About Me

Hi there & welcome to Annie's Place. A place inspired by and named after my late Grandmother Annie. Somewhere I can be creative, and share my love for all things hand made. I like nothing better than sitting with hook & yarn, crafting something home spun & completely unique, or rustling up some yummy baked goodies. I live in a town with a beautiful embankment, situated on the River Great Ouse. You may know me as 'Colour-Heaven' on Flickr or 'CosyKitty' on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Wrest Park & Relaxation


What a glorious week we've had thus far! Having the opportunity to really get out and enjoy the warm weather has been so uplifting. It's moments like this that I start daydreaming of long sunny days at the beach, feeling the sand between my toes. Leisurely walks along the promenade, ice-cream in hand. 

Until then I shall continue to enjoy the lovely surrounds closer to home. I thought I'd share a few snaps from my recent trip to Wrest Park. I thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful day exploring the house and grounds. It's a stunning location; quite magical. You really do feel like you've stepped back in time there, and being only a short 15 minute drive from home I will no doubt revisit many times in the coming months.

I've also been enjoying a bit of outdoor hooky time. Oh yes, it's one of my favourite things to do. Any opportunity I get I'm on my bike (a very generous birthday gift, thank you Sis) and down by the river. I'm still working on my big blanket. It's a labour of love. One that I'm determined to finish. When though is anyone's guess! I love crocheting, but I am SO SLOW. 

Well, I must dash. The cupboards won't fill themselves.
Love to all
