Time is flying by ..

and the energy levels seem to be waning along with the Summer weather.  This week has been a real mixture of scudding clouds, sunny spells, gale force winds and very variable temperatures.  I'm not quite ready to put my lighter clothes away but must confess to a slight delight at the prospect of opaque tights, boots and black clothes - instant slimming without the deprivation!

My crafting fervour has been a little dull of late too but I did manage to finish my scraps cushion made out of the odds and ends from the blanket that weren't long enough for a complete row 

I finished it off with an old jumper of my son's, five little buttons and blanket stitch all around the edges.

and the blanket is coming along nicely - not long now and I think I can start doing the edge.  This is it doubled over - am really happy with the mix of colours and it's so relaxing to do in the evening -and it keeps my feet warm on these progressively chilly evenings!

Well, the work 'Every Body Counts' campaign starts tomorrow - we have to register each day for 30 minutes of 'exercise' - fortunately, gardening is included so that will probably be my contribution to the team effort but I'd better stock up on naughty stuff tonight as I plan to be eating healthy for the next two months (not sure how that is going to fit with a trip to the States later this month but don't they say, it's the thought that counts?) No?

  3. Love the cushion, that's true thriftiness. Have to agree about the opaque tights and boots. Don't want to say cheerio to the summer, but I do love Autumn clothes.

  4. I love the colours on your blanket - struggling to choose the right ones for mine. I also love the colours on the lovely little round cushion behind it. Up to today, still able to wear my Birkies but it`s all downhill weatherwise next week, allegedly:(


Thanks - I love to read your comments x
