Hello everyone, here we are on the first day of Autumn, my very favourite season of all. Last night the moon was incredible, lighting up the countryside, casting it's gleam on everything. Truly magical. (BTW the photo above was edited by me, but the image was from Google - my photography skills are not quite this good!)
I just cant wait to see those autumn colours over the next few weeks! At the moment I'm looking for a scene to photograph each week to log the changing colours - some of you joined me in the Autumn Photo Challenge last year, it was so lovely to see how the colours changed week by week. I got the idea from an American website which charts the weekly progress of autumn in New England.
So I must give apologies to my lovely Autumn Swap partner - hopefully will be ready to post off my parcel to you by the end of next week.
Anyway, I have been continuing with my crochet. I found this lovely yarn, which is made in Turkey
It reminded me so much of a pumpkin! The silver pumpkin is part of my growing pumpkin collection, I just love 'em.
And here is what I made - Autumn Cushion #2:
It is such a lovely texture, very comfy and cosy
just the thing for snuggling up with on a chilly autumn evening!
Well, must away and hang more washing out - it is a lovely, sunny, breezy early autumn day here. Later on I am going to make a bread and butter pudding, my DH saw one on a TV cooking show last week and has been going on and on (and on and on and on) about it. This though is an angel cake I made a couple of weeks ago having seen it made (with mixed results) on Great British Bake Off (one of my "must watch" TV shows at the moment)
It worked out quite well, the inside of the cake was delightfully light and fluffy
It didn't hang around very long - this slice was eaten seconds after I took the photo!
Have a lovely Sunday.
