It must be winter

Today has been the most horrible, terribly wet and windy winters day...


...but I saved the orchids before the rain, the wind (or the ants) got to them.


I will just bunk down  in front of the fire with some needle work (in two words, cause I am not actually stitching, but it is needle related so that kind of counts).

Hope the outside is more pleasant where you are.

  1. For a wonder, it actually *is* nice here and we've been enjoying a heatwave for a week already! No let up in sight either, with 34C forecast for Tuesday. Whew! Not bad for Britain!! I can finally get out all the summer clothes that I used to wear all the time when I was studying Chinese in Taiwan back in 2009/10 and wear them here!=)

    Having said that, it feels rather too hot to stitch, but I'm trying a bit here and there. I've got my fancy sampler back in progress and have some better shots of a Helen M Stevens' piece I did 5 years ago scheduled to show on Saturday. Hope you'll come and look.=)

    Greetings from the UK.=)

    1. I don't mind the cooler weather, really - it is the wind that drives me crazy. Enjoy the summer weather.

  2. Aqui, em Minas Gerais no Brasil é inverno o que quer dizer muita seca, noites e manhãs em torno de 14º . Um friozinho bem gostoso!
    Lindas orquídeas. As minhas (dendróbios) estão cheias de botões, devem florir no início de setembro.
    Um abraço!

    1. Tonight is really cold - down to 2º. We might have frost on the lawn in the morning :-)

  3. Oh Anna, I would take your weather over ours right now any day. Recently I have been so nostalgic for the grey foggy days of my time in San Francisco. There's no better excuse to stay inside and sew!

    1. Monica, you are right about the excuse for staying inside. Hope you get some cosy fog soon.
