On Instagram In August

Here in the UK the Summer weather is notorious for being hit and miss, but this year we've been so lucky to have been blessed with the most beautiful weather in August. As much as I love getting wrapped up in big snugly woolly jumpers (I am a knitter after all!) I'm a Summer girl at heart and I've absolutely loved this Summer! I hope you've had a lovely August and have enjoyed some sunshine where you are. Here's a look back at what I got up to in August through my Instagram photos...

The gardens have been blooming in the sunshine!

It gets really busy both on and around the river in the Summer months

I feel very lucky to live here. People come to visit the park from all over the county and beyond

Gooseberries from my Gran's garden! These became a crumble, nom nom nom

Sharing my seasonal recipe for blackberry and marshmallow cake

I baked a Bake Off inspired lemon drizzle cake. What can I say, I just love a cup of tea and a slice of cake! 

Lovely Nelson. He's always so chilled out and he's just so cute, love him

I've been looking ahead to Winter and making new jewellery pieces for upcoming craft fairs in the Winter months

I've been enjoying making my Harris Tweed mini embroidery hoop necklaces and I'm delighted that they have received a good response

Taking part in a local craft fair

I shared my How To for these spray painted tile coasters on the blog in August

Sunny day selfie wearing one of my handmade Swarovski crystal and upcycled bead necklace. I wear this necklace all the time, it goes with everything. I have a similar one available in my Etsy Shop

I'm designing and making some of my Fair Isle triangle necklaces in new colours. Let me know if there are any particular colours/colour combos you would like to see!

One of my Harris Tweed rings all ready to send off to its new home!

The lovely Sarah shared this pic of her wearing her new pink Harris Tweed ring, thanks Sarah! Love your nails too

I don't think I will ever get tired of mustard Harris Tweed!

What did you get up to in August? If you'd like to keep up to date with what I'm up to in the coming months you can follow me on Instagram- I'm @louisedawsondesign and I'd love to follow you back!

Best wishes for a fab September
