Definitely a bit on the autumn side

Last week it was summer, this week its not, almost like someone got up on Monday morning and remembered to turn the autumn switch on.
See, autumn :-












I've been busy doing autumnal things like pickling beetroot and making sloe gin and blackberry jam. One of the jars of sloe gin has had a slight leakage issue in the garage. Smells like a brewery in there!
Craftwise I've been doing a bit of knitting, here is a little jumper I knitted for a friends baby grandson, and making felt Christmassy things inspired by the book in my previous post. Pictures of those to follow.
Up to 98 followers now, I feel a bit of a giveaway coming on when I reach 100...

There is just something so comforting about doing all the autumn activities, isn't there? Your blackberry jam sounds wonderful! Pretty little jumper, too--lovely colors :)

It all sounds very cosy! Love it. Nice little top too. x

Cute little jumper, on this side of the pond, we would probably call it a sweater. Lovely autumn arrangement
Blackberry jam and pickled beets sound marvelously delicious. Our current temps are decidedly summerlike and we are taking them in greedily.
