Hello.... Lately we have had misty mornings and sunny afternoons and there is a tell, tell nip of Autumn in the air.

 There have been pretty Anemones here at the Summerhouse (my favourites)

Lately as always there has been crochet, despite some seriously painful joints, this time it's chosen wrists, hands, knees and ankles to set up camp in.

There has also been the cheery gift of a cute little Pom Pom Robin from a friend, who I'm planning to hang on my tree lights, I feel the display needs a bit of updating in line with the changing season

Lately there has been a wonderful weekend of music, as the town hosted it's annual 'Folk by the Sea festival'  I managed to go along for a couple of hours both days of the weekend to see a little bit of the festival.  I even performed a few of my songs, there are a couple of photo's of me performing in the Mosaic.

Lately I've also been playing around with layout ideas for my Autumn Time Wreath, here's a little sneak peak picture from earlier last week.

It's changed a lot since this picture and is coming together fairly quickly as I've been borrowing Flowers and Leaves from the other seasons wreaths and other crafts projects.

As for today well I'm spending it resting up in bed, after the busy weekend, my body is really not happy about my adventure, payback it such a pain, literally but at least it was fun.  I'm off to see the Immunologist on Wednesday so here's hoping he might have more of a clue about what's been going on lately.

At least there is this beautiful rose from the garden, on my bedside table to make me smile.

Happy Crafting

Clare xx

  10. Clare performed her songs brilliantly - it always amazes me how much crafting you manage to fit into your limited crafting time Clare, you must be a lot more organised than me! Thank you to everyone who commented on my little pom pom robin :) x
