Story On Tuesday I went for a walk on the Common with a few walking group friends – all in-line with guidelines and socially distanced. We were taken to Highfield village where there was a tree that had had to be cut down where the guy had carved it into the shape of an arm… Read More What do you think of this!
I have finished my Spiderdream top and plan to put together a post about it later this week. Looking back over this last month, I find that I haven’t shared any knitting and in fact I haven’t done any either. I finished the central part of my Celtic Knot Granny blanket and started the border.… Read More Monthly Montage – August
I always like walking with a purpose (not just ‘for exercise’) and today I had a reason to go to the Common. I did feel that I was maybe a bit late to the party but a few days ago, after reading Nana Cathy’s post I looked for blackberries. In lots of places the bushes… Read More A Fruitful Walk!
I have mentioned this before in a couple of comments but I thought it deserved a post. As you can see it is about rainbows, or at least rainbow shaped designs, on trees.

No Knitting this last month. I did pick up my second sock and do a bit but my wrists started to hurt. Somehow crocheting granny squares is so much more wrist friendly!

Doesn’t look too bad there but if you look round. I have two… Read More My Green Garden
This month I shared the last succulent that I had made: as a gift this time. Then, with my wrists finding crochet a bit painful, I switched more to sewing and caught up with much delayed mending and completed a little more of the cross stitch bookmark. Later in the month I decided to try… Read More Monthly Montage – May
Yesterday when I was out in my garden I noticed how interesting the leaves on my Lenten Rose were. I don’t think I have ever seen them so beautiful. Nearby the leaves of the pulmonaria are also amazing. There seem to be two sorts. A blotchy sort. and a spotty sort. The leaves of the… Read More Leaves can be interesting too
With all the extras posts I’ve been doing it has been hard to choose photographs to include in this month’s montage because I normally aim to include at least one photograph from each post. I did consider leaving out the cooking I have shared but in the end decided to include it and chose just… Read More Monthly Montage – April
