Gratitude

Hi there, hey there, ho there! Happy Monday to one and all πŸ™‚ The last Monday of September 2015, just imagine this day will never ever come again, kinda humbling right?

Neat how things can be flipped around all because of a little shift in perspective,Β huh?! Continue reading

To Autumn

from “To Autumn” by John Keats.

“Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,β€”
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
Among the river sallows, borne aloft
Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.”

It’s rainy!

So Bertie the Badger didn’t really want to go outside in the rain today, but never fear Nelson the Unicorn was here πŸ™‚ So they borrowed one of my umbrellas and headed off for a rainy day adventure πŸ™‚ I just hope my umbrella comes back in one piece!

On the hook!

Howdy, happy Wednesday to you πŸ™‚ On my hook today is something verrrrrrryyy scarrrrryyyy…..ok, they are not that scary, well actually to my mind they are not scary at all, actually I think they are quite cute! πŸ™‚ Do you agree? Some minor adjustments are needed, then some alterations and additions to the pattern and we’re done! A perfect crochet addition to anyone’s Halloween me thinks πŸ™‚

On the Hook!

Howdy doody peeps, a very happy Wednesday to one and all πŸ™‚ It’s coming you know….Halloween…(I said Halloween in a scary voice, just so you know!) So this week I have been working on some cute crochet decorations to spook up your holiday this year πŸ™‚

Any guesses as to what it might be? Answers on a postcard please to… ah who am I kidding, it’s fairly obvious that it’s a pumpkin! I am fairly happy with the overall shape, but I now have to face my arch nemesisembroidery … dun dun dunnnnnnnn 😦 I don’t know why, but I always seem to find adding facial pieces to any amigurumi pieces the most difficult part and it’s usually where I mess up 😦 But where there’s a will and all that. So I will focus, I will take my time and I will adorn my crochet pumpkin with facial features, gosh darn it!Β  Who’s with me? O yeah, nobody because I haven’t published the pattern yet, d’oh.

Happy crocheting! See you next time!

Ready for his close up!

Gosh darn it, Unicorns are so vain, aren’t they? How vain are they? Well, they are so vain they probably think this song is about them πŸ™‚ (little musical reference there!) Nelson insisted on looking through all of the photos on my camera, just to see, and approve any shots of him! Unicorn’s eh?!

Working Wednesday!

Howdy, and a very happy Wednesday to one and all. How’s your month going?! September is officially here and it’s got a bit of a buzz about it, don’t you think? I think, now, don’t quote me on this, but I think that I am almost finished the project I have been working on the past couple of weeks πŸ™‚ Can I get a “heck ya!”?…..thank you πŸ™‚

Progress

So it’s looking good, which is good πŸ™‚ Once the making stage is done, then it will be onto the photographing stage and the pattern typing and formatting stages, so lots of stages to look forward to!
