September Mosiacs

Hello...... as always I'm in catch up mode with last months mosiacs, each month I planned to have it ready to post at the beginning of the next month but some how it never quite happens like that.

So September, wow it was such a mild and sunny month here in the UK, a month where I settled down to a spot of impromptu wreath making, so most of my crafting centred around that, although I did make up a 'Owl and the Pussy Cat' cushion for the next Craft Club exhibition.

With a trip out to a local Wildlife park, the Folk Festival, plus some medical appointments I did quite a lot for me and boy has my body been complaining about it with a bit of a flare up, but at least I didn't fully crash into a relapse until after my wreath was finished.

With all the sunshine out in the garden things were blooming, all this colour still going on in September, the only things not colouring up are the Tomato's but I'm not getting stress about that, as I type they are in a paper bag with a banana hopefully turning red, well at least a bit orange I hope.

There are signs of Autumn to be found out in the Summerhouse garden, and for the sure this week Autumn has stepped in with a bang with winds and thunder and hail stones.

No original art work this month, as I just didn't get around to it, but here's a pic of my September colouring from the lovely 'Secret Garden a inky treasury' colouring book.

The year in Books

Happy dance happy dance, I'm so pleased to say I have finally finished July read, I'm so glad to have finally gotten through this book, I loved the first book 'Earthly Pleasure' but really struggled with this one. I guess there was to much war for me and the central character was a man who I found it very hard to be endear too, but at least I made it to the end.

This months read it 'Thirteen Moons' by Charles Frazer, I've got organised this time and figured out I need to read at least sixteen pages a day, to have it finished in a month. I think it's not going to be a hard task as so far it's really good.

I really enjoyed Cold Mountain, also written by this Author, so I think it's going to be a good one.
Well that's about it for another month, I'm going away for a couple a days with the family and my lovely Mum who is having very special birthday tomorrow, with a zero. So I'll be back at some point next week with a post when I've recovered a bit.

Happy Crafting

Clare xx


  1. Lovely mosaics as always :) Hope you have a super time with your family and recover quickly when you get home xxx

  2. Loving your bookmark! I like the idea of doing a mosaic in this way, I might have to try it next time round!

  3. Hope you have a wonderful time with your family creating some lovely memories.

  4. Another colouring-in fan.... it seems that there is a craze, for want of a better word, at the moment for colouring books for grown-ups and about time too! I have a collection of seven or eight, all different, and am always on the lookout for new ones. I am rubbish at original artwork, so this feeds that side of my creative nature.

  5. Lovely to see your moments from September again! Happy Birthday to your Mum, I hope you have a good day. xx

  6. You had such a lovely month, Clare. I hope you've been feeling well lately. You know, I read The Other Boleyn Girl years ago and LOVED it so much, and have re-read it a few times, but have never been able to get into any other Philippa Gregory books. I guess that one just really grabbed me!

  7. I love viewing your mosaics, Clare, and am so impressed you know how to create them. The technical part of posting continues to be a mysterious challenge to me :-) xx
