Make cushions while the rain falls!

Flaming June! Well what a to do, June has seen our household entering the domain of another Teenager, although I maintain she has been a practising teen for the last 5yrs! It has seen a trip to the Harry Potter film studio tour, for said Teenagers treat, funny how somethings' remain 'cool'.It has been the month where the garden has gone from lush to lush with knobs on( for lush you can substitute wild!)June was also the month that my lovely Husband ( he will probably read this ! ) gave me a 1930's Art Deco ruby eternity ring! Which i have been hankering after for many a year! It has also been a month of crochet, sometimes frantic, finishing egg cosies for the Bicycle Bazaar that fell foul of the weather, but mostly enjoyable, bags, granny squares, and my first ever circular cushion ! Oh and there was something about a jubilee and apparently more rain than than you can wiggle a crochet hook at, not that I am complaining, bring on the rain as long rainy days = crafting days I'll be humming ( singing would upset the animals! ) And to think it's only 13 days in, wonder what will happen in the rest of the month!
Speak soon.

Must try harder !

I would like to start this post with an apology! I have been seduced by Instagram! and have sorely neglected my blog, and for this I am mightily sorry, every time I take a photo intending to use it here it somehow seems to end up on Instagram! I am a woman out of control!! Not wanting to to inundate the ether with repeated photos and witty captions (well captions anyway !) I guiltily promise myself to make amends, and save my musings, but the instant gratification of seeing my  snaps  along with many others I follow is just too much! and so with shame at my shoulder I do declare  I will try harder and visit more often!

so here a few photos that were destined for the blogosphere only to fall at the first hurdle that is Instagram!

speak soon x
