Nearly September

August is almost over. The colour of the leaves are changing already. Big plans are made every year for my kitchen garden, but we had a very busy summer with lots of different things and little camping trips. So it got a bit neglected. It did provide lots of good meals to the slugs, our two hens and a bunny. I am not complaining. I also managed to make few jars of chutneys, jams and apple pies. Some herbs which bolted also made it to my mantle piece in a little vase. Lots of sunny days have been enjoyed this summer. Little one loves to play outdoors and feed the pets. I had countless number of tea and coffee with just a few rows of knitting. Summer was good. Now is just the right time to hold something warmer in my hand. Something other than my cups of coffee. A crochet hook or knitting needle and some cosy yarn. Yes that's what I felt I wanted to hold in my hand. So I have started a new project. No, I haven't finished my previous Cardigan which I started a while ago, neither Olivia's knitted blanket but I wanted something new. There is nothing like going in the yarn shop and adding some more to my old stash. Olivia asked me to knit her a jumper. Pale, a bit cropped up with long sleeves. So I have a new project. Now I am happy but still have to finish labelling my paintings, as Melbourne Art Festival is not far. I am not panicking at all.
