october

Still lovely to see some colour in the garden at this late stage of the year.

In fact October was quite colourful….until Hurricane Ophelia arrived and wiped out most of it!

Just a few leaves hanging on now as another month passes.

Weather wise the month was on the whole, with the exception of Ophelia, pretty good and we had a lovely day out at the coast where the changing light was amazing.

On the making front, I managed two hats and gilet for my granddaughter and I also made a little Halloween project bag and a matching pumpkin from the lovely Helen’s book, Modern Vintage Gifts.

And of course there were some little creatures too.

Thank you so much to all you lovely people who stop by here and take the time to leave me a comment, I really do appreciate it!

As it’s Halloween, I’ll leave you with a pic of a certain little person choosing her pumpkin! 🙂

Happy Halloween 🎃

bye bye july

The end of July…..well almost but if the next couple of days go by as quickly as the rest of the month, it will be August before we know it.

Not sure how I feel about August, it always seems like it’s all slipping away to the ‘not-so-nice’ bit of the year!

Anyhow I don’t want to dwell too much on that yet!

My garden is full of blooms!!

There have been lots of days out during July….. to gardens…..

and parks…..

alongside canals…..

and to a walled garden…….

to days on the beach……

and misty mountain walks!

Actually the misty mountain walk turned into a downpour and we were soaked to the skin…..and I mean the skin!!

However the weather has mostly been good and we have had some lovely adventures.

There has been some making for my girl during the month too…..a new throw for her room and another little cardigan.

And of course there has been a bit of creature crocheting too!

All these girls will be in my shop this evening at 8pm (BST).

So sadly it’s bye bye July…..you have been lovely!

Thanks as always for taking the time to stop by and read my blog…wishing you all a wonderful August!! 🙂

lovely april

April is the blossom and blue sky month!

There have been a few April showers but generally it has been a lovely month.

And the garden has sprung into life.

Easter of course happened during the month and there were plenty of eggs….both chocolate and woolly!

During the Easter holidays we had lots of lovely walks on hillsides, bluebell woods and parks.

There has been time for some crafting during April as well, I finished a little green cardie for my granddaughter just in time for Easter.

And there have been some little animals too, who will be appearing in my Etsy shop on Monday 24th April at 7pm (BST), more info here and larger images here.

We have a very special first birthday coming on the 2nd May, I truly can’t believe Amelie has been here for a whole year, what a year it has been, she has brought us so much joy!

Thanks for taking the time to drop by, enjoy the last week of April! 🙂
