Yes, this blog really is primarily about knitting/crochet for my home, but it’s taking (too) many days to knit/crochet us and our converted brewery house. Please bear with me. Housey finished objects will start appearing soon. But the twinnage needs some clothes:-

In the meantime, I offer you some non-knitty vegetative houseyness.
