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 handmade. 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 CosyKitty on Ravelry. Why not stop a while.....?!!

Heartfelt thanks

It has certainly been an emotional few weeks since saying goodbye to our precious Jamie-puss. Lots of tears have been shed, interspersed with smiles and memories of our beloved boy. He gave us 17 years of joy and happiness and we are sure we did the right thing in letting him go. Home is not the same without him there, but one day that void may be filled with another furry friend. We'll see......xx 

I just wanted to express my gratitude for all the sweet messages of support you left. It has meant so much. I know many of you have suffered the same loss and can really empathise with how we are feeling. 

I celebrated a birthday a few days ago and will be off on a little break tomorrow. My parents have very generously paid for a few days away in Dorset. As some of you may remember I visited lovely Lyme Regis back in June. This time Weymouth is our destination. I can't believe the forecast for the coming week is set to be warm, dry and sunny! How fortunate are we? The last hurrah of Summer, even though the calendar disagrees. I am so looking forward to it......  

I'll leave you with a little snap shot of the hooky I'm working on at the mo. Nothing new or exciting really, just I've decided to make a cushion yes another one out of the hexies I showed you a while back. The reverse side will be rows of simple (UK) treble crochet in complimentary colours. I hope to show you the finished piece next time.

  6. I know you are feeling sadness now but look how long you gave this wonderful kitty a happy life? A big whole in your heart but soon to be filled with a rescued kitty who needs a loving home and a new life. Your kitty would be proud of you for saving someone else.
