As ours is nearly over, I have to tell you we have spent this one gloriously with our lovely son, daughter-in-law and family. The next, we have DH's annual family reunion, followed by a very good young friend the following one ... I might just rest and catch=up with myself on the final one :). Sewing and reading sounds so relaxing. Did you get the microwave?

Such a pretty card - I like the banner look ... Our lovely young ones have just left too. Isn't it quiet?
Who could NOT be cheered on seeing this! How glorious ... some wise part of you knew you'd need this fabric :).

A great reminder, and I just love this rough textured frame .. Hoping you are enjoying a great time and the trials of summer swimming are nearly over.

Such a sweet pair :). Hoping that you are all having the most glorious of times together ...

Those gardens are just lovely - and I really like that curving perspective. Sorry to hear that July has not been so good for you, and hoping for better things this month.

Aren't these all lovely? Sunshine in a card - what is better! I come from NI, but I've never come cross that word!
Isn't it a fantastic app? I love your petunias - so pretty. Would make a great fabric; you could print it onto cotton via your printer, Honoré, and quilt with it :). Sorry to have be AWOL. Trying to catch up.
I am so delighted to see they've been of use to you, Karen, and how beautifully you have embellished and adapted them! Framing them in matching colours is perfect. You have made my heart sing :).

Oh my goodness, that second card is so clever - I was staring at thinking "How did Karen do this?" It's just perfect. I am envying you your 'lady' boat. I'd love to travel in something like that.

Thank-you for those lovely wishes :). And I do like the colour of your fence/balustrade ... Will think of you when I get up early and sit outside in the morning, watching the sun through the trees, just like your photo.

Sandie, I think would be a perfect addition to your camper van :).
That's a great photo and you've really made it sparkle! Wishing all good things for you and the family on this special day for your country.

And a very handsome specimen it is too ...
I think it counts, Gail - it's beautiful ...

This comes with warmest good wishes for your special day over there - hoping there's Key Lime Pie AND Apple Brown Betty and lots of sparkly fireworks to enjoy :).

Wishing you all good things on this special day for you. Those cards are very crisp - that last one is my favourite with the little layered triangles/bunting.

Your pages always 'breathe' despite the wealth of detail - the contrast of your chosen elements with the white is simply lovely. I am seriously impressed with your decluttering! Hoping that the getting to know another part of the family helps to ease your sadness ...

Clean and layered? I had no idea such a grouping existed but it's perfect for your super work, and a category I could aspire to. I am always taken with the sheer precision of your work - looks so professional.

Lovely, lovely cards, Karen - and if you're ever short of a post, a photo of your Peerless watercolours and some instructions would be a treat :).

Awww, so very sweet ... Love his little boxing mitts :). That must be such a joy getting a daily photo. You'll be able to chart the changes.

Keep going! I've just had a peek at Mary's and yours is going to be equally lovely. What a rich yet light colour ... Hurrah for the universe pointing you in the right direction!

That looks like an admirable challenge ... I used to love fiction and I now don't know when I last read a novel. I don't think Moby Dick would be on my must-read list either :).
These are very pretty and I have never heard of New York beauty blocks... If I were to try and finish all my unfinished projects and classes before the end of the year, Honoré, I'd need to take six months off work and stay up all night, every night!
