Autumn Fruit Picking – Blogtober 2020

Is there anything more autumnal than visiting a pumpkin patch? While it’s a little early to be picking up a pumpkin; this weekend we headed to a local pick-your-own for some autumn fruit picking!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

It’s been a while since either of us have been fruit picking, but we thought, why not! A nice excuse for some fresh air, and exercise, and a bit of fun!

My Autumn Bucket List – Blogtober 2020

Autumn is my favourite season, and it seemed only right, to share my autumn bucket list here on the blog, to show what I have planned for the next month or so!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

I don’t have much planned generally for October, but there are a few things I would like to do! So I created a bucket list at the beginning of the month, knowing ahead of time, it was one of the prompts for Instagram…

Autumn Favourites Tag – Blogtober 2020

Before I get to my Autumn favourites, I thought I’d explain a little….

I thought I would do something a little different this month, and try Blogtober, now technically that means 31 days of posts, but posting every day, and working is a little much for me.

I will be posting every day on Instagram, but here on the blog there will be more content, and some extra fun things throughout the month, from crafts and decor ideas, to getting out and about and enjoying more of Autumn!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So as a bit of an introduction to the season, I thought I’d share some of my favourites…

On The Desk – CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Leaves

Week 1 of the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Leaves.

Well, thanks to this challenge, I now actually have prompts for my crafting. This month, as well as working on some old favourites, which is becoming the norm lately; I will be doing some Autumn crafts!

On the desk...

We’re heading for more of an autumn vibe, though I’m hoping the sunny days hold out for a little longer!

This month, for a bit of fun; I thought I’d spend the next few weeks sharing a sneak peek of my preparations for the # CraftRoomInspiredChallenge; using different materials each week, including leaves, twigs, old cosy socks and orange fabric, yarn or thread. The final results will be shared over on Instagram every Sunday.

#CraftRoomInspiredChallenge, Leaves, Old Cosy Socks, Twigs, Orange, #MayInspire, #CraftRoomAndBeyond

You can read more about the challenge here.

The CraftRoomInspiredChallenge – Autumn 2020

Craft challenge alert, if you fancy getting crafty this September – join in with the CraftRoomInspiredChallenge!

What I love about being part of the creative community online is meeting fellow craft lovers! I do of course host the Beyond Craft chat over on Twitter on a Tuesday evening (more info at the bottom of this post), and of course over the years have met many talented and creative makers! This past weekend Gemma of MayInspire messaged me about co-creating a crafty challenge for September, I love a good challenge, and honestly she did pretty much all of the work, but I’m delighted to be able to share it here!

Halloween Crafting – Black Cat Cushion

It is rare for me to do Halloween crafting, at least in any great amount. As much as I love Autumn; I just don’t see much that takes my fancy, though perhaps next year, it will make a change? I say this after I made this fun Halloween black cat cushion cover!

Blogtober - The Craft Room and Beyond

So while I will probably never do a FULL blogtober; as October isn’t really a time I’ve felt much need to blog a great deal about; I hope you enjoy this small crafty project!

Of all our National Trust visits, it seems fitting that one of our final properties to visit in 2018 was one that had been on my list for a very long time.
