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! 🙂

march already

Can you believe it’s March already, this year is moving along far too quickly, it is lovely though having longer evenings and of course we are now in ‘real’ spring!

Flowers are becoming more plentiful and it’s great to enjoy them both inside and out now.

February as always provided some opportunities for yummy things to eat…with Valentine’s Day and Shrove Tuesday.

During the past month I’ve been knitting some new things for my little princess and buying some lovely new yarn to make some more. 🙂

Of course there have been some new animals too!

This is Fifi and her little dog Pepe.

Fifi is a little French bunny and she loves nothing better than taking Pepe for a walk in a Parisian park and then stopping off in Laduree for some macarons.

A little grey mouse called Mustard!

It’s lovely at this time of year to have the pretty little primula to brighten up pots and window boxes and this little bear is a celebration of those colourful plants…….meet Primmie.

And the final one this time is a little mint green bunny who has of course been named Minty!

All four of these girls will be listed in my Etsy shop on Sunday 5th March at 7pm (GMT).

Please note they are collectibles only and are not suitable for children under 14 years.

Thank you so much for dropping by, wishing you all a very happy March………it’s Spring! 🙂
