Autumn's coming!

Well you can certainly feel it early in the morning, but the days are still sunny and warm.  I am hoping the fine weather will last until the coming weekend, as it is our Village Show then.  I have been busy baking cakes for the teas that we serve there.  I don't have a lot to put in the show the garden has not been so productive this year so no dahlias good enough to enter.  I have a piece of cross stitch to enter in the handicrafts section, I also knitted a garment for a toddler, I was pleased with it until it came to having to pick up stitches to knit the collar, no matter how I tried there just wasn't enough stitches to pick up!  Last weekend I saw a pattern for a sleeveless jacket knitted in chunky wool, so I set too and I have finished it all ready for the show.

I am not expecting to win anything with this, just thought it would be another entry.

My DH and I visited another village show in a small village called Loddiswell, it's a real chocolate box village.  There were some great entries, I thought you may like to see some of the flowers etc.,



 Just realised put this photo on twice, don't know how to cancel it!

I really liked these strange animals that the children made.

They also had a dog show, here are some of the entrants getting there final brush and polish.  Imagine putting your own dog in a show, because as we all know our dog is the best.
 I am off to June's club tonight, we have to bring a piece of gingham and thread with us, I don't know what we are doing but I am sure we will have a great evening, with lots of fun and laughter.  Thankyou for visiting me, I hope you enjoyed your visit and will call again.
