Rainy Days...

I hope I find you well and wonderful?

I thought I would show you these cute little socks I've been hooking up.
You can find the pattern here if you have time have a look-see around this blog there are lots of lovely things to make and see.
I've used the basic pattern from the link, I used all one colour, style craft lipstick (the ones on the link are multi coloured and fab)
I added a little decoration to each one to make them all different.
I've used teeny tiny pegs to hang my socks.
There really cute with the red and white bakers twine.
I've nearly finished my last five that will be going to live with my sister in law.
I've recently made a baby blanket in wool.
I'm such a fan of style craft, but I must admit working in a lovely soft wool was a welcome change. I really loved the look of it too after it was all blocked.
I used drops lima which is a bargain at the moment!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on the last post.
Now I'm off to catch up with what you've all been up to.

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.
