Bluebell Walk

For the past couple of years I’ve not been able to get out for a walk in our local Bluebell woods. Timings just didn’t work and before I knew it, the flowers were past their best and I was too late. This year I prioritised, and me and my husband took a short trip to see what we could find. We were not disappointed!

An Autumn Holiday

I realised it’s been a month since I last posted on here. Everything got a little too busy with yarn shows, yarn updates, winding & dyeing the Advent/December boxes, and various other things I won’t bore you with. This post is a long one, so settle down and grab a cup of something warm while you read. I’ve made the photos small as there’s a fair few of them, but if you want to see them bigger you can click… Read More »An Autumn Holiday

Adventures in Bristol

You may have noticed I’ve not been around online much during the last couple of weeks. I was house & pet sitting for my parents in Bristol and turned it into a bit of a holiday. The first week was so hot I didn’t do a great deal apart from keep the pets alive! I did manage a few early morning walks to a place with what I think are the best views over the city, and the landscape to… Read More »Adventures in Bristol

Summer Wool Festival Preparations – Day 3 (Wednesday)

I’ve had a wonderfully productive day today! This is only a short post though as I’ve got a busy evening ahead. I finished making and price labelling all my stitch markers. I’ve cut out a load of yarn labels that I decided need to be refreshed and also cut out the leaflets and signs. I started packing my “show stuff” box, which gets filled with all the little things I may need like hooks, clips, tape, business cards etc. I… Read More »Summer Wool Festival Preparations – Day 3 (Wednesday)

Summer Wool Festival Preparations – Day 2 (Tuesday)

I’ll be honest, today wasn’t the most thrilling in terms of things to tell you about. I spent the morning printing out all the graphics I created yesterday along with a big pile of Advent order forms and leaflets. I had to redesign a few of the graphics as they weren’t printing very clearly but I got there in the end. After lunch I I went for a walk along the river. The water was low and has been flowing… Read More »Summer Wool Festival Preparations – Day 2 (Tuesday)

A Walk on Melbury Downs

I’ve had a busy few days since my last post, but I’ll try not to let this get too long! I’ve been working on a couple of craft projects but I think I’ll leave them for posts of their own. Running I try to go running three times a week, pretty early in the morning (7am-ish). I’m not fast, and I don’t go for miles, but I enjoy it and it’s made me fitter. I only started running at the… Read More »A Walk on Melbury Downs

Back to Blogging?

I’ve noticed a few people across various social media platforms lately say they wish we could get back to blogging. They’re sick of everything being videos and suggested posts, while not being able to find the content they actually want to see and read. I’ve been pondering the idea of a vlog for a while now, but it’s difficult to do for me for various reasons. So I thought, why not try a blog? With just under four weeks to… Read More »Back to Blogging?
