First thing this morning I have an appointment, then once I get home from that.... I'm cutting out fabric for soup bowl cosy's.

ABOVE:  I laid out 24 colour combinations last night!  I'm not saying I will necessarily be sewing 24 cosy's, but I will try!

I'm down to 6, so I really do need to get more made.

Also on the 'to do' list is more Wonky House Runners (only got 2 made), and perhaps some Autumn Toned Tree Runners.

Actually, I might just do an Autumn Tree Runner first, cos I'm a bit excited about doing it.  *smiles*

ABOVE:  Griffin was Mr. Popular last night!  These two jumped on him the second he sat down!  Too cute.

Coco has been in a cone for a month, she made a mess of her rump.  I took it off her last night, so am praying she's not made a mess of herself overnight!   

I will go check on her in a minute to see.  Fingers crossed!

SHARON!!!!!  OMG just how many blog posts did you catch up on last night Chick????  Too funny, but lovely to see you back.  Don't stress about 'catching up'.. remember you have a holiday to get ready for!  Lucky tart.

Now... I'm getting up and starting my day.  Catch ya later.


8.20 am:  Phew!  What a wet and windy night we had!  Sounds like lots of the country had it too, and it's not over yet.

I'm loving the wild weather of course, I love a good storm.

ABOVE:  I absolutely LOVE watching this tree change colours over autumn!  Such pretty foliage.
While I was taking these photos, a little visitor popped in to say 'Hi'.  Stew and I always feel like his Mum is visiting when we get a fantail pop in...

ABOVE:  She didn't stay long enough for me to get a really good photo... but isn't she gorgeous.

Right I better go... got stuff to be doing.

3 pm:  And today has been an up day for me!  I might have some news to impart in the next few days.
Time will tell.
In the meantime... I've laid out a large Autumn Tree Runner, but it needs tweeking (new idea).

I made a Placemat to try out the new idea first:

ABOVE:  My Autumn Tree Placemat.  

I had thought of varying the 'style' of trees, but that just didn't look good, so I stuck with my usual tree shape.  But ... there is a 'naked' tree!  What do ya think???

ABOVE:  Bit smokey in me house.  I'm burning cooking steak for dinner.

Steak... yeah nah.  Not good at cooking that stuff and I don't even like it.
Stew and Griffin seemed to enjoy it though... so can't have been too bad.

I'm done for the day... time to chill out.


  1. We have several fantasies here love listening to them and watch them flit from tree to tree when I see monarch butterflies I say hello to my grandma have a good day Chris

  2. Love the selection of fabrics for the soup warming bowls.. Such awesome clours .

    Those 2 and Griffin too cute for words !! They know who to target dont they?? Fabulous wee things they are.
    Love the tree colours first quick glance I thought Kowhai then had a proper look are they Like a buttercup Acacia tree Chris??

    Love the changing colours too Makes everything look bright n cheery !!

    Cheers !!

  3. Love the autumn colours and the bare tree is a cute wee addition.

    Love the place mat and colours, maybe another naked tree or a bit of one poking out in between would look good. I love those runners..

    Love, love, love the autumn trees! The other runners always remind me of Xmas, but this is gorgeous and definitely an all year round one for use. Liz

    Love the naked tree!

  9. I love the new color scheme. I like the naked tree to. I think it makes perfect sense and it is cute, but maybe don't put a naked tree in EVERY autumn runner. Some with / some without.

    1. I'm not sure about the naked tree... I think it just looks like a tree that's died because fur trees are evergreen. Just my thoughts. Your tree runners and wonky houses are great though!

  15. Opps, my comment posted as a reply to another comment... didn't mean to do that! You are very clever and artistic :)

  16. Haha BUT BUT I HAVE heaps reading and comments inside of me i just know it x
