Here & Now | May 2018 Link Up

Loving // Autumn coolness and beautiful sunshine filled days (after a week of clouds and rain)

Eating // Toasted sourdough, and later today a slice of the most heavenly chocolate, cherry and coconut cake

Drinking // Tea!

Feeling // Excited and overwhelmed with the list of thing to do to get ready for Knitfest Maleny. The list just seems to keep on growing! This small business thing can be a bit hectic sometimes!

Making // I'm putting the finishing touches on my Tea Mouse today as it's the last day of the knit-along! I'm also making speedy progress on my carbeth cardigan, it's a lot longer than in the photo above. And I'm making graphic design edits to patterns, getting them ready for printing (for Knitfest)

Thinking // About knitting workshops...I'm not organising any more until after Knitfest, but that doesn't stop the planning of then! Especially after teaching such a lovely group of ladies on the weekend.

Dreaming // Of the mini holiday I'll be having just before Knitfest

  1. Hi Sarah, sounds like you're settling into the new property beautifully. I am so delighted for you! I just wish I lived closer so I could come to one of your 'learn to knit' classes. What are the beautiful looking pies in the top photo? I can almost smell their 'deliciousness' from my southern hills. Margareta xo

    1. Hi Margareta!
      So lovely to hear from you; I was just thinking about you the other day and wondering how you were :-)
      I'm feeling so much more settled, which is lovely!
      Those pies were delicious, they were blueberry and apple pies x

  2. My gosh! Already! I'd better get on to it, I am not sure where the last month has gone but I need to hurry after it and catch it. Meg;)

    1. Hasn't this month's H&N rolled around quickly! x

    2. Your little pies look mouth-watering, Sarah. I just adore pie, especially any pie with apple in its filling. Mmmm ...

  3. Yes ! Mini holiday at Caloundra to take in Knitfest, can't wait.

    1. Hurray for mini holidays. Maybe I'll see you at Knitfest? x

  4. Hello May!
    April went by so fast!
    Lovely cosy photos...very autumn!

  5. Your Here & Now has a lovely cosy vibe about it this month, Sarah. A perfect autumn feeling. And also feeling rather hungry thanks to those yummy looking little pies. Hmmm. Blueberry and apple - could pie be a healthy breakfast???? :) Good luck with Knitfest! I am sure it will be fabulous.

    1. Thank you, Laura! I don't see why a apple and blueberry pie couldn't be for breakfast, perhaps on a weekend? x

  6. sounds like you are keeping busy Sarah. Can you please send me a slice of that chocolate, cherry coconut cake? Sounds delicious.

    1. I would certainly send you a slice, but I'm afraid there is none left. Why does delicious cake never last very long?!

  7. A mini holiday sounds so relaxing! Enjoy! I love your Tea Mouse!
