Well it's the first day of Blogtoberfest and here I am with my first post - 1 down 30 to go!
Not too much to talk about really.
I picked these freesias from my garden today, I think they are so Spring- like and just smell heavenly! The boys were destroying them with soccer ball retrieval stomping through the garden so they are better off in my jar.

I recently got this beautiful book, it has some really nice inspiring retro type patterns in it.

I'm having a go at this tablecloth at the moment, I think looks lovely and kind of gypsy - retro.
Nice for a Christmas pressie?

This is cute, I love the tea cosy, even though I'm not really a tea drinker.

And I really like this bobbley bag, I'm thinking one in red or aquamarine would be just spiffy, I may just have to make both!
There's lots of other nice things in this book, me thinks it will get a good working over in the coming months. I have also ordered a couple of super cute Japanese crochet books from here, can't wait to get them, I'll do a show and tell!
Have a great day, and I'll be back tomorrow with something (not sure what though!)


  1. Looks like a great book. I love Japanese crochet books so I'm looking forward to seeing which you get and what you think.

  2. I love that bag :) Red would be very nice, I agree :)

  3. That book looks fabulous--I'll have to keep an eye for it.

  4. That looks a great book, I agree the bag looks fantastic. I saw my first japanese crochet book at a knit and natter group yesterday and came straight home and ordered one, I just hope I am up to following the diagrams, I may be begging for some advice next week when I realise it's way over my head. x

  5. OOh lovely crochet inspiration. Will definitely add the book to my wish list. Good luck with the blogging challenge! Cx

  6. I have this book too, must get around to actually making something, not just drooling!
