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!

Natural Inspiration from Attic24

Hey there and happy Monday to you πŸ™‚ One of the biggest things for anyone that creates is finding inspiration and motivation to do so. Sometimes inspiration can come in the most unexpected moments or items, and sometimes it can come without you really noticing, sneaky little thing πŸ™‚ There is however one constant source of inspiration for me, and that is the natural world. Whether it is the beautiful tones of an autumn leaf, the texture of an animals coat or the simple practicality of needing to wrap up warm against Mother Nature’s frequently changing moods, the natural world never fails to inspire, motivate and even sometimes overwhelm me with it’s beauty and elegance.

Crochet + Sunshine!

Crochet Bunny EarsHowdy! Happy Friday to you πŸ™‚ Here in Ireland we have been enjoying a couple of weeks of glorious Spring sunshine, and if you have ever lived in, or even visited Ireland, you will understand why Irish people in general get so happy about “a fine spell of dry weather” aka some sunshine πŸ™‚ I am one of those people! So I have been trying to make the most of the sunshine and also try and be somewhat productive at the same time! It’s all about multitasking people! Continue reading

Hello! Happy Friday to you all! Are you looking forward to your weekend? This week I have spent some time working on one of two projects I am currently developing at the moment; FoxGloves πŸ™‚ A fingerless crochet glove, with a fox motif and it.
