The last half of July has been quiet,
it has been a forced rest :
hardly any work has come out of my hands.
Pain high up in my back makes it hard to do any
felting, stitching, knitting, crochet ...
even cooking ..... (but Man is a great help !!!)
I have had backache before,
but most probably it was triggered this time
by all the heavy watering cans that brought my garden relief
in the HOT SUMMER DAYS !
(It's really too hot and too dry over here)
So the new necklace I had started earlier
is progressing V E R Y s..l..o..w..l..y
Even sitting in a straight-back chair
I have to stop after one or two stitched beads ...
Still need to make a closure.
Though it was most of the time too
to come outside,
the garden was lovely in the morning these last few days.
Counting butterflies for the "Vlinderstichting"
for ten days, so they know in the end
a bit more, which butterflies go where ...
I was lucky :
a Swallowtail (Koninginnepage)
in our garden, a rare visitor !
(and I lucky, catching it like this !)
Despite the heat,
daughter has been very busy at her sewing machine !
the suit for Hiccup the Dragon rider
is nearly finished !
(and a little trolley bag will be transformed
into "Toothless" )
YES, she's góód !
