Well September went quickly didn’t it? For us, this marks the end of ‘birthday season‘ and the start of ‘its nearly Christmas‘ ….. yes, that’s right, Christmas. It’s only been two minutes since last Christmas so clearly it’s time for the shops to be full of advent calendars and wrapping paper! 🙂 Anyway, time marches on regardless of how much sarcasm I throw at it so back to the crafty shenanigans of September which include sewing, knitting, reading, more knitting, more reading and oh yes, it was my birthday 🎉 This year my birthday meant I was able to join the ‘perfect seams’ gang with an overlocker! If you love sewing then you’ll understand my absolute excitement at having one of these bad boys and if you’re not quite grasping my excitement then to be honest, is there any hope for you?!? 😂 So now I’ve taken my sewing up a level just in time for Christmas. Ooh, what a nice little coincidence!
The return of the cold weather has also meant I’ve been knitting like nobody’s business. Mainly scarves but I’m about to cast on a no-frills sweater from Ravelry.
Now, I may have mentioned this before but I’m a self confessed book addict. Not just a book a week but quite often, a book a day and this month I’ve gotten through quite a few paperbacks, all from the crime genre (obviously!).
Book #1 – Paper Ghosts by Julia Heaberlin
Book #2 – Snap by Belinda Bauer
Book #3 – Where The Missing Go by Emma Rowley
Book #4 – Did You See Melody by Sophie Hannah
All superbly written but if you’re only going to read one then make it Snap. An absolutely brilliant book that gets you right from the first page and will make you want to read it all in one go.
So that’s September all done with until next time and now comes October, stomping it’s way through the autumn leaves. Hope it’s a wonderful one 🙂
