Here & Now | July 2018 Link-Up

Welcome to this month's Here & Now Link-Up! It's shamefully late, but that's been a bit of a theme throughout the year, hasn't it? Never mind!
The link-up is open now, so if you'd like to join in you can!

Loving // Sunshine filled winter days, a crackling fire in the wood stove and a weekend of no plans after a week of crazy busyness. 

Eating // Sourdough pizza and homemade garlic least I will be tomorrow night for a yummy family dinner. 

Drinking // This scrumptious herbal tea from The Dandy Tea Co. With orange and lemon, it's the perfect winter drink.

Feeling // A little worn out after non-stop organisation and appointments since returning from Knitfest. I'm welcoming the weekend a day early and am keeping my diary (fairly) clear next week.

Making // The final touches to my Cherry Pie Beret pattern - it's pictured at the beginning of this post. I'm using it to teach Magic Looping at my next knitting workshop, and will also release the pattern later this month.

Thinking // About said knitting workshop that's coming up at the end of this month. I've put some photos of the last workshop into this post because I don't think I ever shared any here? I love teaching my workshops and can hardly wait for the next one, which is in an all-day format.

Dreaming // Of planting seeds into the garden. I might just get that done this weekend! I've already made plans for the spring planting, and am looking forward to ordering more seeds when the weather warms.

What's happening in your world right now? Would you like to take a moment to document it on your blog? Here & Now is a fun exercise to reflect and think about the little parts of life (the ultimately make up the bigger picture.) Join us!

The link-up is open from today until midnight on the 17th of this month.
Simply copy the Here & Now list from below, paste it into a new blog post and fill it in. Add as many (or as few) photos to your post as you like and then hit publish!
The last step is to come back here and add the link to your new blog post to the link-up tool below so that we can all see your post.
I'd love it if you could please link back here in your post, too, so that others can find the link-up.

Copy & Paste....

  1. We bought some of that tea, too, Sarah, from the Finders Keepers Markets. Isn't it delicious!

  2. I love that Cherry Pie Beret. That color of red I favor over other red colors. Looks very stylish. It is July and hot in the States. So I'm not knitting at this time. When it changes seasons perhaps I'll want to be around yarn, then.

    1. Thanks so much! It’s hard to think of knitting when it’s really hot, isn’t it? Keep cool!

  3. Love that beret. Looking forward to the pattern.

    1. Thank you Brigie! I might just have it published by this weekend :-)

  4. What a stunning coloured beret. Beautiful photo too.

  5. I love the red of your beret, Sarah. Such a lovely colour for Winter. Sourdough pizza sounds delicious too. Meg:)

    1. Thank you Meg! Sourdough pizza is so good :-)

  6. Hımm garlic bread sounds amazing :) And I love your beret.
    I write always here & now. but sometimes I can't catch your link time because of time difference. But this time I could give my link :) It makes me happy to write here & now blogpost and to take photos for this post. What a wonderful idea you found.
