nice sunny days

These last few days we had sun in a blue sky and it was warm enough
to enjoy the outside (with a cold wind from time to time)
I think we enjoy these warm autumn days so much because we know
it's nearly over ...... and rain, cold and storm might be near.
That's why bumblebee and hoverfly were busy, busy, busy

It's not going very well with the task I set myself, to make a small
quilt for every month of this year. The first four months were OK,
but then too many other projects came by that HAD to be finished first.
Then came Jude's Patchwork Beasts class with loads of work ..........
Here are the last two months I finished May and June and July will be
one of my "beasts" cloth.
( that still leaves September and October .......and ....
I first have to finish a knitting project for a birthday present !
No, I'm not complaining, but sometimes I ask myself .... )

This picture is especially for Jude, it's my Prinsess of the Night
in bloom for the second time. She is a very old stalky lady and blooms
at least twice a year with BIG flowers with a heavy fragrance and
only ONE night !
You see the white dot in the window ? That is the August full moon !
( what a way to celebrate the full moon )
Because this lady is already quite old, I took some cuttings which easily
take root in water, so I will have new baby prinsesses soon.
