Mrs Diadem, poached eggs, blankets and pouches...

Monday, 5 September 2011

Here are the new pouches. Two JINKS in Marmite Eco Tan in the shop here...


And whilst packing the tent away for the winter we found the prettiest Diadem spider. Look she has a lace doily on her back... She was as fat as a pea!


Here is the blurred 'get away' picture...


And look at those spinarets... 


Beauty...


Perfect camouflage...


And I did indeed make bread and apple pie for tea. We had fresh eggs from the hens, poached in Mums egg poacher which she bought when she was first married way back in the 1960's. It has a red metallic lid and I love it! I borrowed it from Dad so the children could taste a little bit of nostalgia with me...


Nothing beats a good poached egg on buttered toast...

We helped Mr F with logs, again getting the shed filled up ready for the coming Winter. Im remembering all of that snow and piercing cold... We ended the evening by lighting the fire for the first time this season and watching Jane Eyre together, eating apple pie and toasting Marshmallows on the embers.

I carried on with my new blanket and am happy to say that it is growing nicely!


Awful picture but you get the idea! Its mainly Shetland wool so its oiled from a cone and will only fluff up once its been washed (fulled).


And the completed Dolly Mixture blanket....


With a little detail to finish!

Right Im off now to play Rummy with littlest, then finish the last episode of Jane Eyre (with crochet hook...) then cook tea...

Photographing new shoes tomorrow to list at midday.... cant wait to show everyone what Ive made!

  3. Love the poached eggs, love the pouches, love love the blankets (have two blankets on the go myself and one is a giant granny square, too) TRYING to appreciate the beauty of Mrs. Diadem! Envious of your cozy firelit evening. Oh, how I wish the weather here would cool down and summer would loosen it's grip. Looking forward to the shoes! Saving my pennies!

  5. Oh, so that is what that spider is called! We have a beautiful Mrs Spider who is even bigger than yours who everynight re weaves her web outside my kitchen window, and I watch her while I do my washing up :)

  6. So very right about poached eggs. Is it the change in weather that has made me long for them this week? Your crochet looks just about perfect for autumn too.
