On Instagram In June

Happy July to you all! It's that time again when I take a look back at the previous month and share what I got up to through my Instagram photos. This was my June...


Here in the UK the weather has been very changeable and we've seen a LOT of rain, hail, cold snaps, thunder storms as well as some gloriously hot sunny days. The weather certainly has been strange, which is why at the beginning of June I was still wearing my jacket- accessorized with one of my Fair Isle necklaces!


When the sun has come out it's been absolutely beautiful and the gardens and countryside have been looking so Summery



An Iris from Mr Writer's Mum's garden- I'd never seen one in these colours before. It reminds me of a frilly dress!


RHS Hyde Hall gardens were looking quintessentially English on a hot June day


I had some time off from the day job in June and I visited RHS Wisley gardens in Surrey with my friend. It was absolutely stunning, I'd definitely recommend  a visit!


Woolly well wishes, just because!


I started a new project during my time off work. I struggle to remember the crochet stitches so I'm making sure I remember how to do trebles as well as the granny square pattern by making a Granny Square blanket. It's going to be a long term WIP, something to pick up and put down between other projects- I just need to start sewing the ends in as I go or that will be a huge task at the end!




In early June I made some Harris Tweed brooches and rings in new colours for my Etsy Shop




I also introdeuced a new product, these Harris Tweed mini embroidery hoop necklaces with upcycled fabric. I'm loving wearing mine! Find out more here

During my time off work I was so happy to have some time to work on non work cfrafty projects. I finally finished these Margot pyjama bottoms from the Tilly Walnes Love At First Stitch book.They are so comfy, I'm hoping to make some more pairs


For my birthday in November my friend treated me to afternoon tea at a vintage tearoom and in June we finally managed to get a Saturday together and had a thoroughly lovely afternoon!  I'd never had afternoon tea before so I felt quite sophisticated. Sooo many cakes!


Nelson has loved the more Summery days of June and has spent lots of time outside, mostly sleeping and rolling around (and who can blame him?!)


This is what Nelson thinks of me reading my book while eating my breakfast, the cheeky boy!


Cute little visitors at work! These two beautiful Jack Russell puppies belong to my colleague- I could have easily taken them home, so cute!


I hope you had a lovely June and wishing you a fab July!
