Goodness me. Is it really that long since my last post?
Time is flying by.
I thought I would touch base.
Show my face as it were.
Say a great big.......
I have been snowed under in the real world.
As I harp on every year about how stressful these last couple of months seem to have become, yawn, yawn, I really have not stopped to catch my breath.
I agreed to make several cowls for people on Instagram, it has kept me busy this whole month.
I also decided that I needed more hot water bottles. They are my new best friend. I made a few in april and loved them.....
So covers needed to be made. The one in the top picture was one made on a whim, it's my favourite, and no one else in my family is allowed to go near it! My super duper mother-in-law gave me some gorgeously chunky cream yarn. This was the perfect yarn for such a project. I was winging it on the pattern front, just like the others. I wanted a cross stitch on the front of something. I love how it turned out. All homely and rustic. Perfectly imperfect.
It has been chilly for the most part, but some days are bright and sunny so I've been trying to get a bit of fresh air when I can.
We managed to grab a weekend in Wales, which was great to re-charge the batteries.
I feel the cold. Boots, tights, chunky knits etc. The Mr on the other hand, will try and wear shorts for as long as he possibly can. Mad I tell you.
It's been a beautiful Autumn.
I have been on a mission to eat healthily, although I seem to have had a real craving for pie. It doesn't seem right to go through Autumn without pie. Cherry Pie to be exact. I cannot get enough. So not really healthy, ha ha!
I fell in love with a pie on the front cover of The Farm Chicks book. I think it was for strawberry and rhubarb. But stars it has been from that moment on. Starry pie. No one really gets a look in. The pig in me rears it's head. Pie or Crumble....people get shoved out of the way. I just cannot help it.
What else have I been up to? It's been such a long time......
Oh, like many, I got my copy of Granny chic.
It does not disappoint. Seriously drool worthy.
I also received a lovely book in the post.....
Huge, but good. I am determined to master good bread making. This has a brilliant bread making section.
I have also been trying to get presents made.....
Also lighting mini lights now the darker days are drawing in.......
...and saying hello to a new fella...
So, I think I am more or less up to date.
It's all still manic.
Have a beautiful weekend all
