Cosy Corner

I thought I would share my corner with you today, Rose Cottage is so full of muddles, mess and dust that cosy corner is worth soooo much to me at the moment. This is where I enjoy the silence during the school day, where I crochet and knit, where I write my blog, where I sit and read stories with Miss A after school, where Mstr H tells me of his day and where Mr H and I curl up when the day is nearly done - a very important little corner of our cottage!

I have my eye on a corner that I plan to make my own one day when there is no plasterboard littering the hall and when the unpacked boxes find a home, but that is a long way off just now so this little corner has to be many things. Today it's a special corner because the sun has just sunk low enough to bathe my spot in lovely light and warmth, perfect for sitting here typing and occasionally sharing!

I did promise to share some yarn with you last week and very yummy yarn it is too. It's a pure luxury merino, very soft and lovely to work with. Now I can't show you exactly what I am doing yet because this yummy yarn is being made into a birthday present for a dear friend who is celebrating a rather special birthday this month! So you can only see little teeny tiny snippets of what's happening until the special day. If you look closely at my cosy corner you will see some hooking well underway! The colours are Mulberry, Flint and Slate - they sound very autumnal and look fantastic together. I think more will be needed as I am sure it is time to hook something for myself!

I will pop back later with the rosehip syrup recipe as my batch is underway as I type, so I will infuse, boil and bottle and bring you some pictures later!
