Here and Now | October 2017

I missed out on last month’s Here and Now and I’m only just making this month’s!  But better late than never Loving //  Spring!  Blue skies and sunshine are making my days and there’s so much new growth in the garden – very exciting and it’s making me very happy
Eating //  Very healthily at the moment as I’m on a Detox to try and help strengthen my immune system
Drinking // 3 litres of water a day, well, most days as part of the Detox
Feeling //  Delighted that our Claret Ash appears to be sprouting new growth half way down one of its limbs.  I’ve despaired of it the last couple of years hoping that we don’t have to take it down.  This could be its saving.
Making // Two quilts showing off two new template sets and hoping they’ll be ready for the wholesale Market in November; one is at the quilters and one has half the blocks made.
Thinking // Socks.  What???? I hear you exclaim.  I know, after last year’s 16 pairs.  But I have this hankering to make another pair of “Muscadine” socks.  I’ve enjoyed wearing my green ones peeking above my short boots and thought a blue pair (and obviously a red pair judging by Friday’s shopping) would be good to have for next Winter.  Besides I need to practice toe-up socks (that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!)
Dreaming // Of Christian Dior couture clothes after a trip to the NGV to view the Dior Exhibiton there on Friday…..and the hour glass figure to go with them!

Linking up with Sarah at Say, Little Hen of Here and Now.

    Oh, look at that bee … definitely Spring! I can’t even begin to fathom how to knit socks, washcloths are about my limit though I am wanting to make my sister a simple shawl for Xmas, I found one with a picot edge which I have done on a washcloth before. Just need to remember how I did that! Love the blue that your socks will be! Meg:)

  2. One can NEVER have too many hand knitted socks Meredithe! I’m glad you made it to link up this month, I missed your post last time 🙂
    Hasn’t the weather been glorious? Although it’s overcast and quite cool here today after a thunderstorm last night, not that I mind this kind of weather one bit either 🙂
    Happy new week!

  3. I must admit I am beginning to think of making some more crocheted socks myself…
