Well, October happened, didn’t it? We were busy, as are most families with kids, but it was a great month. The weather was spectacular! For once it feels as though we’ve had a proper fall and not just leaped from summer into winter.
Our golden is really starting to show her age lately and I need to make a consistent effort to take her for more short walk to keep her limbs and joints in shape. Who am I kidding? I need it just as badly as her.
Stitching is a constant in my life, I’m a happier person and much nicer to be around (John knows full well…) when I make time every day to put a few stitches or rounds into something. These are two recent favourites, Northern Expression’s “Shades of Wine” and Nancy’s Needle design “Starry Skies”, a canvas piece that I have trouble putting down.
Until Christmas though, they are going to have to take a back seat to my Christmas knitting. Which, as you can see…..
hasn’t been going to plan. Eventually this will be a Scalene shawl for my SIL. Don’t worry, she never reads my blog and I made her unfollow me on Instagram until after the holidays 😉
I’ve missed this space, I hope to find my rhythm again with a more regular posting. I hope you are all well and enjoying time with friends and family. xo
