{photo of a couple of new display mats for autumn finds and little vases}

it's time for a new banner and some colour changes here. i always enjoy a little rearrangement...whether it's moving furniture round in the sitting room or tweeking the blog it's that instant satisfaction thing of taking a fresh look at an old space and feeling like i want to be there more.

good in this case because my poor blog has been rather neglected over the summer. autumn is a new leaf however!

i have just picked up c from the airport after waving goodbye him off to ireland on saturday. this left me free to travel new country roads to find miss pickering for a delightfully sunny sunday lunch and natter at oundle mill. i spent the rest of my weekend alone surrounded by fabric projects in front of the telly pausing for the odd nap and snacks of jam on toast by the fire. took a trip to the library and wrote out my months notice for the post office...this time in october i'll be gearing up for my last day at work there.

and finally some new {to me} blog reads...
