Its a beautiful sunny day here in the Sussex countryside - heartwarmingly bright - a joy to be here!
I couldn't resist showing you these:-
still flowering on my doorstep - don't think they have realised it is Autumn. Also look at these:-
I'm a bit of a Sunflower girl, me, whenever we go to France on holiday in the summer , I can't wait to see the fields of Sunflowers and my family are used to me "going on" about happy sunflowers (heads up) and sad sunflowers (heads down) - well the ones in my conservatory are certainly happy - makes you want to drink in the lovely yellow colour before we get to the dark days ahead.
Daisyfish left me a nice message asking about the yarn I used for my summer garden blanket and cushion.
Its Cygnet DK in 100g balls and is 100% acrylic. I was looking for a supply of wool which isn't too expensive and came across this in my local Hospice Shop - I have seen it in other Hospice Shops and so I think they must get a special rate. It is under £2.50 for a 100g ball so is dead cheap to make blankets and comes in a brilliant array of colours, and of course, it's helping to raise funds for the Hospice. I do allow myself to splash out on Rowan or Debbie Bliss sometimes, but I wouldn't be able to make as many things due to budget!
Update on the baby cot blanket - last night I quickly made a swatch
There are two different types of cluster in there to experiment - am undecided about this one so will make a couple more swatches to see if they please me more.
Whatever you are up to today, have a good one!
