After a beautiful spring day (almost 30c - nice and warm) with plenty of sunshine and my great neice and nephew over for a few hours, which meant a picnic next to the pool (no photos of that because I was too idle to fetch my camera after balancing home-made lime cordial, crisps, sultanas and boiled eggs, courtesy of my girls, outside on a tray, with a blue cup for Stella and a green one for Cam and which lasted all of 5 minutes because Ben 10 was on the telly so we had to go back inside :0)) - anyway I digress - I'm now in front of the pc and listening to a magnificent storm - big rain, thunder (Buster is going nuts!), lightning and strong winds - I love electrical storms - we have some crackers here, and I remember sensational storms in Berlin when we lived there when I was a kid - you could literally lean against the wind and it'd hold you up - well, until it changed direction then you'd fall on your backside, much to the delight of so-called friends.

Oooooh - another big thunder roll - it's quite possible we'll lose power tonight so I'd best hurry with this post.

After Cam and Stella went home, I got stuck into my 2 blocks for this month's do. Good stitches for the Cherish circle - Kristy painstakingly cut out templates for us all and sent individual instructions - I got to do the bluebird and the horse - and they turned out really well - there's a few more on Flickr which you should go and have a look at....

Hope these are ok Kristy......
