New project

It’s wet and miserable here today, so I thought I would start a new project. A new winter throw for the sofa. I’m always fascinated by the way Marbled and stripped wool crochets .

Different tones of cream, coffee, grey and tweed look very interesting. Very subtle, neutral colours. Because it’s chunky wool on a 5mm crochet hook ,it’s growing very quickly.

Crochet bliss.

Have a lovely Sunday xx

Where did September go !

Oh dear, I’ve missed a month somewhere! Where did September disappear to? I have been so busy with birthdays, work, our allotment, weekends away and just family life. I’m not complaining, I’ve enjoyed every moment.

I’ve loved following everybody’s blogs and must apologise to everyone I follow for not leaving any comments regarding their wonderful and entertaining blogs.

Yarndale came and went! What an amazing craft event, well done and thank you to everyone who took part in the event xx One year I will go, It’s almost like a pilgrimage for all crafters. Lucy from Attic 24 is a constant inspiration to me and many others, thank you.yarndale_promotional_image

My husband and I have celebrated our birthdays over the last couple of weeks. We had lots of lovely cards and gifts, thanks to everyone x I had lots of lovely pressies, wool, items for the garden and allotment, candles and an embarrassing amount of chocolate, love it, love it, love it xxxxx

My lovely best friend, Sue, gave me a birthday voucher for the Wool Warehouse….. temptation. I have spent an age trawling through their lovely web site. Great to see Heather from Tiny Tin Bird blog on their site, well done Heather. What should I buy? What shall my next project be? A trip to the library was a source of inspiration. Our libraries are fantastic, we need them in our communities, they are so valuable to people and children of all ages. So, armed with a few books, I’m sure I shall find a new project.

Happy Autumn to all the bloggers out there, thank you for all of your wonderful blogs.
