We're all going on a "Summer Holiday" (Cliff Richard) was one of my favourite songs as a kid! The other song that reminds of summer is "Summer Love" (Sherbet). That song and Sherbet's "Howzat" were summer staples for us as kids....
I grew up in the 70's and as a kid I couldn't wait for the Summer / Christmas Holidays to come around - no school and lots of sitting around reading or visiting the local swimming pool and getting tanned (or should I say cooked with all that coconut oil we used to slather on!!!) with the music blaring on our little cassette/tape recorders! Those were the days!
Ok.... so what am I blabbing about Summer for... well, for one I am freezing and so over Winter - apparently according to the weather boffins it is the coldest winter that we have had for 18 years here in what should be sunny Perth - and don't I know it! While we humans that live in the Southern Hemisphere are experiencing Winter for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere it is Summer and our lovely Jo (Serendipitous Stitching) is having a Summer Holiday Blog Party for everyone to show off their summer stitching - link to the linky post is here.
Jo's thinking is that while a lot of us stitch for the other seasons during the year as they tend to be covered by Easter, Halloween and Christmas, poor old Summer does occasionally get forgetten about! So here is a post dedicated to Summer Stitching!!
In preparation for the post I went through my old blog posts to see what I have stitched and finished that relates to Summer.... and I did manage to find some summery stitching.

And last but not least... how about an update on my current summer stitching - Moutons de Saisons "Été" - Collection Tralala
The last time I showed you "Été" it looked like this:
and it now looks like this:
I was going to save this til next week... but I did just have to share it as it is so close to being finished!!
So that's it for my post.... Hope you enjoyed my ramble/reminiscing of my summer stitching!
Til next time, happy stitching
