"Butterfly Wishes"

Hello Blog friends I do hope you are all well.  thank you for all you lovely comments on my Baby Blankie.  I am a knitter rather than a Crocheter, I did struggle a little with the Bunnies.  However I have cracked it and I feel each one will get better.  On the Pattern they have arms, I am still working on them at the moment.  A little patience and I will get there. 
Woke up this morning to "fog" that you could not see through.  That cleared to give some really bright sunshine which of course did not last till lunch time.  It has been OK but it is really cold, more like end of September than August.  Have got out the furry slippers, left the UGG boots in hope that we might, just might get an Indian Summer......!!!!
They were cutting the crops round the Ranch yesterday Man! oh! Man! you should have seen the dust.  Everything is now covered in Grain Dust.  Closed all the windows and doors in hope to keep some of it out of the house.  So far so good, not too bad, did a quick dust round, it will be OK till cleaning time on Friday.  John is outside at the moment hosing things down. Tables and chairs are thick with the dust  .... not that we have the weather to sit on them.  That`s his job, John deals with all the outside things, I do the inside.  Outside is a much bigger area than inside so that will keep him busy for a while.  Hope he does the cars as well, they are really bad.  I should have put mine in the garage but I was out and in so many times yesterday I would have been exhausted opening and closing that garage door.  Keep telling John we need one of those "sapper" things for the door!!!
Here is my Crafty Offering  for today:-

  25. A beautiful and delicate card Patricia. You can't go wrong in my book with butterflies!
    We have the same system in this house, me in, him out. Harvesting here too, a mucky job but it has to be done, don't seem to have had the huge amount of thunderflies which normally arrive around the same time too.
    Enjoy your weekend.

    Hugs Erika.
