July has been a flurry of family visits, crisp winter mornings and beautiful warm sunny days. Bright colours are never too hard to find whether amongst the local birdlife, garden or relaxing sunsets.
Work on the new bridge for our town is well underway, adding a new interest to my walks over the old existing bent, double decker bridge.
Hand sewing continues to be my choice of creative activity. I'm still enjoying stitching blocks for my Ice Cream Soda quilt, especially now that I have finally decided on how I'd like to join them together into a quilt. My long term hand stitching Fresh Fields quilt also saw some progress - the joys of having more available time during school holidays. :)
My husband's health has continued to decline :( and my laptop is currently away being repaired after it unexpected stopped working over a week ago. Thankfully my laptop was able to be restored and should be returned in the next couple of days. I've been rather amazed at how much I can do using my phone alone (and very grateful that I had my photos from Instagram on it) and for the use of one of our teenagers' laptops to compose this blogpost.
"To be content doesn't mean you don't desire more, it means you're thankful for what you have and patient for what's to come." Tony Gaskins. That seems to be a pretty good definition to me :)
