end of year

Hi everyone it has been a while since I’ve been here!

It seems so much has changed in the past couple of months, November still had quite a bit of colour in the garden…….

…….and then December brought the snow, it was lovely however to see the little bulbs pushing through!

In recent days though it has become quite mild again.

There has been some knitting for the little person in my life over the last few weeks…….

…….a little person who is just beginning to realise the magic of Christmas!

There has been lots of festive animal making too.

They have all now been posted off to their new homes and I am so grateful for all the support given to GRD this year.

I made 55 little girls during 2017 and I finished off with a little bunny called Yule who was my 350th animal!

Today is the Winter Solstice and one of my favourite days of the year because today the light begins to return and that is such a lovely thought.

And according to the GRD calendar it’s only 10 days to Pre-Spring…..wonderful!!!

In the meantime though there has been lots of Christmas preparation going on and it will be lovely to celebrate the day with my family around me.

I would like to wish you all a wonderful Christmas with those you love!

Happy Christmas! 🎄

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!! 🙂
