Gah! What is it with this weather!? Was that it, have we really had our summer!? It is so miserable out there lately, the rain is relentless and it's so cold too. I'm starting to feel a wee bit sorry for all the tourists and festival folk that have come to Edinburgh this year. Of course they don't come here for the weather, but I doubt any of them would be expecting this monsoon!!! Anyhoo, I thought I would add a wee bit of colour to the day and show you a few of my latest ladies...
With all the flower garlands
I've been a crocheting lately I've had enough oddments of yarn left over to make up a couple of these lovely Penny garlands
and have popped them onto my wee shop shelves here
I've also been making lots of these tiny wee granny cushions
, aka pincushions, but if you blinked you might have missed a few of them. They have been in and out of the shop in a flash which makes me so happy! A huge thank you to every one who has given one of these wee ladies a forever home and for your custom orders too! There are still a couple available
and I am working on some lovely new ones just now, they should be popping up soon so keep a wee sneaky eye out for them!
On another note, I guess you have all seen and heard about the violent riots
in this country!? It is nothing more than mindless thuggish violence and some of the pictures
we've seen are just so unbelievably appalling! My thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected. Thankfully we haven't seen any such incidents here but I shudder a little when I hear a siren wail down the street. The police and government seem to be doing the best they can with their resources and the local residents affected have shown such resilience and strength
that it restores your faith in people. I can't imagine anything other than a messy end to this situation but I do hope it comes to an end sooner rather than later.
