Things I’m Loving …

This week I’m loving …

The beautiful photos of her latest knitted animals  Julie has posted over on Little Cotton Rabbits

The comments on Emma Varnam’s blog – so much love and laughter …

Browsing the Woolfest programme, and feeling like an excited kid as I count down the days to my visit …

Knitting … I’ve just cast on Tirrold, a beautiful lace weight vest from Jeni’s new book “The Scrumptious Collection), pictures will follow soon.

And … spending time at the allotment between showers, picking the first ripe strawberries and salad leaves from the garden.

What are you loving just now?

  • Passionflower. One of the joys of our holiday this year was stumbling across the unexpected. We walked past a garden fence covered in these flowers & their ripening fruit. In my schoolgirl French I asked the elderly gentleman if I could take a photo, in better English than my French he invited us in to admire his plot. You can read more about him on the blog, where I've also been writing about how having too much can be a good thing - even if you're a minimalist!

Finally got a photo of me wearing my new sweatshirt, bought from @mirandagorebrowne I ♥♥♥ it so much. The fabric is soft, it fits really well and now washed 3 times it still looks like new! Go buy one before they sell out (also available: "nice buns" & "jammy dodger")
#starbaker #gbbo #kitchenschool #bakemeacakeasfastasyoucan  #bakersofinstagram #baking #lovelythings #instafood #eatme I miss this view so much. Even our current view of sunset over the wheat fields can't compare to a French field of sunflowers!

#beautyintheordinary #simplethings #simpleliving #slowliving #colourinspiration #wildflowers #keepthewildinyou Finding beauty in the ordinary. This is the doorstop that held open the shutters at our holiday home, the rose had the most amazing scent. Over the next few days I'm going to share more pics of the hidden spaces and small corners of this beautiful house. This was a slow holiday in the best possible way. We did plenty, but at our own pace. We strolled down cobbled streets, we explored tiny village markets and ate delicious locally grown veg, farmhouse cheese and charcuterie that would give the health and safety police nightmares!!! In other news, new book is going well but as I can't really share progress crochet pics might be sparse for a while.
