and into Autumn...

And so into Autumn, enjoying the long shadows, cooler days, the way everything looks when the sun in low. Truth is, whilst I love the summer, I am more of a cooler climate kind of girl and being prepared for the elements. 

Round here we have been huddling together for warmth, some with less subtly than others.

Marvelling at those who brave the sea whatever the weather when I even find it far too cold in the height of August.

We have been making fruit crumbles, perfecting the ratio of fruit to crumble. Which appears to be 1:100 incase you want to try it.

Doing a lot of sewing in the dark, the light is awful now, it compliments my awful quilting as I tackle my least favourite part of making a quilt and head towards my favourite: the binding.

This week I have been reminiscing about eiderdowns and my head is filled with the idea of making one, mostly for my daughter who is already buried under a deep layer of duvets and blankets on her bed. My granny had them, and there is something so very wholesome and cozy about the thought of making one. Although I suspect it would be a feather field quilting disaster waiting to happen. Has anyone made one or seen a good tutorial?

Hope you are enjoying Autumn wherever you are.


  1. I did giggle at the crumble... bet it was yum!

    1. It was! far more successful than previous crumbles!... I will definitely make it again :)
