    November 2019

    What a month, in addition to my normal classes I had to prepare for two ArtSpace G41 Christmas Fayres which meant I was crocheting like mad. I’ve put pictures of some of the items I’ve made this month at the bottom of this post.

    Where is the time running away to? It’s been a busy month in the Ceefer Crafts home, daughter’s birthday and a short trip to family ate up the first third of the month.

    This is the third time I’ve brought paper flowers into the residential craft classes, the first time we used crepe paper and the second we made tropical flowers.

    September 2019

    Apart from my classes it’s been fairly quiet month on the crafting side. Been finishing off unpacking and most of remaining my free time has been spent in the garden.

    All the Rs

    Continuing tidying the fruit section of the left hand border, I renovate the Redcurrant bush, remove some rampaging Raspberries and reposition some Rhubarb. And that’s enough of the alliteration.

    Odds and ends

    We’ve been popping into garden centres the last few weeks in case there were any end of season bargains that could be useful for next year’s gardening and I’ve discovered my daughter is a pity gardener; she likes to rescue plants from the clearance section. So we’ve got a few unplanned acquisitions. I find that plants either thrive or die when I’m looking after them so we’ll have to see how they do.

    Bramble patch

    Day 3. For the first few days I worked the border from the house towards the back gate, I didn’t want to continue that as next up was the raspberries which were just starting to fruit. So instead I started from the back gate, which had weeds coming in from the back lane and worked back towards the house.

    Just a little brute strength

    Day 2 in the garden, tidying the first section of the border had taken me up to the Winter Flowering Jasmine. It had grown through & over one of the lavenders overflowing onto the path.
