Nature in the home

How beautiful, if not a bit blustery has our Autumn been so far? I was out in the countryside visiting patients today and the sun was shining a glorious yellow through all the countryside autumnal coloured leaves, I felt like I was on a bit of a nature high :o)

When I stopped to have my sandwich at about 1pm I pulled over and found a pretty woodland spot to potter around in and found these pretties to contribute to Lou of Little Green Shed's new season Nature in the Home series. I have loved seeing the previous series on various blogs and have been waiting to take part.

As you can see my crochet goes out in the car with me. 10 minutes to eat my sandwich, 10 minutes to potter about in the woodlands and fresh air and 10 minutes to do another row of the new cotton baby blanket I am making for my sister-in-law who is expecting her second baba in March next year.

I do hope that all these beautiful days of the earth changing her colours is inspiring you whether it be Spring or Autumn. Enjoy!

See you all soon

  2. Beautiful nature collage on your lovely blue crochet! Lucky sister-in-law :)

  3. What a lovely way to spend your lunchtime and a look much better than sitting at your desk. If you rearrange the seeds a little there is a face there! I do love seeing the changing colours. Happy crochet xx

  4. Thank you for playing! I love your blog - so pretty! x

  5. I'm glad, Penny, that you have pointed out the glorious beauty of autumn. It's a season which, in some ways, can be perceived as a transition between summer and the run-up to the Festive Season and, unfortunately, can slip by all too fast. What a glorious season it is!

    Warm wishes from France,


  6. I love that you break up your lunchtime into pottering about and crochet, that is the perfect way to invigorate yourself for the rest of the day.

  7. It has been nasty here in Ohio the last few days. Cold, rainy, sleety, snowy. I love that beautiful photo of the leaves and seeds with that gorgeous blue crochet behind it. Brilliant.

  8. Hello! This is my first visit to your lovely blog. Thanks for visiting mine - you've inspired me to give crochet another go too :)
