New Season,New Project

I know it's not officially Autumn yet, but I always feel like the return to school heralds a new season.

The days are getting shorter and today we woke to a misty ,Autumnal feeling, morning....

The spiders had been busy in the garden ,making LOADS of cobwebs.Loving this one ,with water droplets clinging to its beautiful design........

We have had an excellent, fun ,summer. The six weeks really did seem to fly.I must admit though ,to enjoying a few hours today,with no one to please but myself.

I popped out for a little light shopping .On the way home I made a detour and travelled down the pretty country lanes. It felt really good to catch up with this favourite spot . To see how it looked this September..... Love,love love this traditional farmyard,with its old buildings.....

and this barn............

Berries in the hedgerows........

and happy looking chickens......

Back home ,with no distractions,I got my camera out again.By my computer there is a growing pile of colourful circles........

Would you like a better look,hope so . Let's go outside ....

That's better.... I'm having such fun making these. Combining any three colours I fancy to make a pretty circle. I'm following this tutorial.

When I saw this blanket I wanted one myself. Isn't it stunning!!!!

It's great to be able to use any colours I fancy after Having to use boy colours in my granny stripe.......

Yes I am having a ball with my colourful circles........

I'm also making sure I catch in the ends as I go.....

It's not the neatest way ,I know but such a time saver .I've made 45 so far , that's a quarter of the total I need. I'm no where near fed up with these yet,so hopefully it wont take ages to get there.

There are still a couple of days left to join my cushion cover give away just leave a comment Here.

I'll get the boys to pick a name out of the hat on Friday. Good Luck Everybody.
