Cosy Comfort


Today the post brought a lovely surprise - it was a knitty, crochet bundle of colour and softest wool....
Like many bloggers I am always envious when I read a post where someone owns one of these ....





but now I am the proud owner of these beautiful pieces of work....



My cosy conservatory reading corner just got cosier...



as if this wasn't enough of a surprise there were also these lovely aran knit soft wrist warmers, perfect for the Autumn and likely to get lots of wear on winter walks in the woods too....being worn around the house today just because they are so snuggly...



These pretty goodies were a surprise from Nana -
 thankyou so much for these pressies - I love them.

  1. You are a very lucky lady . I am making these blankets as presents for my family . Christmas presents .
    My right arm is quite painful from crochet but it is such a lovely pastime and a change from quilting . I want my family to be wrapped in love .

    1. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you will show your crochet work after the gifts have been given - what better way to make someone feel wrapped in love - I like that thought. Betty x

    1. More than liked the blanket - I really am very lucky to have you for a blogging buddy. My wristwarmers have made a real difference this week as I do get cold hands all the time - so snuggly - Ambercat likes them too.

    1. Yes, I imagine in your farm there would be lots of cosy blankets to keep drafts out - and open fires too?

  9. Hi Betty
    Nice to meet you and welcome to my dog blog. We hope to see you again. What a lovely thing you do working with rescue dogs. Three cheers for giving your time to such a noble cause.
    We think that the right dog will find you. One day maybe when you are least expecting it there he/she will be and you will know. Life can be strange that way.
    See you next post. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. HI Molly I am honoured that you visited as you are a busy dog with blog! I hope you will come by and leave your opinion from time to time. I will wait for the right dog - I think you're right - our eyes will meet and we will both know when I encounter the right doggy for me. In the meantime I love my doggy walks.

  10. Betty, I am soooo sorry to hear about your shoulder! I do hope you are on the mend. The pumpkin paintings are amazing and I can't quite believe you can paint like that with an injury, you are amazingly talented. Love those colours.

    What a beautiful present. Perfect for snuggling up in the wintertime.
