More on Summer

I had taken almost the whole of last week off to be with V. We normally do not go anywhere for summer, but have a nice relaxed stay-cation. Last week was a good stay-cation for us with some trying-to-catch-up-on-local-events.

V finished painting the sun/moon figure and it's ready to be put up on her room door. She's thrilled with the outcome.

 We went to the beach 

and V had her first ever horse ride.

She was terrified and would not climb the horse. With some coaxing, she finally agreed and though a little scared she did enjoy it.

Cashing in on the mangoes, I made some mango kulfi.
This is my second attempt at kulfi and I should say it came out very well.

Here's May all done up.
I did not have a suitable ribbon or an embellished cord. So decided to make one with the 3 main colors used in the pattern. I love the effect the combination of the colors create.

I have now started November and as luck would have it, the ugly frogs paid me a visit. I did the flowers along the border in the wrong shade!! Ugh, so much for concentration

Well, that's all I have for today. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Beautiful pictures on the beach and lovely finish, nicely made into an ornament too.
