"Sewing is a fishy business, and I have our first Goji Berry."
I have three things on the go at the moment. I found this rather cute fish fabric in the stash. Isn't it nice and bright.
Doing three things at once certainly keeps you on your toes, or does it just make for three un-finished projects! I hope not.
The crochet doily is about half way finished. Using a size 1.5mm hook and Coats crochet cotton in size 10. The pattern is called Starry Night which is from a Crochet Monthly magazine. The other project I am working on is the stitchery that is underneath everything in the photo. I have incorporated two Block of the Month designs from a few years ago into one project. You know how it is we all get excited about a free Block of the Month from the Internet then it all goes haywire a few months later and we lose interest. This is why I don't join in these anymore.
Thankfully we can say it is now Autumn, though today is going to be 35. With the hot Summer lots of things didn't survive in the garden. The tomatoes did no good at all. I picked some potatoes on Friday that had died down and put these straight into some soup I made that morning. Yesterday I was delighted to see the Goji Berry bush which had flowered was producing some berries. These are very tiny and there seem to be a few more coming on. I haven't eaten any yet so it will be a first for me. I have only eaten these dried from a packet. Apparently they are quite good for you.
