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.....?!!

Crochet Bags & Cake Shops





























































































































































































































































I've not been the most conscientious of bloggers lately. Unfortunately I've had another bereavement in the family. My Mother's Sister sadly passed away very suddenly two weeks ago. In the early hours of the 3rd of August she slipped away after suffering a sudden and catastrophic bleed on the brain. As you can imagine this has been very traumatic for all the family, as we only lost Mum 6 months ago. We will be saying a final goodbye to her this time next week.

Over the past several weeks I've been beavering away in the background finishing off another bag project. I've popped a couple of pics at the top of this post to show you the completed item. I'm so happy with it, and the recipient was so excited to receive it. I could picture it before I even hooked that first stitch, and it turned out exactly as I'd hoped.

The weather's been very hit and miss here this Summer. But I've managed to dodge most of the showers and make the best of the bright, warm days. I recently went back to my old stomping ground in London. I used to work five minutes walk from Buckingham Palace, and would often have my lunch in St James' Park out front of the Queen's most famous residence.

I like nothing better than just wandering the streets of the Capital, people watching. Of course there is always a throng of tourists, but I love that. I love that such a diverse mix of people descend on our City every year to enjoy the history, which is evident every corner you turn. Of course I had to take my friends to see the gorgeous Peggy Porschen Parlour in Belgravia. With it's pastel pink facade, adorned with flowers, and a Pashley bicycle propped up out front, it truly is a gem of a place.

There's been lots of development in the area since I lived and worked in that part of London. The developers have really maximised every last square inch of space. Eye watering price tags on even the smallest of properties. There's lots of nice places to eat and drink al fresco though, so a girl can pretend to be a local ;)

Well, that's a little update from me. 
Please say hello if you stop by.....love to hear from you xxxx
