On a  walk on the downs last evening I saw this lovely sight, a load of snails bedded down for the night, or maybe for hibernation, I don't know.

I got to thinking, and this is how my mind works. lol
What would you call this,  A Snailery? or maybe a Shell..ter?
All the same I think its beautiful.

I've finally finished the Cafe Creme Scrumble and got it framed and on the wall.

I'm fairly happy with it but am wondering if the mount colour is right, but then like most crafters I'm never totally happy with my makes.

 Little bit of tatting made its way in here.

Last evening before going to bed I thought I'd give the sofa cushions a bit of a pump up.

When I came back in from a quick visit to the kitchen, Polly had decided to get in between the cushions and had settled down, needless to say the cushions stayed like this until the morning.
Well, how could I move her ??

Have a lovely weekend everybody.

Sorry about the posts lately there's just no inspiration at the moment but I did find this on Pinterest.

Just thought it was funny.

Can't see any of mine allowing this...

Things have been a bit fraught around here today with the carpet layers declaring that they were coming this afternoon and insisting that they called to arrange the time, when they DID NOT.....

We therefore found ourselves moving furniture this morning when we thought we had a nice day ahead.
Once the furniture was moved we felt we needed to commune with nature, just to get grounded again and so went for a walk on the Downs to calm down before the men arrived in the afternoon.

I'm glad we did as we spotted two fungi that I have never seen before.

These two dinner plate sized one's were filled in the middle with rain water. I've tried to identify these and I think they may be called 'Ugly Milk Cap'  maybe Countryside Tales will know, find her here

The other fungi was this really pretty little white one and I think this is the 'Collared Parachute' but I may be wrong.

Then just as we were reaching the car park I noticed this slug hanging on by just his tail.

And what was so interesting about this half dead plant I can't think, but the snails obviously found something good here.

Lastly I'll leave you with a picture of Mummy Polly in her new 50p car boot find nest on top of the fridge freezer.
Please don't take offence at the fridge magnets, my son bought them for me. lol

It's been over a week since I last posted, but I've been busy with Mr.Fox.
I found a lovely Amigurumi pattern here and put all scrumbling and motifs to one side to make him.

Here he is waiting for the operation to put him all together.

Just finding his feet here, standing on my keyboard, but it didn't take long for him to get about.

At first he hid behind the crochet hooks, just a little shy.

Then he hopped into the cat bed with Mummy Polly, she didn't seem to mind too much.

But he finally settled on Tom's shoulder in the sunshine.
I think he'll be very happy with us.

Yes, I know I'm bonkers, but who
