Perfect End to a Holiday

I've had such a lovely week off and I really don't want it to end.

So today I've made the most of the rainy weather and stayed in baking, cooking, knitting and watching 3 discs of Gilmore Girls.

This week has been autumnal...

Its been full of these two ladies...

and to finish off the lovely week off I made a huge breakfast...

Savoury Muffins

Sweetcorn and Chilli Muffins

Curry with Pea Muffins

Pizza Style Muffins.

Home-made Rosti

I also made a huge roast this evening complete with apple crumble, but sadly we gobbled it all up before I could even think about taking photos.

Another bad picture but the colour was inspired by this beautiful lady.

Fabric Shopping Fun

It's taken me far too long to blog about my lovely day fabric shopping with Mum yesterday.

I got really well stocked up for my Autumn/Halloween crafting...

Apologies for the poor photo quality!

I also got a few Yankee Candles :)

Red Polka Dot Love

This year I have absolutely fallen in love with red and polka dots. This season I have the red dress below for work (I am secretly toying with whether to buy the blue one too) and I recently missed out on a red and a blue polka dot mac on Fashion Union which were reduced to £7 each (I was going to have both colours, so gutted!)

So in search for these macs I missed out on or a suitable replacement I came across some gorgeous other red polka dot items and decided to dedicate this post to all things red polka dot.

I found loaddddsss of kitchen things that come in red polka dot and I want them all.
I have a bit of a red theme in my kitchen already, so I am now making it my mission to add lots of these things to my kitchen hehe...

I couldn't help but notice how early the leafs are turning yellow.
As much as I hate the cold I have to admit I truly love Autumn,
in fact I think it might be my favourite season :)

Instead of just letting the season pass me by I decided to take photos of the trees outside my flat everyday to see how their colour changes over time.

I took these Thursday!

and these ones I took Friday!

So it's been exactly 4 months since I blogged.
Its been a tough few months.
With the help of Mum I have come to realise its time to reunite with my blog.

I read this on Crafty Helen and thought 'yes that's exactly what I need to do'

"So, I need to face up to my short-comings
(and boy have I got plenty)
and not spend so much time beating myself up
for having failed to reach my unreasonable expectations"

So here's to a fresh start and knitting squares!
