I just took part in an ATC swap. The theme was "summer" and the most summery I had felt at that point was sitting in the garden with my face in the sun eating ice lollies. I like to do little things that bring back childhood memories and these were my favourite lollies. I used to eat them one layer at a time and make a glorious mess as pink drips appear all over my clothes! The picture below is the Atc I sent for the swap, and the top is a felt and stitches embroidery from the design to bring a little summer cheer when the clouds were hiding the real summer.
It's been a pretty patchy summer here.
There has been a couple of lovely sunny days in between lots of rain and sulky looking cloud promising more showers if I even dare to think about flip flops and pretty skirts.
All those skirts and sandals are going to enjoy the sun soon because
I'm going to Egypt on Saturday!!
I am sooo excited! Its the furthest from home I have ever been, my first time out of Europe in fact. We are off to the Red Sea hoping for our sunshine on a lovely lazy holiday. I'd love to see the pyramids some time but (although I complain about British summers being cloudy!), I think I may wither in the desert heat in August so that will have to wait for another visit. Gaz, the Boyf, has been before and says I have to go snorkelling as the fish and the coral are amazing to see. I am a little squeamish about the sea and the thought of jellyfish makes me feel ill but I may give it a go...
I'll be back in the tiny hours on the 24th and I still have a bit to do get ready.
I've been trying to chose something crafty to take with me. Gaz thinks I'm mad, but I'm not sure I can go a whole week without sewing lol
See you soon!
