A Catch-Up!

How about this view of the gorgeous Welsh countryside. Isn't it lovely? OH and I were out looking for blackberries on one of the last warm days of our long summer. Do you see the white house at the bottom of the hill? We are heading down towards it. It was getting a bit late in the season for blackberries so we had quite a struggle to fill even one ice-cream container between us.

 With cold weather imminent it's time to start thinking about making more snuggly things for my craft stall. This scarf is the second I've made from an un-run jumper that I didn't wear much. I also bought a huge bag of yarn from the church Autumn Fayre yesterday, so more scarves may be on the way.

I made 4 more bags, to add to my stall on 26th Oct, like the one I made for myself (under the scarf in the pic above); I sold one already and will be selling another on Tuesday! I'll have to get going on some replacements now, but it's a good problem to have.

I've finished my proofreading course and it's helped me realise how much I still have to learn. I have a few related books around the house that I've not looked at before, but I'm glad I left them until after doing the course. They will be good for revision and reinforcement, and they'll have lots of extra information too. Luckily the proofreading work I've had so far has almost paid for the course.

Bag pics next time, and also, hopefully, a finished quilt!

Bye for now

What a lovely landscape you have photographed! It is idyllic with its gentle rolling hills, trees and sweet bovine faces. It is slowly getting cooler here but no where near scarf weather yet. :(

The blackberries have been wonderful this year - the raspberries less so... I think it's about rainfall. I rarely think I need as many blackberries as I get from the allotment, they're a bit too toothsome so are only added to apples in relatively small quantities. What do you do with yours?
