Quick Catch Up: Hello October!
Good Morning October! I’m all about the Autumn vibes right now and and I’m living in a perpetual state of desire for a PSL. I know. I just ned to put on a plaid shirt, a piece of knitwear, my dark framed glasses and, with a PSL in hand, I;ll be a complete walking stereotype. I’m fine with that!
September was a beautiful, busy, happy month – packed with wedding anniversary celebrations (I know, we made two years already, how did that even happen?!), we’ve made inroads with renovations projects, I;ve completed a huge work project and am starting a new journey with lots of exciting projects on the horizon.
This month I headed to the first ever Handmade Fair at Hampton Court and had a total blast? Did you make it to the show – be sure to share your stories, or blog posts to the event in the comments – I’d love to hear about your experiences too!
This show mark the start of a busy time for me, hitting the road for the exciting show season ahead!
So, here are my 2014 Diary Dates…
9 – 12 October The Knitting & Stitching Show Alexandra Palace, London
30 October – 2 November The Knitting & Stitching Show RDS, Dublin
20 – 23 November The Knitting & Stitching Show HIC, Harrogate
There has also been a fair bit of fun happening here on Made Peachy too! So, heres a round up of some of the things that have been my favourites here at Peachy HQ this month!
Crafts: Quick-Make Bunting With Sizzix
My other loves on the internet right now are…
While I’ve been working at warp speed this month, sadly there has been little leisure time to curl up with a book (more’s the pity) but I have managed to add three new titles to my Reading Challenge in My Months Reads:
36: Flowertown – S G Redling
My love for post-apocalyptic novels is growing and this was a great read. This was a chance find in the Kindle store, I have never read this author or even heard of this title, so this was a real treat to find a real gem of this genre. Truly enjoyable read!
37: Secret Lives – Diane Chamberlaine
As a huge fan of Diane Chamberlain it was great to find one of her older works. This book contains everything you would expect from a Diane Chamberlain novel – carefully constructed storyline, blistering issues, and a personable collection of characters. A wonderful book that was a real page turner!
38: Midlife Crisis at 30– Lia Macko & Kerry Rubin
This book was not what I expected – which might explain what it took me so long to get through it, returning to it again and again over the coming months. I believe there is value in this book, perhaps it is worthy of a re-read, there are certainly relevant elements worth exploring, but it seems to me that this exploration needs to be driven by the readers rather than guided by the authors through the text.

October you will be a month of travelling and meeting new people. You will be a month of making and creating and, most importantly you will be a month of delicious PSLs!
What plans do you have for October?
