Crochet Update

Hello Everyone, it's lovely to have you visit me today.

It's another beautiful sunny day, but it was  so very cold this morning.

An update to my Autumn/Winter coloured, crochet  blanket, yes I've just finished 2 rows,  with 6 more to go.

Would you like a look ???  I am so pleased with my work todate, and it's as visulised.

Two rows completed 

A close up of 4 squares

I am entering in Ginny's Yarn Along, and the book I am reading is Twisted Tracks by Lesley Horton, a crime novel and I am really enjoying reading one or two chapters on an evening  cosy and comfy in bed.

Sunrise early this morning.

Thank you for your comments, I love to read them.

Blowin' in the Wind

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit today.

I would like to say Hello to Mamapez5 my latest follower.  Thank You Mamapez for following my blog.

My post title is very appropriate as it's gale force winds today.  Lovely blue skies and mild for this time of the year, but very windy LoL.

I've been playing with various stamps, markers, stamp pads, an embossing folder, getting inky in the process but generally enjoying myself.

Here is the result (sorry about the lopsided photo)

Card:  White blank and Snippets of White
Stamps:  SU Morning Meadow (flowers) Inkylicious Bullrushes  (Birds)
Colouring Medium:  SU Marker Pens, SU Stamp Pads in Basic Gray, Bashful Blue
and my favourite green Pistachio Pudding (always reminds me of Christmas)
Embossing Folder:  SU Wood Grain (first time used)
Bits & Bobs:  Gems, Nellie Snellen Leaf Punch, XCut Tiny Butterfly punch, 
SU Pansy Punch, Circle Nesties

Anything Goes With a Twist - A Touch of Pink
Brown Sugar Challange - Anything Goes 

Yesterday, I did lots of crochet and have almost finished the eight large squares ready to join onto the first row, I will post my work in progress later in the week.

This morning was lovely and light compared to yesterday, so I'm hoping to be out early in the morning.

Thank You for your comments, I love reading them.

I've not ventured out as yet, although it's bright, sunny but blowing a hoolie (as T would say)  I do need to return a book to the library (yes I've actually finished reading it) and buy a few bits and bobs, and later today I'm putting together Row 2 of my crochet blanket woopety, woop.

Our clocks go back tonight so an extra hour in bed to curl up cosy and warm and start my new book.

This and That

Hello Everyone, thank you for your visit today.

Another dry, warm day, although it's a bit nippy in a morning.  Our clocks go back at the weekend so the nights will be getting darker earlier, but the mornings will be lighter.

October’s the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown.
