october on instagram

So I finally joined facebook and instagram.
I know - late to the party huh?!?!
But as Mrs Madrigal would say*
'You don't have to keep up dear,
you just have to keep open…' 

Here's what's been going on instagram this month...

October is the time for our rams to join their ladies at the museum.
Are they not the most beautiful furry ears you've ever seen?

Autumn sunshine on pine bark.

2 kinds of kale ready to go to the restaurant kitchens.

My lovely friends bought me a kindle for my birthday
- so I knitted up a cosy cover for it.

The birthday was a big one, so Mr AP and I headed off to Barcelona to celebrate.
A lady needs a fan in southern europe - this little wooden beauty cost one euro.

I whipped up a few prototype spelt corn dollies for Siân
- she was having a craft emergency!

…and finally, my favourite autumn poem by the fabulous John Hegley.

The winds of change are blowing as we head into November.
Snuggle up!   xxxxx

what's a girl to do?

I was, for various professional reasons,
trying to have a hiatus from putting daft pictures of myself on here.
But then one day you wake up and realise….

Oh shit - I'm turning into Grayson Perry!!!

Do you have a 'bad hair day alter ego'?
(mine used to be Ken Dodd, so Grayson is an improvement)
