in the summertime ....

Even though summer didn't officially start until June 21 we've been enjoying summer activities and going back and forth to the cabin since May.  But I haven't entirely goofed off .....


Over the winter I tore up linens and t-shirts to make balls of 'yarn' for this rag rug ... I expected it to be my summer project but it worked up rather quickly.
 



I cross stitched a card for a friend - the envelope is lined with paper rather than fabric this time ... I was being lazy short of time.  It's Lucie Heaton's June Fairy.



These are the wildflowers that are blooming at the cabin just now.  From the top they are the Showy Lady Slipper, Lily (aka Tiger Lily) and Yellow Lady Slipper.  Interestingly, the lily is the provincial flower for the Province of Saskatchewan.  We've been having some splendid hot, dry weather!

Your rug looks great, and the fairy delightful, but those wid flowers are just stunning. We have been in Vancouver for the past five weeks ( home tomorrow) and thoroughly enjoyed the warm weather

Your rug is a wonderful way to repurpose old clothing, Kate--it turned out great!

Hope your July is off to a good start--sounds like your weather is perfect for summer :)
