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.....?!!

Happy inside

It sure has been a soggy start to the week. I've been desperately trying to dodge the showers. Never quite sure whether to risk putting my washing out to dry. One minute sun, next minute rain. 

Thankfully Saturday was the best day of the weekend, so I decided to pop along to Fibre East, a short drive from home in Ampthill. I wandered amongst all the lovely stalls passing a very pleasant few hours. I had a limited budget but still managed to stretch it, coming away with a smile on my face and a bag full of goodies. More about those next time. 

I've been busying myself in the kitchen with a bit of baking. I've been really lazy on the cake making front, so thought it was high time my Mason Cash mixing bowl saw the light of day. I'm sure most of you know Bake Off is back next week. Should be a good watch.....

The batch of 12 cupcakes I made with buttercream icing and sprinkles were gone in no time. My first attempt at using a piping bag was a complete disaster. In fact it was laughable. Let's just say I'm blaming the tools. It's not what they look like that's important though eh? I certainly enjoyed one or two or maybe three....

I'm flitting between lots of crochet projects at the moment. I've even been working on a scarf! Yes you heard right, scarf making in July. Well it'll take me till Christmas to finish it so I may as well get a head start. 

I've been playing around with a gorgeous palette of Stylecraft Classique Cotton too. Do you remember some time back I showed you this motif I was tinkering with? I thought it might be nice to see it worked up in some brights. I can't help but think of starburst sweets when I look at the colours together. I'm salivating.....

Thank you all so much for always leaving me lovely comments, and welcome to all those new faces that have joined me here in recent weeks. I'm glad you still stop by despite my sporadic posting xxxxx
