Autumn is in full swing here and the leaves are now falling thick and fast, covering the woodland paths and the verges of the back roads with a carpet of golds, oranges and reds. It has been a fairly mild and damp autumn so far, and many of the toadstools have lasted well. I've seen such a huge variety of them this year and these are just some of the more photogenic ones. I do so love this season, it's a magical time for walking out in the woods and with so much to see I've stayed until I'm tired and chilled, so coming back home into the warm to snuggle with my knitting has been especially welcome.

Pattern writing for the small bears, small mice and small sweaters is progressing and with all of the samples now made and I'm at the stage of taking the step by step photos. Then it will be photo editing, laying out the pages and finally checking everything through. It's a long old process but I'm getting there slowly. I'll keep you posted with news once they're ready.

Well, that's all of my news for this time, see you again soon x

  1. Your photo’s are so beautiful, I love seeing all the fungi. The row of little teds made me smile, I think they look as if they all went off on a picnic, had fun running around, filled their little bellies and lay down for a rest. Thanks for sharing your precious time. Elaine

  2. Thank you for the beautiful photos. I love fungi as much as I like your little rabbits and teddy bears and their lovely clothes.

  7. I love the bears in all of the different colors. They look amazing. I wish that there could be a zoom meeting to knit together. That would be so much fun to see everyone’s great hand work.
