Hi Autumn

Well sorry to break it to you folks but, at the risk of sounding like a sad Susan, I think summer may well be over. Β It’s raining as I write this and *gasp* I’ve had to pop the heating on! Yes, summer has well and truly given way to autumn. Panic not though because as the nights draw in and the risk of frostbite returns to quite literally nip us on the toes, the making season returns too Β πŸ™‚

Summer may be made for lazing in the sunshine but autumn is the season of starting new projects. New jumpers, new cardigans, new scarves; they all jump on the needles ready to be made in time for the winter and lets face it, we had a wonderful run of summer this year so I’m sure the weather gods will make sure we have a super cold winter to make up for it. Oh, and don’t forget new quilts! Just the thought of it makes me giddy Β πŸ™‚

So, what did we do this summer? Painting! Lots and lots of painting. Making things took a complete back seat to redecorating this summer and instead of buying half of HobbyCraft or WoolWarehouse, this time it was all about Farrow and Ball (Stiffkey Blue if you were wondering) and other lovely housey things. My crafting was limited to a couple of pairs of trousers, a skirt or two, a quilt, some socks and a few random drawings. Nice to be busy though!

Anyway, this autumn keep an eye out for the new ‘How To Crochet’ guide starting on CraftyMrsRiley as well as many more wonderful new makes and tutorials and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram (@craftymrsriley) πŸ™‚
