#NaNoWriMo | "A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit." Richard Bach .  My post over on the blog today is how I am dealing with #NaNoWriMo. I am finding that my #buletjournal is helping in more ways than I thought it would so I will continue to expand on using it throughout the month.   I'm getting slightly addicted to stamps and it is helping to spark creativity when I am having a dry spell. I also find playing with colours the best way to change my mood when I need to write…

'SHROOM | You all know how much I love finding mushrooms but these little beauties are sprinkled all over my garden. This one has a little crack and I mamaged to get the light through it.  Yes its still cold and damp in Ireland.

Knitting in the Wild | Hiding in her Commons Cowl is @jstknitweardesigns patiently waiting for me to hurry up and take a picture! It was really cold outside St. Patrick's but oh what a beautiful place when the light is with you.  If you pop over to her instagram you can pic up a discount for one of her patterns from the London Spires collection that I had the privilege of shooting.  Have a great weekend folks. I'm off exploring what are you up to?

Handknit Wardrobe | I have been yapping on a bit about my wardrobe but it really is an old chest of drawers with folded handknits in all of my favourite yarns.   I was trying to nab an amazing Instagram image that was floating around my head but K just wanted to be in the picture and so we have this.   If you want to see what the garments are you can pop over to my blog and check out my series on my "Handmade Wardrobe" and yes there is a separate one for kids too.   I'm having itchy knitter…

This isn't a typical image for me. I've reached that point in my novel that I guess is what is referred to as the soggy middle. I'm finding it hard to write today. The girls won't stop fighting they are constantly screaming and when I try to retreat into my book well they just get louder.  Send all the coffee for today feels very blue. You can catch up on all #nanowrimo over on my blog.

Winter  Seascape | I nabbed this image on the way home from the school run today. There is an area I pass each day that gives you this exact peek of the shoreline. The clouds are in and everything is reflecting just how cold it is.   Yesterday the weather took a plunge and I have never been so thankful that the insulation job was finished because this seaside cottage is noticeably warmer. Cross your fingers for me that we can move into our bedroom soon!   What's the weather like where you…

Baby Knits | If you pop over to the blog today you will see two of my favourite baby knits.  Since I'm writing my handmade wardrobe series this month I realised that I tend to knit similar patterns with similar shaping over and over again. Do you do this? What are your favourite patterns?  .  Today's post has been written in my new office! It's not finished and my desk is currently held up by two shoe boxes on nightstands but that's ok right???? . Yarn: @hedgehogfibers sock Pattern left…

Irish Coast | To me there isn't anything more calming than a walk on the coast. I love the sound of the waves the colour of the water and how the light changes.   I see the same coastline every day and each day it's different. When I want to change my mood or take a break from knitting/writing/projects I take a walk on the beach and come back and try again.   Where do you find your calm moments every day?
