These past couple of months have been extremely hard. Having to make the decision for Ellie when she was still so bright in herself nearly totally broke me. John is still struggling with balancing his meds to have some sort of life. Breathing is often quite a challenge for him especially first thing in the… Continue reading A Catch-up Round-up.
Who would have ever thought August would slide into being an autumnal month! It's certainly been feeling that way with chilly, damp and grey mornings often with mist in the valleys and warmer, sunny afternoons. I don't think I've done the summer/winter wardrobe swap over for several years and months like this are exactly why.… Continue reading Augtember Hmmmm
Bit of a catch up this week! First welcome to you if you have just joined me and come from Sandra's blog Wild Daffodil. Feel free to browse and join in! Question: do you wear an apron?

I decided it was going to be my project to complete one of… Continue reading A Good Start/Finish 2021
I have quite a list of completed projects. I'll start with a chunky cardie I made for me to wear around the house. A nice easy pattern that knitted up quick. I've added pockets since taking this photo. I also finished a waistcoat for Grandson which he had chosen. To be honest the mis matching… Continue reading Catch Up
