Instalife: Autumn in Cambridge

Instalife Autumn has begun claireabellemakes

Autumn in Cambridge makes me feel content. My daily bicycle ride to and from work has allowed me to enjoyed the misty mornings and crisp air and the colours have been just stunning. Although I’ve been unwell and tired for most of October, there have definitely been some highlights, even if just the simple things….

– Painted Street Pianos dotted about Cambridge for the ‘Play Me I’m Yours Project’. This has lifted me every time I hear one being played.

– Snuggles and blanket time with my kitty and some comfort food and cakes.

– Lattes and pumpkin carving dates with G and the first mittens outing of the season.

– Thoughtful presents in the mail from friends and finishing crochet presents for another friend.

– Sharing my vast collection of craft books on Instagram and being slightly embarrassed by the shocked response of my followers….

– A busy month for my Etsy shop, an international sale and some fabulous magazine features.

– A wonderful mug swap from cupcakemamma and a beautiful crocheted baby hat for my expectant friend by Lemons for Lemonade

What did you get up to in October? I’m looking forward to November as I plan for my first craft fair, attend a friend’s wedding and celebrate my birthday. I’m determined to finish some long term craft projects too and appreciate the last few leaves of the season!
