Inspired by the beautiful golden shades of autumn I have been busy painting the lounge a glorious warm honey ochre. Quite a transformation from the terracotta we have had for a long time. #painting #inspiredbynature #yellow #golden #mycottage #countryliving #countrylife #ancientroom #inglenook #keepsmebusy #keepsmehappy #lovepainting #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #lounge

In between zooming with talks and courses, catching up on ‘His Dark Materials’, watching an eclectic selection of films and sorting stock, I have been indulging in some therapeutic slow hand stitching to show what you could go on to make if you make one of my stars. I shall pause it here as it’s just a teaching sampler but you get the idea. #patchwork #patchworkquilt #templates #slowstitching #handstitched #handmade #therapy #englishpaperpiecing #diamonds #thingstodoinlockdown #makesmehappy #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage #quiltersofinstagram

I don’t know the official name for stitching seams like this but I love it! It adds texture and more colour and it’s very relaxing to stitch #stitch #stitchersofinstagram #orange #hotcolours #mytherapy #lovesewing #stitchingathome #sashikothread #handstitched #embellishments #thingstodoonarainyday #christinegreencrafts #craftingatthecottage
