
I got the remaining ironing done early which I was pleased about. Apart from that and some cooking, etc, I spent the rest of the day with blinds closed, as still as possible in front of a fan. It helped a lot, as did opening the door to the attic to give the heat somewhere higher to move to - I think it helps anyway!
Well, I have finished the lap blanket and I'm really very pleased. It's ended up bigger than I intended but that's no problem, and it won't stay on my bed, it will come downstairs to go with the shawl for use on those colder evenings - I know that seems impossibly right now but, believe me, in a month or so . . .
I decided on a scallop edging - it's easy to do and looks fine.
You can see one of the half hexagons and also the quarter hexagon in the second photo.
I'm definitely making more, maybe some cot sized ones, for the Salvation Army to use - they have a drop off point in Morrisons' car park.
A friend posted a photo of some little crocheted pumpkins which are so cute so guess what . . . :-)
Today will be much the same, I expect. I might sit out this morning while it's still fresh and enjoy the sunshine but that won't last long, I think, and then it will be blinds shut and fans on.
What's it like your way?
