Oooohh, hot chocolate!!! I haven't thought about that scrumptious drink in any real capacity for many months now. We had a cold snap here last week that would have justified one on this end as well (in so much as hot cocoa ever need justification ;)), but I was so stunned by it that I just kept thinking how I didn't want to wave good bye to summer and its tasty seasonal treats yet. Thankfully the sun did return come the weekend (phew!), but I highly suspect we're in for an early fall and that hot cocoa will soon be in frequent rotation here as well. Lovely photos, sweet Kate. Your vintage button collection is beautiful!!!♥ Jessica
I know what you mean Jessica, I couldn't believe that I needed to resort to hot chocolate in August! Wierdly, it has gone back to being really warm now! I hope that you are still enjoying the sunshine. I love buttons, I will show the rest of my collection some time!
Hoorah for the completion of the cardigan! You've got a nice selection of buttons there - which did you go for in the end?
Thank you. I decided on the ones on the top right, they just shouted out that they are the ones!
You have an excellent button selection! That cardigan looks beautiful, I love that shade of green. x
I bought the yarn purely because of the colour. It has been in my stash waiting for a suitable project. I always keep my eye out for buttons in charity shops etc, a collection builds up quite quickly!
Yay Lancasters! They are from Canada and one Is stationed 45 mins from my home. Every year we have a big band dance at the hanger and we dance under the Lancasters wing. So cool! So cool that you saw them fly, I have not seen that yet.
Wow, I would really like to see one close up. That dance sounds like lots of fun. It was amazing to see them fly.
Love the green of that wool;so pretty. Great shot of the two Lancasters, we haven't been able to see them yet, still hoping to at some point.
I do hope you get to see the Lancasters Lucy, it was a really special sight. I need to find more wool of a similar colour now that I have used that one!
