It's true...the nights are drawing in and autumn is here...I've finished another little quilt....very basic, just 2 large pieces of fabric with some cotton and bamboo batting sandwiched in-between...perfect for snuggling underneath on chilly evenings, with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book (and a cat )...bliss !
The yellow roses are still blooming...this is a rose called The Pilgrim and is my favourite yellow rose as it's so clean and delicately coloured .....with the most delicious Tea scent and myrrh fragrance...
Now to make tonight's dinner....vegetables from the allotment and some pasta...autumn is not so bad after all !
Wishing you all a good week !

just a peek at my little terrarium...
a nice place to display treasures....
My lovely new book...
Living Life Beautifully by Christina Strutt
Autumn is definitely coming...
here we have enjoyed a lovely, warm late summer but now it's time to think about lighting candles ...getting out your cosy woolly socks...making sure you have enough warm blankets to snuggle under (can't have too many!) ...and thinking about indoor projects....
like trying to sew an item of clothing...perhaps a tunic ? wish me luck ...if it turns out well it may appear on these pages !
Have a lovely evening !

The purple shawl is made from beautiful 4ply baby alpaca ...so soft and nice....my lovely friend bought me the wool for my birthday back in May ....the shawl is an easy pattern...with just 4 stitches to increase on alternate rows ...and when finished just right to wear as the sun goes down... till dusk we stayed on the beach ...then happily packed up and returned home... a perfect late summer evening...!
Sending you all love and best wishes...Gail x

I finished my little quilt....and I think the title of this post says it all ! hehe...well it is my first ever quilt...Treacle the cat liked it so much I found it hard to keep her off it...so I had to make her a little mini-quilt for her basket....of course she completely ignores that one and chooses to sleep on the full size version....
Have a lovely week !
