Summer Solstice (& more squares!)

In celebration of the the Solstice, the Sun actually put in a (too) brief appearance this morning! I was excited! I got evidence!!

I'm sure my neighbours must be wondering why I'm always standing outside with arms-length-skyward-pointing iPhone, but at least I no longer have to wonder about the types of clouds. Did you ever hear the phrase "when the student is ready the teacher will appear"? Well it's funny but the day after I posted this about wishing I could name the types of cloud,  I looked across the table at My Boy's smoothie to discover the answers were literally in front of me... on the back of the carton. Fancy that! 

The children have been very busy with reading and colouring this week. This morning they were busily making pictures at 6:30 - it's no wonder the lad is shattered after a full day at school too. There are so many beautiful artworks to display, I'm having to rotate which are given the 'special place' in my Cwtch.

There hasn't been too much colouring or cloud-gazing for me so far this week as I've been single-mindedly making squares in every spare moment. Would you like a peek....? 

If you like these little Grannies of Joy (they are joyous, aren't they?), be sure to pop back tomorrow for "Work in Progress Wednesday" when I'll post lots more pics and a tally.

If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, hope you enjoy the longest day!
