Cosies, Cosies, Cosies................

Okay, so let's have a bit of hooky talk today shall we? Ahhhhhhh it's been a while. I have been doing little bits and bobs behind the scenes these past couple of weeks, as and when the mood has taken me. One moment I have looked at all my WIP's and not felt like bothering with any of it, the next, my mind is racing with ideas and wants to make up.

.................I have been struck down with cosy love..........first apple cosies, then little egg cosies.........




These were such fun to make, and have brought big happy smiles to my face. Taken from Nicki Trench's Cute and Easy Crochet. Pretty little lovelies to brighten my mornings. I SERIOUSLY love that book. I enjoyed making them so much, I think I will make up some more for presents. 


It feels nice to be starting to get all the creative flow coming back. I have been spread out all over the place recently, so I am hoping that there will be some lovely calm days over the summer hols to just relax and get some crafty delights finished off!



So, cosies for my apples and cosies for my eggs......hummmmmm anything else cosy-like I have my eye on making?..........We shall see................!!!

P.s Many of you asked what the app was called for my phone....it's called 'Alarmed - reminders, timers, alarm clock'. Also, Many inquired about the tissue paper pom poms........check out here for a tutorial if you are interested.

Currently Enjoying..............



................random lovliness..............


Loving some of the colour in the garden.............
My new rose bush, with it's first bloom of the softest, palest pink flower.............

.........the opening of the Clematis.........I thought I had killed this last year and up it's sprung again......soooooooo pleased............

...........enjoying the scent of this rose. This bush is so sparse but the colour is gorgeous, and scent from the blooms I do get is heavenly that I cannot bear to get rid of it..................


......the Lavender fields behind my house just starting to burst with colour................



........enjoying the last of the brightest, pinkest wild roses in my garden...........I hacked this back so hard last year to paint the trellis, and it was the best thing I have done....the blooms this year have been spectacular............
Picking the pink blooms for my turquoise vases. I love that combination, it makes me smile.

Stopping by the greengrocer and picking up some of the most sumptuous cherries on my way home. They were delicious!

........enjoying a morning cuppa in bed before the bears wake in my beautiful Pip cup and saucer.......


.......making pom poms.................just because.............



......wearing sparkly and pastels and wanting to twirl all day long.........

........enjoying my first couple of blankets I made on the cooler days we have been having..........

....their colour lifts me......

..........enjoying some allsorts..............




............staring at my little pastel bowls and grinning at their pastel lovliness, perfect for muesli and yoghurt........

........................enjoying Baby Bear playing with Betsy. It is a rewarding feeling to have made something that is treasured by your child...........


..........hanging out washing, when the sun is out..........it fills me with joy at the moment......it wont last forever that's for sure!.................

.........checking daily how the alliums are doing..........



.............relaxing with a coffee, a mag and a teacake.......bliss...............



.........loving the vibrancy of the hydrangea when the sun is shining...........

.........snapping a cheeky little cricket who thought he would have lunch on my strawberry leaves..........


A post of complete randomness


...........just everyday things that are making me smile a bit....sometimes it is the simplest things.....

..........you are now at peace............


.......and as the tears flow for what is lost.......there too are smiles, at having been so utterly privileged to have known you and be a part of your life........

Goodbye Beautiful
