We are now coming into my favourite time of year – Autumn.
I love Autumnal colours, smells and the darker evenings where you feel happy snuggled up with a project or a book and some music on the stereo. I would say also the lovely crisp sunny mornings but, well, the UK is going through a bit of an Indian Summer and the heat is rising rather than abating, even Patrick can’t take it…
It’s a hard life, isn’t it!
Last year I didn’t do many Craft Fairs and I really missed it. I’ve been thinking about some ideas and have a few days off now to take them forward (as well as relax…)
Firstly some Wreaths – firstly I was just thinking about Christmas, but once I got started I couldn’t stop! I’m trying to decide the decoration for these (apart from ribbon to hang them with) – I’m thinking something simple and not too fussy.
Over the last few years I have made some Halloween baskets, and even shared a pattern here last year. This year I decided to focus on four of the designs and have been asking for votes on which people like the most… Comment below by 5pm Sunday (GMT – UK time) with your four faves and I will enter you in the draw to win a set of four!
Finally, I am still struggling on with my brother’s scarf – reversible half-moon stitch in this gorgeous wool – Katia Basic Merino Flash – going from bright crimson to a dark rich red. Hopefully it’ll be finished soon-ish…
With more to do I’ve started looking at a couple of local Christmas Craft Fairs so I will soon have to start making my very popular Christmas Puds and stockings, and maybe a few more ideas to come.
