This week

I've had quite a busy week so I'll just share some photos.

Clouds rolling in. This is from the window which is why the aerial is in the middle!

Another lovely sunset.

This tree is in my neighbour's garden, with red and also some green leaves.

This is the crochet Minion that I'm making for my niece and nephews, here is the body.

This is the beginning of the trousers but it went a bit wrong, it's not flat! I think it will be OK though as it will be attached to the body.

I hope you've all had a good week. Thank you for the comments on my last post, I'm pleased to report that both nan's are feeling much better.

Taking in the Autumnal colours

Yesterday was a busy day! I help my Mum on Mondays, looking after the children and helping with the housework and cooking. I also take my sister's dogs out for a walk in the morning and I had to go to the pharmacy so I went to the local common, which is across the road. I wanted to get some photos of the Autumnal colours. I only had my phone camera and the dogs kept pulling so quite a few of the photos were blurred but I did manage to get some good ones!

Looking towards the woods from the road.

There were still a few blackberries around.

Lovely Autumnal colours.

Evergreen against Deciduous.

There were lots of lovely berries, I didn't manage to to get a photo of the bushes covered in orange and red berries though.

I love the green and yellow together.

Brown leaf litter.

I like this purple/red leaf.

It's been a bit of a funny week, my nan has been unwell and I haven't heard about anything else all week! It's been draining. My other nan had a small heart attack on Saturday but is home now and seems to be ok.

I hope you've all had a good week.

Red sky at night

There have been lovely sunsets the past couple of nights.

13th November

A while back I found a pattern to crochet minions. My niece and nephew love the Despicable Me films so I thought this would be a perfect make for their Christmas presents. I'm not very quick at crocheting and didn't have the time to start until last Sunday. 

This is the first attempt. The pattern only makes it this big, I wanted it bigger so I played around with it a bit but it didn't look right so I unpicked it!

I then did it differently and have got this so far, I think it's the right size now. I may have done some of the stitches wrong as I kept losing count (which is why I've got the pin now)! This bit will be covered so it's ok.

I will post an update once I've made some progress, hopefully it will be finished for Christmas! 

I hope you've all had a good couple of weeks, I didn't realise my last post was nearly two weeks ago.
