Autumn gold

finished the cushion its called Autumn gold it is stuffed with the wool Hello Fresh recycling

warming soup for lunch along with some Greek coffee, mint water and a little chocolate from aldi. I remember my parents visiting Symi and bringing these little mugs back for me

we went pumpkin picking at the weekend to the local farm up in Lydiate it was great fun and we treated ourselves to cake and tea too


Yesterday I visited my parents and while we were having lunch we noticed the huge orange sun in the sky apparently the recent storms and fires in Europe have caused the sun to turn orange with all the dust

Last night it was very windy so perfect to rest my feet on this finished hexagonal hygge rug..we are quite lucky here in Liverpool as we dont really get the brunt of the bad weather as Ireland gets any bad weather coming across the Atlantic first…feeling thankful.

Happy tea tuesday or in my case greek coffee


Wok fountain

I was given another solar fountain so decided to use an old wok to make this fountain..just enjoying the intermittent autumn sun

Peggy doll, metal cards n crochet

At craft group yesterday we were shown how to make these dolls based on the ones from St Lucia..I love her and have called her Peggy.  She sits in front on the new bowl that arrived for my beloved Kenwood mum bought this in the 70s and its still going strong

I always like to buy myself flowers and put them in a vase by the front door.  Here I am  doing a little bit of meditative crochet with my essential oil diffuser waiting for the early morning bus to pick up my son
