June already !

It's hard to believe it is June already, half way through the year and still lots of things to look forward to. Thismonth we have Father's Day (another trip to our caravan for the weekend), DH and I are going to see Aida for our Anniversary treat and it's nearly big holiday time.

I was quite busy during our week at the caravan, I made 4 of the 32 bracelets needed for the school performance of Joseph and his Technicoloured Dreamcoat. I also made this biscornu for mum's birthday - I'm not keen on blackwork but I really enjoyed making this. Not bad for my first attempt.

Whilst in Wales we visited the RSPB reserve - there were so many birds around; green finches, chaffinches, great tits, coal tits, blue tits, sparrows, nut hatchers, woodpeckers, egrets, swans and herons - and that was just from the visitors centre, we didn't go over to the hides. There were also some very cheeky, friendly squirrels hoping for a few crumbs.
