It's lovely to be back, I have finally replaced the broken laptop with a new typing friend.
It's taking a while to get used to but I'm sure I'll will get the hang of it soon.
I've tried my best to keep up with you all and have seen some lovely posts.
So after laptop gate I have been mostly wedding planning and doing the never ending jobs an old cottage throws at you.
I have had sometime for crochet too...
This my latest cushion made from the pattern in simply crochet issue eighteen with style craft Aran. I really enjoyed swapping between the different stitches, I even did my first bobble stitch. The original cushion in the magazine is multi coloured and looks fab, mine is toned down a bit so I can use it in my sitting room.
Here are some cheery mandalas.
A kitty travel cushion! I used the pattern from simply crochet issue twenty (the latest)
He took up a lot of double crochets but worth it in the end and is so snuggly.
Cant wait to take him on his first car journey up to north Yorkshire to visit my Grandad.
Here are a few photos from the garden.
1, Cinnabar moth
2, Californian poppy

5, A very full flower bed!
6, Celebration Rose
7, Pink peony
8, Rose hedge in bloom
9, Giant Allium
Has anyone else's children/grandchildren been sucked into the latest craze of loom bands?
My daughter loves them,
I think there great, lovely to see her being creative. The possibilities are endless with what you can make. We think a strawberry key ring might be our next project
My hoover isn't thanking me for all the strays she leaves behind!
I will leave you with my pretty tea cup that a picked up a few weeks back and some garden roses.
Wishing you a lovely end to the week.
