On Instagram In July

Happy August everyone! I hope you all had a lovely July. Today I'm looking back on July through my Instagram photos and I know I say this at the start of every new month, but seriously, didn't July wizz by?!

I've been keeping up my goal of walking more. I live in a small riverside town in Essex and my favourite place to walk is by the river. Mr Writer is a great bird spotter so when I walk with him it's amazing to find out how many species of bird inhabit the river

I'm not a sunbather but I do love to spend as much time outside in the summer months as I can, so I spent lots of time in the garden in July. The slide belongs to my niece, although she has told me I can use it!

Taking the opportunity to work on some knitting in the garden. Bourbons are one of my favourite biscuits and this giant one was a treat from my sister!

Sadly the weather wasn't always lovely in July, which caused a craft fair I was attending to ber rained off. We all got soaked and I had to quickly pack my work into the car. British summertime!

Nelson cat has had a lovely July spent napping and sunbathing- it's a cats life! I love how chilled out he is

Mr Writer works long hours and I'm often at work at the weekend so it's been nice this month to make more time to spend together. We have a couple of favourite cafes in our hometown and one of them does amazing milkshakes in every flavour you can imagine- these were Nutella flavour and they were so good!

I was chuffed to run a drop in needle felted beads workshop for 6 lovely ladies at The Made In Colchester Summer Fair. I was so pleased they enjoyed the workshops and I've got several more in the planning stage, I'm just confirming venues so watch this space!

There was a lovely atmosphere at The Made In Colchester Summer Fair- a good time had by all!

I made this Swarovski Crystal and freshwater pearl necklace as a gift for a friend. I find beading really therapeutic! I'm planning a range of these necklaces in different colours to release in my Etsy and Folksy Shops later this year- I'll keep you up to date on this!

I've been wearing my Fair Isle accessories lots. I love being able to wear knit even in hot weather!

Upcycled fabric and vintage button hairslide making, fueled by tea and my other favourite biscuits, chocolate digestives!

So that was July! What did you get up to in July?

 I'm looking forward to getting stuck into working on some new pieces in August, I'll be sure to share what I'm up to. If you'd like to follow me on Instagram you can find me here. I'd love to follow you too!
