Making progress and more sunny days

I’m loving these late summer days…

    I do love to read your blogposts – I still find it a little mind blowing that we’re opposite seasons, with you in late summer and here in the UK we’re experiencing an awful wet winter still! Frozen was a massive hit with my two girls too – Maia’s face paint looks amazing. Love your blanket – the grey is perfect! I’m making lots of jewellery at the moment and have loved crocheting wire to an amazing effect with gemstone nuggets incorporated🙂

    Heehee love the barbie photo shoot! I’ve finished crocheting a few amigurumi gifts for some friends. Now that I’m done with that, I guess I have to stop procrastinating and start organising our move back to Australia!

    I love your granny squares! I’m getting inspired to make some!
    Do you have the pattern for the pillow you posted on your last blog? Would you be willing to share it?

    Its a beautiful sunny day here in England, for a change; clear blue sky and not too cold at about 6 degrees C! Fed up now with the gales and oceans of rain we’ve been having, but more due apparantly. At least we haven’t flooded here, unlike many places. I took the chance to pop into the garden just now to have a look round and found some spring flowers starting, so hooray, hooray, spring is on it’s way!! Jen

    I on the New England Coast and we’re revving up for another storm. I opened my emails this AM and saw your sunny bright images of the delicious tomatoes, absolutely yummy looking juice and your crochet project and thought how perfect a snow day that would make for me. Just what need to make & do on a dreary day with a cold coming on. Thank you for the sunlight and inspiration!

    I love your photos. The grannies are beautiful. It seems we all are making grannies here lately. The weather there is making me a bit jealous. We just had a terrible winter storm here with a foot of snow.
