WOYWW FOR THE LAST TIME IN AUGUST.......

The latest talk is all about the lack of summer this year. I also think there have been a lack of months. Where on earth did the last 8 of them go? I vaguely remember a few days where there was no wind and it was lovely and warm so I crafted outside, but I remember more cold, wet and windy days. The leaves on the sycamores have been turning for nearly 3 weeks, my Russian vine is red and the leaves are falling into the big pond, the blackbirds disappeared ages ago and now the swallow numbers are thinning. The worse bit of all is - I've been making Xmas cards!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm still 'plodding' away at the bead project but it is getting there and looking lovely.
Had to sit at the table for this one so that I could leave it out each day.
My little workspace is empty just now following the massive Ebay sale I did. Nearly half of the items I listed sold. Trouble is, I can't tell where they came from as I had to put the other half back!! I'll have another go probably in October as we are going away in a couple of weeks. I've taken a picture of my space from the other way round this week. Still not much going on though.
Well, another day beckons so after a trip over to Julia's and a few others, I'd better get on with it.

I can't believe how fast this year has gone! I haven't taken my holiday yet (see my blog... oops!) and it's already cold enough to be autumn. Mind, I love autumn.

I'm suprised you're able to keep your punches in their boxes. Every time I buy one it just gets ripped because they never open for me, lol!
