Iced Ginger Cake....

....from Jane Brocket's lovely Vintage Cakes. Just the thing to come home to when you have been buffeted by wind and rain on your Sunday walk....

Heirloom Blanket Ta-Dah!

It's finished! My blanket, which I've been crocheting for.... ohh, forever (actually, since June 2010). And I love it. Oh, I love it so much. It's absolutely enormous - so big that I can't take a proper photo of it. It drapes over the side of our king-size bed, with room to spare. Here it is again, all folded up.
A close-up of the pretty scalloped edging, thanks to the pattern from Lucy at Attic24.
The loveliest thing about my blanket though, is the way it feels. It is so soft and warm, so cosy and comfy. And finished just in time for these chilly autumn nights.

September Days

Life is good. Busy, but good. How could it not be when I have a lovely new Chanel nail polish, when the new series of Downton Abbey starts tonight and when there are rose and violet creams to accompany it?
