Quitches Be Crazy about Autumn (QBC 5)

Quitches Be Crazy
Quitches Be Crazy 

This week we Quitches Be Crazy about Autumn! Season of new shoes and knitwear to me it's also one for new starts and life planning. RatsAsBigAsCats is starting her final year of her art course and for me it's the start of a new Communications job. We will both also be getting some Christmas craft on meaning more of our WiPs being secret! So, having learned about what it means to be committed to a weekly blog Quitches Be Crazy is now taking a deep breath and moving to a monthly feature. 

So to this week's Autumn/ new term themed Quitches Be Crazy questions... 

Q1) Text - Autumn is firmly here. What do you do to get into the spirit of the season?      
Autumn means knitting and wearing knitwear, boots, tights, hot wine, but also buying new stationery sitting down with a notebook and making lists and goals for the coming year.
e.g. for example on my list is getting my CBT again, (which I'd allowed to expire) so that I can have the freedom of a motorbike eventually...

I love to walk along a leafy road, wrapped up warm, music on with a head full of plans and plots. Now I also have a shiny new day job to get stuck into which helps too! Autumn just feels like the start of the year in a way that New Year doesn't. 

Q2) Photo What sums up the back to school season for you?
Well short of a picture of new stationery, knitwear and new shoes... since I'm in in Oxford it has to be something like...

Q3) Linky/ Photo/ Text - What's inspiring you this week?
OOoh... the tentacle window by Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton that I saw in Florence really captured my imagination. It's so extraordinary and quite a thing to sell a handbag (just in view). 

Q4) WiP(s)? 
a) Skull in glow in the dark thread french knots - perfectly acceptable long-term WiP since glow-in-the-dark floss is a bitch and french knots require a lot of patience.
b) Flowers of hexagons stacking them up mindlessly. 
c) Case for my bamboo tablet for which I have outer and inner mostly finished... 
d) Knitting something navy blue - lovely mindless knitting to keep hands busy when brain is still in use. 
e) Finally learned how to do moss stitch... so practicing that with ugly yarn.
f) Geek boy quilt top all done and ready for basting I think... 
And there are more but there's simply not time today to list them all + it'd depress me.

Quitches Be Crazy moving to a monthly feature might even mean that I get some other blogging done now you never know! Certainly I have a new respect for proper bloggers. 
More quitching in November then... Should you want to Quitch-along with us see my instructions hereRatsAsBigAsCats' posts will have lovely, proper photos and all sorts too so do click to her post. 

In the meantime I may have time to actually DO some of those projects on the list, some Christmas makes as well as the other stuff in the calendar, gigs, movies and perhaps even some gymming.  I shall also try to get more photos on my much neglected flickr and tumblr... maybe even the old etsy

  1. Zenith is part of LVMH, and after a successful time there since 2009, he is making the ultimate trip up the ladder to being in a top leadership position at Rolex replica watches uk. Mr. Dufour is a known friend and protegé of the famed Jean-Claude Biver, former CEO of Hublot, who continues to retain a position of influence at the brand and replica watches uk who now has a more senior role guiding the watch brand divisions of LVMH (which also includes Zenith and TAG Heuer, among others). Mr. Biver greatly assisted Mr. Dufour when he started at Zenith and most agree that replica watches uk their combined work has turned Zenith into a brand which has recaptured and in many ways exceeded much of its former glory. Rolex replica watches uk is known for having relatively long-standing CEOs and the stepping down of Gian Riccardo Marini is unique since he was appointed in 2011. The release from Rolex replica watches uk suggests that the stepping down of Mr. Marini and the appointment of Mr. Dufour was "in agreement" with Mr. Marini.
