Summer skies and summer schools


I had a little change around in the garden the other day and moved the garden bench to another spot on the patio where it's not blocked in by the bike (hurray!) and where it gets the sun all day long! When the sun actually shines that is! My patio is a sun trap and very sheltered, unlike the rest of the garden which is open to all the breezes available to a house on top of a hill. Sometimes that's nice though, so I'm not complaining. Of course, it hasn't taken the girls long to recognise the advantage of the newly placed garden bench. They each have been spotted shamelessly flaunting themselves in unadulterated sun worship. It has also had the benefit of making the Harley shunt up closer to the house, and freeing up more of the patio.

Speaking of cats, today whilst I was blog surfing, I came across this blog all about Chase the cat and her daily adventures. Check it out, it's kinda humbling. It's amazing, her will to live and to enjoy life. It's a lesson to us all. 

Want to see last nights beautiful sunset? Tada! 

Okay, I promised you some Summer School pictures; we're all playing with Modroc here, which is a sort of plaster bandage like the sort used to immobilise broken limbs. 

We made Giacometti inspired spindly figures, plaster hands and Slipknot inspired masks.

The photo quality isn't that good I'm afraid, I snapped them with my mobile phone camera, but you get the picture (Hee hee! Excuse the pun!)

There's still time to enter my Blogoversary Giveaway, you have until 4th August to leave a comment. The original post is here and it gives you all the details of what to do and what you can win.

Also, I *love* your DIY stitch holders (from earlier). Such a great idea!
