The Flowers I went to Waitrose this morning to do a bit of shopping for things I need before my next delivery on the 13th. As I was packing my rucksack and about to leave, an assistant came up to me and asked if I would like some free flowers, so of course I said… Read More Free Flowers & Focaccia
In July, apart from my normal monthly Montage post, I had three posts about cooking, three posts about crobhet and two posts about my apple tree. Crochet first. I published my latest pattern for a thing that I call a Hexatetraflex. I had made the standard version and a slightly more ambitious version that gave… Read More Monthly Montage – July
I hadn’t intended to post anything today because I thought more about the coat would be boring and I didn’t really have much else to show you. However the weather was perfect for gardening this morning so I went out to pick up the dead leaves round the apple tree. Now, I bought the apple… Read More More apple tales and garden flowers

So of course when they offered to pick me up to accompany them to The Hovercraft Museum in Lee-on-Solent I jumped at the idea.… Read More A Little Outing including sea!
The last day of the month and time for the Monthly Montage! This last month the blanket I have made for my granddaughter took centre stage. I shared details of the planning and the pattern plus a look at the final blanket with its edging. For a bit of variety I added a recipe for… Read More Monthly Montage – May
About a year ago I joined Instagram and joined in with Wild Daffodil’s daughter for #gardencollagemonthly, making a collage of the current flowers in my garden each month. Now a year later I have twelve months’ worth. And here they all are. From June to May. left to right and top to bottom. My one… Read More A Year of Flowers
