Summer ? maybe .

We had a lovely few days towards the end of last week and over the weekend. Today has been a little grey and dull , but not too bad.
 I have been doing a bit of stitching on the tiger , this is where I am now .
 It is coming on nicely , I am hoping for a reasonably quick finish with this one. Not had chance to pick up Butterflies yet this week, even though the kids are back at school , I have been really busy .

   We went out for a teatime picnic on Saturday, and went for a walk along the canal . Saw lots of lovely water birds .

 Cute and fluffy ducklings, there were four of them but I couldn't get a good pic of them all together ,they were moving about too much.



 Lovely blossom on the way
  I think this must be a favourite scratching spot for the sheep.
The kids thought it was great and gathered up some of the wool to bring home. I have washed it ,and it came up quite nice. shame there's not enough to do anything with though .

 Thanks for dropping by ,
 Cath

It looks like you had a lovely time on your picnic, sometimes the most simple outings are the most enjoyable :) Your tiger is looking fab, I'm sure a finish is not too far away for this one :)
Best wishes.

Good progress on the tiger!

Ooo, the birds must love those wool bits too for their nest building. I put the mounds of 'wool' that come off my Himalayans in the spring outside in a holder and the birds can't cart it off fast enough for their nest building. (I should note that Himalayan fur is unlike regular cat fut - their dense undercoat really is like wool roving.)
