In the garden, summer days

It has been a long time since my last post. Life just got in the way and I didn’t seem to find time for my blog. Anyway, I’m back now and I think that the best way to start again is to use photographs to tell you what I have been up to.

 

At the end of May it was Yarn Bombing in Bishop’s Waltham, the town near where I live in the south of England. I was able to help running some knitting and crochet workshop to encourage people to learn a new craft and take part in this lovely community event.

E’ passato molto tempo dal mio ultimo post, a volte la vita e’ cosi’! Non riusciamo a fare tutto quello che vorremmo fare. Pero’ ora eccomi qui! Le foto parleranno per me.

A fine maggio a Bishop’s Waltham, il paese vicino dove vivo in Inghilterra, c’e’ stata una manifestazione chiamata ‘Yarn Bombing’. Yarn Bombing consiste semplicemente nel decorare le strade del paese con cose fatte a maglia. Ho avuto il piacere di aiutare in alcuni workshop organizzati dal comune per insegnare l’arte della maglia e dell’uncinetto e incoraggiare le persone a partecipare a questa simpatica iniziativa.

I spent quite a bit of time out in the garden, I think it looks really pretty in pink!

Ho fatto un po’ di giardinaggio, non sono un’esperta ma sto imparando. Mi piace il giardino con i fiori rosa!

The summer so far has been really nice here in Englad  and it has been wonderful to sit outside and enjoy the garden. I joined a new Block of the Month called ‘Gossip in the Garden’ by Hatched and Patch and I’m really really loving it! Dorry from Quilt it and Dotty sends me every month a little parcel with a beautiful selection of fabric.

L’estate inglese fino ad ora non e’ stata per niente male. E’ cosi’ bello poter stare fuori in giardino. Qualche mese fa mi sono iscritta a un programma mensile chiamato ‘Gossip in the Garden’ di Hatched and Patched. I tessuti, bellissimi mi arrivana dall’Olanda, da Quilt it and Dotty

The Adventure of Sue and Billy is growing too. Lots of tiny and detailed applique but it is very sweet and it brings me back to my childhood.

Le avventure di Sue e Billy crescono e con loro la mia immaginazione, mi sembra di tornare bambina! L’applique’ e’ molto piccolo e dettagliato ma adorabile!

I went for lovely walk some on my own and many with my family and visitors that came to see us.

In questi mesi ho fatto molte passeggiate, alcune da sola, molte con la mia famiglia e con ospiti che sono venuti a trovarci.

Finally, I finished my first shawl and I can’t wait to start a new one…my birthday is coming soon!

Infine ho finito il mio primo scialle e non vedo l’ora di iniziarne un altro…presto sara’ il mio compleanno!
