August

August is going fine despite temps that are a bit high. It'a 83 degrees Fahrenheit today and humid. The humidity makes the day feel a bit warmer that 83 degrees. However it's fine since when we have super cold days in Winter I wish for days like this.
I did some crochet and attended a wedding! Got PE exams done and now I am on cholesterol meds but it's one way to keep healthy.
Hope to visit your blogs soon to see what you all are doing.

She is growing and loves water and she is taking swimming lessons.

I did some sewing. I am tired of those plastic cover and wanted to see if I could make a cloth one.




This flower was all over the lodge where the wedding took place. If you know the name please let me know. I love it's delicate tiny petals
The shawl is all done. It can be used as a scarf.
Finally all done with a border and all. The pattern is Shawl "Quiraing"  I made a few minor modifications.

This was at the wedding.

Sorry, all you see of my husband is his shadow. Too sunny!!?

Love to see bees.

Made a crochet cap for Ellie and hope to make a pompom to place on top.

May you have a wonderful month of August.

  6. Such summer beauty, Angela. The flowers are gorgeous. The tiny ones look like yarrow.

    Your little cutie is growing up so fast. Enjoy every chance you get to be with her. These days are fleeting.

  9. The plant looks to be a type of yarrow. Not sure. I have only seen white and yellow so far.
    Such beautiful flower pictures. The temp here is supposed to be in lower 80s. Next week 90s again.
    I am going to enjoy this day for sure.
    Your grandchild is so sweet, love that curly hair.
    Have a great Sunday - Betsy

  11. A lovely setting for a wedding. It's interesting to see a ceremony taking place in the open air. I guess you have the sunshine so that something like this can be organised. I like your basin covers - a good idea. Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.
