things I love
Crochet hearts and granny squares and windfall apples and the tiny hint of winter in the air. And misty mornings and ooooh I love autumn.
I’m still searching for sloes to make sloe and apple jelly. I’m wandering around hunting out new places to forage for berries. That makes me sound either a) a bit like Ray Mears or b) a bear. But I resent paying for jam when I can make it in an afternoon and have enough to keep me going all year. Plus I have a huge crate of Kilner jars bought in France a couple of years ago and they need to be used before they disappear into the cellar, never to be seen again.
We’ve had a gorgeous weekend in the sunshine with friends who’ve moved from the States to Liverpool for a couple of years (you can see Victoria’s blog here) and I spent Sunday finishing off this granny square blanket:
And yes I did take a photograph of it in an apple tree.
Because I’m a stylish lifestyle blogger and that’s what we do, you know. We take photos of our blankets in apple trees. And apples on our blankets.
And when I make crochet hearts I like to hang them in the garden and go OOH at their gorgeousness. Look, I’m easily amused and I don’t get out much. Humour me. Also that blue and that green and those crochet hearts is just beautiful, and I think all apple trees should be festooned with crochet.
I’ve drawn the winner for the autumn seedball giveaway so go and see if you’ve won!
I’ve been having a pretty amazing week with finding jobs and writing stuff. I’ll write more about that later this week.
