It’s that wonderful time of year when the we are surrounded by lush golden tones, the evenings draw in and the children start to get excited about Halloween and Christmas.
The Mad Mad Makers are also thinking ahead to these things. I’ve gathered my favourites together on a Pinterest board. I hope you like them ♥

Having spent the best part of the morning installing Jetpack, setting up sharing and generally losing my way around my own website, I think I may have finally had a EUREKA moment.
If that really is the case, this blog post should automatically appear on my G+ business page.
Furthermore, I’m only a click away from posting it to Twitter and Facebook at the same time….okay, one bridge at a time, eh 😉

Adding a crochet ruffle frill trim is not as scary as it looks. It has so many uses – skirt, dress, frilly hems, borders and edgings or (for the really brave) as a fluffy blanket photo prop.
Better still, it’s the perfect way to get rid of all that ruffle yarn you bought to make scarves with but got bored of so quickly!!!
Contrasting colours used for clarity not cosmetic appearance 😉
