Supper, Day Lily and Knitting

19 Jul

Yet another beautiful day and yet another supper in the evening sunshine – a very simple veggie favourite of Roast Rainbow Vegetables with Halloumi.

Simple supper

Beside us in the border, today’s Day Lily.

Day Lily

We went to Heligan again last night to see 100: UnEarth by WildWorks, brilliant again and we saw the squares that I knitted for the rocket/torpedo. “The knitted torpedo stands by the Well at Heligan  as part of the commemoration of the finish of WW1, 100 years ago. The torpedo was chosen as a symbol for the vast amount of knitting women and children did during WW1 and to commemorate the fact that women made many of the munitions used.”


My knitting as part of the rocket

The squares will all be re-stitched into blankets after the show.

    Beautiful pictures as usual – I adore the knitted rocket and the history that surrounds it not to mention the idea of making blankets after the show. Do they sell it and proceeds go to a charity or do they make the blankets for a hospice or homeless shelter? Your square has a place in history. :). Hugs…

      Thank you Patty, lovely to see you here. I think they will be giving the blankets away but will check and let you know. Lovely heart-warming last comment, thank you! Hugs to you too. 🙂

    What a lovely Day Lily! It’s neat they are putting a blanket together after the exhibit. Donated to charity or a museum I imagine? Well done Sally!

    Love your food-fotos. Colours are gorgeous.

    No need for any rocket in the salad then, I take it? 🙂

            At the moment I am wearing them in my hair while singing that famous Scott MacKenzie song!
            But I shall endevour to give them a nibble as well.
