I love this photo. It has nothing to do with anything, I just love the way it turned out.
I love all the colours together, and the way the cups stack up "just so".
I am looking for happy things to compensate for the weather.
We haven't had a summer yet here in the "Naki".
I really, really need a few days in a row of sunshine.
One swallow does not a summer make. Well all we've had here is the odd blackbird scoffing up the Granny's "pensioner bread" .
And there was the remains of last week's rhubarb crumble too, which may or may not be attractive to swallows.
I wouldn't really know, having not had enough summer to encounter even ONE...
The Granny has been randomly assorting her granny squares and sewing them together.
I have admired the work sufficiently to assume ownership of it I think.
That's mostly how it works round here.
Except for a made to order goat or two.
I really have no idea how the Granny Square is a metaphor for life.
I just made it up because I liked the sound of it.
Am far too pre-occupied with the weather to have that conversation with myself.
Probably something about going round and round, but then the Granny's Granny Squares are so free style and lovingly embellished that you just have to have hope don't you?
So there you are... the metaphor for life shall exist only in the most random of Granny Squares!
I found this gorgeous American magazine on my birthday. Luckily it was on my birthday, as it was so outrageously expensive i really shouldn't have bought it, but i just love it so!
A house is never just a house for me.
