Hello bloggy friends, and new followers.
Welcome and thank you so much for joining me.
Hope you are all well and wonderful?
It's been a busy time here, my daughter returned to school yesterday for her first day of juniors. It was a big change for her but I think she has enjoyed herself, especially catching up with her friends.
Here is our new little friend Wicket, my daughter's first pet. When I was a child I was always encouraged to keep pets.
I think it's good for children to have something to care for and gives them a great sense of responsibility. Also, keeping pets from such a young age has given me a life-long love of animals that I hope my daughter will inherit too.
I've been busy sorting through bags and bags of knitting needles and pairing them up. On Saturday they will go on sale for fellow knitters at the craft sale.
I treated myself to this little tin, originally for record needles but now a home for pins.
I have quite a collection of vintage tins and will have to show them to you one of these days...
Getting ready for next year, I bought my garden a present of some new bulbs.
I will plant them for much needed early colour in early spring.
This little beauty looks up at me while I'm washing up and makes me smile.
My wool stash had a tiny clear out today - the wool ends I picked out will go to the craft sale.
Our tea last night, requested by my daughter. Simple pasta with roasted red pepper sauce and our courgettes from the garden.
My daughter and I have been harvesting sunflower seeds.
So neat in their little honeycomb home.
Plenty of lovely seeds for the birds.
Lovely Chrissie mentioned in her last comment to me that she would like to see some of my craft sale wears, so here they are.
I've been busy pricing and arranging.
I will take photos on Saturday of my stall for you all to see.
I found pricing quite difficult... I really couldn't decide what they were worth.
So school runs begin and my big weekend is approaching. I am quite nervous to be honest, it's the first time I've put myself out there for opinions and critique.
So bloggy friends wish me luck.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on the last post.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
