On Instagram in June

June has been beautifully sunny, summery and hot for the most part here in the uk. We're already well into the first week of July so I wanted to share some of my Instagram photos from June before another month flies by! So here's what I got up to in June...


I've been trying to spend as much time as I can working outdoors, walking and making the most of the summer. The countryside is looking so floral and pretty


Evening sunshine through the Wisteria. I love being able to sit outside to eat dinner on summer evenings


Our Apricot tree is laden with fruit this year but they have a tendency to go from rock like to very ripe very quickly, so I've got my eye on them! Recipe books at the ready!


I took this pic during breakfast in the garden. I really would stay out there all day if I could!


I have a fizzy water obsession and lately I've been enjoying it with fresh fruit in my Kilner Jar mug


I've been catching up with friends this month and have enjoyed a couple of evenings outside my favourite pub, which has the best river views



Nelson is loving the summery weather and has been spending lots of time outside chilling in the shade or napping indoors on the sofa. It's a cats life!




Alongside the Made In Colchester Collective I've been taking part in the Bazaar monthy food and craft market at The Waitng Room in Colchester


I'm still working on new Fair Isle jewellery pieces and I've started making some small square designs


I went along to a Fair Isle and Intarsia workshop at the brilliant Make Do and Mend in Chelmsford, Essex. The super cute tea cosy was a gift to Make Do and Mend from a lady who learnt to knit there- it's so cute! Read more about the workshop and Make Do and Mend in this post


Getting in some photography practice


Enjoying the homemade food at Bazaar at The Waiting Room. I couldn't resist a slice of this lime, elderflower and strawberry custard tart and it tasted amazing!


Baking these strawberry and white chocolate cupcakes to make the most of English strawberry season! I shared the recipe here

My day job is close to the Tiptree Jam Factory and I was gifted a jar of this lovely Passion Fruit Curd, so I baked a passion fruit and cream cake!
