End of another month. A more unusual montage this month as I have had no new knitted or crochet items to show you as I continue on with my blanket that is still just a collection of motifs. There has been Pizza! and photographs of flowers in my garden and a look back at past… Read More Monthly Montage – February
I can definitely recommend this Daphne for given you a boost this time of year. Not sure what it’s exact name is. I can see it from the sitting room when lying on my settee and it is scented too! You have t go outside to catch the scent of course. Look at all those… Read More February Flowers
The best basis for a monthly montage is lots of square pictures. This month there have not been a lot of photographs and especially not square ones, so I had a real problem creating the montage. Normally I would have included my montage celebrating last years makes as part of this month’s montage but I… Read More Monthly Montage – January
The title is almost certainly an Americanism but never mind; they can be quite striking. I read on Friday that during the latest lockdown people in this country are exercising less and watching more television. For myself it has been quite the opposite. I wear a fitness device and before last March although my step… Read More Bucking the Trend
A while ago I showed you some pages from my Project Book.

It hardly seemed worth putting up decorations as I will be spending Christmas alone but in the end I did… Read More Happy Christmas
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. This is probably the Rainbow with the most professional look showing a doctor revealing himself to be superman. The rainbow contains the… Read More The Rainbow Trail
