Everything is growing like mad again, as it is not cold yet, despite a couple of early-morning light frosts recently. In fact, yesterday there was a new flower on my courgette plant, though I doubt we'll have the sunshine to bring it to fruition!
Wild life is preparing for the winter, or, at least, the fieldmouse in my kitchen is. I saw it today, run along behind the toaster and microwave, presumably looking for crumbs to stock up its larder. Note to self - must get a cat...
I'm not scared of mice, but I do remember the one who made a nest in one of my cardboard boxes when I first moved here and completely ruined a new, expensive duvet cover and a beautiful antique wool challis throw with crewel hand embroidery, so I can't really tolerate them here. Some mice have expensive tastes!
Yesterday I had a stall at a small brocante in the Maison Bleue cafe in Le Dorat, but it wasn't very well attended. I sold a few things and then had dinner out on the proceeds, so not a bad day really!
Today I will finish the child-sized Rustling Leaves beret. It is a bit of an unknown as I have no child to try it on. I also have a bit of a problem blocking these small berets, as none of my plates seem to be the right size!
This yarn, though very pretty and soft and warm, does not show the leaf pattern well and I think this pattern is best in a solid colour. I guess it'll look better when it's blocked.
