Hello girls, how's your weekend going?
Are you enjoying some lovely, Spring weather
or the delights of Autumn?
It's been a lovely day here, blue skies, a few clouds but a pleasant temperature.
My camera/computer has been giving me the run around trying to upload photos, but finally it's behaving despite the first pic!!
I've had a lovely day stitching, snipping and finishing off a little project, I've been thinking about for a while.....
You know how much I love Autumn and all it's glorious colours.....
Beautiful, scarlet rose hips and coppery leaves
'She was a curious little creature.
Her blue eyes full of wonder,
Her heart full of love and her arms outstretched to
I needle felted some wool into the Oak leaves, to add a touch
Just need to hand stitch her closed and she's finished.
I'm quite happy with the way she's turned out, although I wanted her hat to look a little more 'slouchy' but hey,
first time 'n all that.
I've called her Fenja (love that name) she lives in the forest and has a natural affinity with all the woodland creatures.
A visit to local gallery on Wednesday saw me buying 2 bags of wool tops.
I've never bought them before, but the wool is so incredibly soft and the colours are just stunning.
Coppery reds, green, purples....so many different colours hidden away among the folds.
Blues and purples, the colours in the pic aren't quite true....but I'm sure I'm going to have some fun with some needle felting projects soon.
Out in the garden one lonely Hollyhock spire is reaching for the sky in a last ditch effort before frosts arrive.
I watched it shooting upwards, wondering if it would manage to flower......
The sky was a dramatic, inky blue yesterday morning when I was feeding the chooks.
Had to race and grab my camera and snap away before it all changed.
It looked a little stormy but there was no rain forecast.......
The Chrysanthemums are starting to bloom.
The long, hot Summer almost killed them, but thankfully they're tough.....
Tig has done his contortionist impression and made himself comfortable in the box Ted arrived in from Devon.......
Fortunately Ted had long vacated it and made himself comfy elsewhere.
He's settled in nicely and thankyou all for your name suggestions.
Mrs Micawber thought it should be something suggestive of faded splendour and Annie @ Knitsofacto felt it should be something with gravitas so that's the direction I'm heading in.
I'll keep you posted but if you have any more suggestions along these lines, please let me know.
It's been a big week for celebrations here.
Hubby and I celebrated 20 years of marriage on Wednesday
He took me out for a lovely lunch and had bought me some very thoughtful gifts.
It's hard to believe it's 20 years...in the blink of an eye!!
Tomorrow No.1 celebrates his 22nd. birthday.
He'll be away, working on his birthday,
playing at St. Alban's Folk Festival,
but somehow I don't think he'll mind!
He's doing what he loves so what more can you ask for.
Well I think I can stay awake long enough to do another round on my granny square blanket. Takes that little bit longer each round, but I am getting there......slowly.
Thanks for the lovely comments you all left on my last post.
I have some new followers so welcome to all of you.
Have a great weekend girls and thanks so much for coming over to visit......
