After all that sunshine, sewing, and camping in June and July, my August was somewhat blighted by catching a cold during our damp and chilly spell! But still, there were many things to enjoy… My brother coming to visit, and choosing the last really warm day for a picnic at one of my favourite spots near Cader Idris… …luscious blackberries! Which I spent a happy afternoon picking, another happy afternoon baking into muffins and crumble, and then several happy afternoons increasing my waistline even further with the yummy results……finally finishing the Limeade Dress! …deciding to embark upon a HUGE clearout of my flat, and rediscovering some of my old graphic novels and comics from the early 90s that I haven’t looked at in years, like Alan Moore’s ‘D.R. & Quinch‘… …and, lo and behold, the sun came out right at the very end of the month, and so did these beauties on my walkway! looking forward to the ‘mists and mellow fruitfulness’ of September… have a lovely week everyone!
