Summer is in its prime here in California. I have a lot of yellow-and-red gladioluses blooming in my garden. They are like soldiers standing tall and enduring the hot weather. I like their cheerful and warm colors. And butterflies and hummingbirds are frequent guests in my garden these days.
All this inspired me to put on hold the autumn hat for my son that I was working on and make something summer-like.
The free pattern (symbol chart) was from Anabelia Craft Design blog. I discovered this blog a couple of months ago, and I really love it. There are so many wonderful projects and free patterns there.
I hope your summer (or winter if you are in the Southern hemisphere) is going well, and you too are enjoying whatever the nature has to offer!
I wanted to let you know that I no longer update Lacy Crochet Facebook and Twitter accounts. To be honest I still don't quite understand the rationale behind all these social media channels and how exactly they are supposed to work. For example, I noticed that a very small percentage of my FB followers actually get to see my posts. Then what's the point of posting updates?
I'm trying to cut down the overall time I spend on the Internet, so leaving Facebook and Twitter seems like a good start.
