It's getting all Autumn-y at the lottie

I have to confess I haven't been at my lottie much over the past couple of weeks. First there was the onion eating incident (I am intolerant and was sick all one weekend) then last weekend I had a tummy bug :( Oh why world, why??!

Anyway I was able to get out for little periods here and there and I pretty much never go anywhere without a camera :) So,here are some lovely shots of our very own produce from our allotment, the colours of which have cheered me up through my tummy upsets and the dull rainy days. They have also put me mind of the cosy dark and wintery nights that lie ahead and in response to that I have started up my needlework again and even have a sampler to get started :) Being sick though has left me with little energy so I shall write about my newest crafty adventures another day (right now I could do with a nap). Also I have to remember to tell you all about the utterly fabulous Suzanne from 'Little White Dog' as my ATC came in the post with a little gift and has shown her to be an absolute genius; an arty goddess if ever there was one.

So here are my happy newest pics which may go on Etsy but I'm not sure quite yet...

Though I do have some lovely produce photos (the produce is lovely not the photos) from quick trips Andy has made in the gales and rain. We were there today for 15 mins too but boy, the rain started and I had the worst 'thunder' headache.

-----Onion Comp News ----

Winner of the largest onion was.....
Muriel!! (darkhorse to me as I didn't know she was growing onions for the big day) She won a cup :) I have to try and get a picture, haha

Winner of the best matching pair was.....
Stephen! His 2 onions were so well matched that they were weighed over and over just to make sure. They were exactly the same weight! I do so hope at least one of the winners has their cup in their shed and are willing to take part in a photo op as soon as the weather permits me to get down there.

Love and hugs, till tomorrow xx


  1. Well done to Muriel, it's always the quiet ones you have to watch out for!

  2. I wish we have autumn to look for and summer to say goodbye to. About onion, the very thing that hurt your tummy is consumed by others as herbal treatment for tummy too... Perplexing! ~bangchik

  3. Fruit looks yummy, any going spare? :D

  4. I'm with Craig those berries look absolutely scrumptious! They make my mouth water.. you should definitely add them to your Esty shop.

    Peace and Good will to you..

  5. I'm back! Did ya miss me? :P

    I love the colours in your pics too. And hey, your pics are just fine, I reckon. They do the job, which is to make my mouth water for fruit, so that's got to be a good thing, right? :D

  6. Beautiful photos, Carrie,and I need to stop in at your Etsy shop. Have a lovely day!
