This Week I’m Loving…

Playing with colour: Making these fab Loopy Roses from Australian Crochet designer Sarah London

Crocheting little motifs in vibrant shades of Debbie Bliss Cotton DK and Rowan Handknit Cotton  to  make a blanket that will cheer up me up on winter mornings …

I’ve also been reading …

Pinterest – a great way to share ideas and inspiration.

This article about Ravelry –  I knew it was big – but not that big!

I’ve been enjoying … my Ishbel, knitted in beautiful Shilasdair Luxury 4 ply. Of course it’s too hot to wear right now, but that hasn’t stopped me taking it everywhere!

Ishbel (Pattern by Ysolda Teague)

I’ve also enjoyed the new Harry Potter film (end of an era), all the frivolity of Fibre + Clay at RHS Tatton, a lovely lunch with some knit group pals and planning a little trip away with the teen. I’ll see you all when I get back when voting will be over. Thank you so much to everyone who voted for me and sent such lovely messages. They are all much appreciated.

Have a good week, I know I will.

  • Adorable twitchy nose, cute little feet - but don't be fooled - this cheeky fella has eaten every single pea I planted in the greenhouse - no wonder his coat looks so glossy!
#girlgardener #ediblegarden #organicgardener #permaculture #forestgarden #growyourownfood  #slowliving One of the most  precious gifts you'll get in life is a best frend. Flowers from the garden - even in January! Last year I set myself a goal, to have flowers from the garden every week of the year. January it seems is easy - winter flowering clematis and viburnum doing a great job of cheering up the utility room today! Gardens are about feeding the soul, not just food for the table.
#cuttinggarden #flowergarden #permaculture #forestgarden #girlgardener #makingwinter #winterstories Last Saturday morning, Allonby. Wish every weekend could start with a walk on the beach, the winter light is so beautiful! 
Today I shall mostly be blocking crochet swatches, baking bread (my "signature" spelt  sourdough) & trying to book an Easter holiday! Whatever you have planned, be happy my Instagram friends xxx
#slowliving #winterstories #notjustlakes #morningslikethese #seekthesimplicity In the greenhouse, in the dark - clearing up and making room for this year's veg :So good to be getting dirt under my fingernails!
#girlgardener #growyourownfood  #organicgardener #ediblegarden #permaculture #forestgarden Hellebores, I love their delicate flowers and "barely there" shades of pink and couldn't resist bringing a few into the house today.  I'm slowly dealing with the pile of work on my desk, answering emails and doing one task at a time! 
Living with chronic illness is challenging and frustrating, but  slowing down and make the most of each day is a lesson I needed to learn!
