The weather has been awful by us but on the plus side I have been able to curl up by the fire with my crochet and dare I say it... a mince pie!! I've finished a buggy blanket for my little one but as you can see it seems to have been adopted by our Purdy cat who has been a real home bird since our other cat died. I've also made a scarf for my eldest using some lovely soft yarn and am now making some crochet robins thanks to Attic24's tutorial (the best crochet blog ever...thanks so much!). I attended a crochet course at Marmalade Yarns in Frome and I can highly recommend it, even if you know crochet already they have the best selection of tempting yarns I've ever seen so do pop along if you're around. Hope its not too rainy and wild outside by you.....perhaps I should have a mulled wine to go with the mince pie?

Puss in Boots and a Sad Farewell

A few weeks ago we lost our beloved pusscat Milton and we have been looking for another kitten that we can bestow our affection on and spoil. Here is our new little fluff who we are collecting on Friday. She is a blue and cream british shorthair from a lovely lady in Salisbury and we are all very excited about it..but we haven't decided on a name yet..any ideas welcomed!!Have a good week everyone.

'The' Fair!

What a day!

The stalls were set up beautifully with all sorts of tempting things as you can see from the pictures (apologies for some blurriness...some were taken by my excited daughter!). We had a lovely and profitable day so thanks so much to the wonderful organisers and the tearoom helpers who kept me supplied with caffeine! Here's to the next one!

Just a quick reminder (as if you need it!) about 'The Vintage and Handmade Fair' tomorrow in Chipping Sodbury from 10-4. Entrance is free and there will be tons of wonderful stuff to buy! I'll take some pics for those of you who can't make it. I've had a mad rush to get everything done but I think its all sorted now!

Well Halloween has been and gone for another year. I was working in Bea and Evie yesterday on the hill and later we all ventured into the crowds outside. It was so busy with all the shops packed with trick and treaters but we managed to procure some sweets, enter our pumpkins into the competition and have a couple of mulled wines (hence the dodgy photos!). Hope you all enjoyed the festivities.....
