Well, summer is slowly saying bye-bye here in the south with lovely cooling days starting to make you mellow. We had one gloriously, hot, hot summer and everyone I know said that they cannot wait for winter! I've had a complete energy collapse, if one could call it that. No energy to do anything or even try. I have never felt this deflated. 

But with all that said, I have tried to make a few things for the market I attend. Although I have had a terrible December market, non-existing January one, at least February seemed to be ok. Sold a few things, even one of the dolls that I have made for the Xmas table. They are so beautiful! I have since decided that in future I will concentrate more on making stuff for myself for a change. I crochet another blanket for my chair and started on a oval mat, then stopped and it is still buried under a lot of plastic bags full of material and wool. Now knitting a nice little pull-over top with bargain wool I found at one of the shops I normally drop into. When it is finished, I hope that it will fit me because I really like the pattern and photo of the top on the model.  I have also started on a few denim bags. I have stared very long at the material for inspiration and then one day just started to cut and sew and that was that. 

We are also busy planning our winter veg garden. The peas have been sown and is coming up nicely. We'll see what will happen when the tortoises find the succulent stems!!

Seems I still have problems loading my photos. My son keeps on tampering with the computer and I think that that might be the problem. Will have to reload the program and start all over again. As I said, I just do not have the energy right now.

Hope all is well in bloggerland and that your days are full and happy!!
