Coming Up: Christmas Crafting

It’s never too early to start thinking about a handmade Christmas and so all this week I’ll be sharing some simple crochet and knitting projects with you. Starting off with these gorgeous felted crochet baubles, which are so simple even a beginner could make them.

Next up we have … crochet mistletoe …

Button Napkin Rings …

And finally, a cute little baby hat for the little ones.

  3. It all looks lovely – I can’t believe that there’s just under six weeks to go. Once I get the Christmas Fair over with, I can think about making such lovely things for us!

#girlgardener #ediblegarden #naturelover #nofilter When you're enjoying a quiet mug of tea & the sound of geese becomes deafening! Seeing far more fly over the house this year (& occassionally landing in the field, calling to each other then taking off and regrouping as if they have practised for years!! Lots of red admirals in the garden today

I've always baked bread -  not very successfully - but earlier this year I treated myself to a workshop with Andy, who runs the Coffee Kitchen bakery in Cockermouth. He taught us that bread making can be slow &  gentle, that bread is a living food & that inspired me to keep learning & keep experimenting. This is a 100% spelt sourdough fresh from the oven. Mr T is desperate for it to cool down so he can have a slice, thickly spread with butter! Thanks @thecoffkitchen for all your patience & advice.

Trying to restore my mojo with a walk in the forest, where it's so wet that even the squirrels look miserable! Normally I stop here to drink coffee from my flask, but it's onwards & upwards, then home for dry clothes & hot chocolate!
