Autumn Days...

Hello, happy autumn greetings.
We've had a lovely half term here, mild weather and plenty of fresh air.

A little colour left in the garden. I picked a dahlia today to cheer up the window sill in my bedroom.
I was very pleased with my three home grown pumpkins!
I've been quietly working on my Grandad's Christmas present ssh!! Don't tell.

A cosy lap blanket for chillier nights.
It hooked up quite quickly in a granny stripe pattern, I used stylecraft grey dk yarn and a blue from my stash.

My cat Dusty seems to have taken to one of my vintage suitcases I think I might have to get him one of his own and convert it into a bed.
Thank you for your kind comments on the last post.
