autumn’s here

So yet another month has come and gone…..had September really 30 days this year, it seemed like less!!

The garden still put on a show during the month.

However slipping into October has brought a more autumnal look.

September brought another year!

Thank goodness for cake to soften the blow. 😉

As we both have birthdays at this time of year and as September is also our wedding anniversary month we always like to take a little trip.

This year we had a lovely long weekend in Bristol and Bath.

We had a lovely time in these two great cities.

As you can imagine there wasn’t much time for crafting this month but I did manage to finish four little creatures for my shop.

One more little girl who I have finished is Laurel…..who is a giveaway girl over on Instagram at the moment, so if you’re on IG and would like a chance of winning her, pop over there and enter.

I’m changing the way I list my animals, from now on instead of listing them in a group I’m just going to list them as they’re made and I’ll pop a post on Instagram to let everyone know when they’re in the shop.

So here we are in October and even I have to give in to it being autumn, the seasons have definitely changed!

Happy October and Happy Autumn! 🍂 🍁 🍂

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!! 🙂

merry may

Awe isn’t May just the most beautiful, greenest month of the year….I’m so sorry that it’s almost at an end!

The garden has been doing it’s own beautiful thing!

New blooms are appearing all the time.

I could just spend all of my time outside especially in all this lovely weather we have been having.

We had a lovely celebration during the month when our little granddaughter turned one…still hard to believe….we had a fun time partying and Amelie enjoyed every second of it and took it all in!

One of our outings during May was to Garden Show Ireland, such a lovely day out and very inspiring too.

I have just finished a little group of May girls, who I will be listing in my Etsy shop on Sunday 28th May at 7pm (BST).

More information about them can be found here and more photos here.

What a lovely month May has been, I really can’t believe we are heading into the 6th month of the year already!!

Thanks as always for dropping by and for the lovely comments you leave….have a wonderful June! 🙂
