WIP’S & Other things

This weekend was so unbelievably hot it was crazy … but I will be okay!
I had to frog Blache, I just did not like the way it looked using the TLC Cotton Plus so yesterday I ripped it out … and started again with cotton fleece it looks WAY better now – see:

At the beginning of spring I bought some hydrangea’s and even though they (if you have the correct soil) are blue mine is a very pretty pink and green … I did give it some “acidy” food so I am hopeful that it will turn blue!

just for fun I wanted to post the first 9 rows of my mid july KAL … because you really can’t tell anything from this … wonder what it will look like in a few days???

And finally dd (6) has been asking and asking to teach her how to

one more picture for you … look how big my kittens have gotten …

Well I can’t seem to upload this picture so I will try later!
