I hope you are well.
I've not been blogging or had a chance to visit much.
I do hope I can get back in the swing of things before too long.
We are well into summer temperatures now.
It's usually about 100 degrees during the day, but I still manage to walk early morning on the weekends and late afternoon during the week.
This year on my walks I've seen so many hollyhocks.
Gosh how I love those flowers.
I don't ever recall seeing them sold at the plant souk so I wonder if they are being grown from seed.
The other thing I've not had much time for is crocheting.
But the other night, my oldest son asked me to crochet a hackysack cover for a friend of his at school. Seems he's got everyone making their own hackysacks from old socks and rice or lentils.
I've crocheted many a hackysack upon request.
Then yesterday, Pradeepa at The Lazy Hobbyhopper was giving away a free pdf of her paisley pattern to anyone who left a comment before 6:15 p.m. Indian Standard Time today.
The pdf was in my email this morning and I promptly gave the pattern a go.
My pattern reading skills are not the best so I had to fudge a bit but I managed to end up with a paisley piece to be proud of. :)
Granted, not as nice as Pradeepa's, but I shall keep trying.
This next photo is just for Aishwarya.
She asked to see my crocheted rocks all together.
Some of them were found and crocheted while in Sri Lanka.
Of course, after taking this, I found some that didn't make it into the photo.
They are scattered all over the house in baskets and bowls and on plates with candles.
And some have been given as gifts.
I hope to do some blog hopping over the weekend.
Have a fabulous Friday!
