A couple of weeks ago we went to a party to celebrate the 40th and 50th birthdays of some friends. I made this table runner for them out of silk. It looks terrific, but it was a difficult fabric to work with as it frayed such a lot. And now Christopher has asked me to make another one for some other friends who are getting married.
This is a knitting needle bag I made for my sister in law who has a birthday in a couple of week's time.
Have you spotted the dried brown leaves on the table? We're not yet into August and already some of the leaves are turning and starting to fall. I imagine that's because of the really dry spring that we had. I hope that still some weather to come before the autumn really sets in.
