I can take several walks from the house so it is really interesting to see how much changes each time I pass that way.

I have also been fairly active on the crafting front, so a photo round up of some of the things I have been making. I have finished my socks!
I have started going along to a 'knit and natter' session at Farfield Mill, the group meets every Tuesday 1 - 3pm in the cafe. I found out about the group when I went to the felting exhibition that I mentioned in a previous entry. The group of people who go along are really lovely and welcoming, and are very happy to share their expertise on the knitting side and also happy to natter away and make you feel very much at ease within the group.
I've made a few new shopping bags...
I also made a few note book covers.
The felting class I go along to has now finished until the autumn, but over the term I have tried out some new techniques and made a cobweb felt scarf
and a couple of pod bowls.
It was a little friends birthday, and every little girl needs bunting especially if it spells out their name!
M and C have been home for a weekend from Uni - they didn't manage to coincide their visits but it was lovely to see them both - even though they had to spend part of the weekend working as they had deadlines coming up.
Having missed being at home for her birthday the previous week, C and I made a belated cake to celebrate her birthday! We used the Hummingbird Bakery blueberry cake recipe, with a few little alterations - we didn't make a cream cheese frosting as I didn't have any cream cheese in, so instead just made glace icing and let it dribble down the sides of the cake - delish!
Hope you are enjoying the sunny weather!
