Total Lunar Eclipse of a Super Full Moon

I stayed up last night (morning really) to see the rare total lunar eclipse (also called a blood moon) of a super full moon and it was worth it. About 3am the moon went dark and turned a deep red. Somewhere nearby I could hear someone blowing a trumpet (the same note for over an hour!), another person even nearer was chanting. I was in my garden so could not see anyone!, that with the strange noises of the local foxes gave the eclipse lots of atmosphere.
It was also a Harvest Moon - that's a full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, so Autumns on its way, Its my favourite season, I love how all the colours of the leaves change from green to orange and yellow.
If you missed last nights total lunar eclipse and super full moon combo mark your dairy as the next ones in 33 years time!

Spoonflower - Free Shipping Day

Hip hip hooray! the nice people at are doing another free swatch day, this one is for their new Poly Crepe de Chine. A sheer lightweight 100% polyester crepe fabric I think I would use this for scarves, it looks soft. I ordered my swatch earlier (one of my flower bird designs) looking forward to receiving it :)
You can choose to order your own design or pick any of the 1000's available and p&p is free to.

Filet Crochet Chart Survey

I was editing some new charts when I thought, lets do a survey on charts to see which would be best to use.
So I made a very short survey, only one question.
Which chart would you prefer to work from. Thank you in advance to everyone who takes the time to do the survey.
