We are heading into Autumn, the air has started to chill a bit, and next weekend daylight savings ends, the clocks go back and the evenings become shorter
At the moment I’m actually really looking forward to the autumn and winter, cold rainy days mean I can stay home and create constantly. For some weird reason I always have a sense of guilt staying inside when the weather is lovely.
For the past couple of years we have been to FASH which is held at our local town centre. It’s like a destash, mainly for sewers. And luckily enough it was on today!

Yesterday I learnt how to weave flax into flowers as the Maori do. So this evening I've made a small flax flower bouquet for my mam (since I'm potentially going to be unemployed in a few weeks and we are being thrifty hahaha).
I am only a beginner, though I am quite happy with my first wee bouquet , I added some beads to the centres and as the flax dries it will have more shades of green.

“I hear that you’re emigrating to New Zealand. You must be flying to Sydney then, it’s just over the Sydney Harbour Bridge isn’t it?”
Geographically challenged or a soothsayer?
Today on the news there is talk about New Zealand becoming the 7th state of Australia.
It’d be an interesting process that’s for sure….
For example: When Australia claim New Zealanders as one of their own (Phar Lap/Crowded House/Pacifier/Russell Crowe to name a couple) there is such an uproar.
Imagine having to sit back agree that they are Aussies?
The comments on this article should make for an entertaining read.

I’ve made some really cutesy green cotton lacey fingerless mittens which I trimmed with some pretty vintage lace and some frayed pretty green cotton
Then I made a couple of pairs of granny square mittens which I also trimmed with some lovely vintage lace
Where have you got this lovely vintage lace from?
We love it when friends have clean outs and get rid of all their old bits and bobs..... Scroungers? I don't know what you're talking about, is that a shop?
What’s the next crochet project?
My idea for the next couple of nights is to crochet some cycling gloves with lots of big flowers on them for the cycling trip.
I made a start last night and the night before and the night before that too, and then undid them because I couldn’t see how they might look in my head. The picture is too woolly (ha ha ha!) so today I’m looking over pictures to try and solidify it.
Where do you look to see these pictures?
As well as google images I also have a couple of fav places on the internet to look at:
So Gill, there's one more week to go.... do you think you might go insane?
Hmmmm, I've heard it's not far away, however I've had a few trips out and about, (some places twice) so I think I might just hang out in my motel room now with all this lovely yarn and crochet a lariat
Is lariat another name for a noose?
