I’ve had one of those weeks filled with good intentions to craft, but I’m getting nowhere fast. I have made a little progress though, so all is not lost. The sock I started last week now has all of the ribbing completed plus 3 or 4 pattern repeats on the leg. I’ve taken the sock…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-28th March
This morning as I laid in bed I could tell it was a grey day by the dull light coming through the curtains. The pitter patter of rain on the windows was also not a great inspiration to me when contemplating getting up. In complete contrast to the glorious sunshine and blue skies of the…… Continue reading Rain, rain, you’re ok!
For non UK readers, last night our clocks went forward an hour. This means the evenings are much lighter (and the childrens’ bedtime is a bit of a pain as they are adamant that they can’t go to sleep when it isn’t dark!) Everything seems so much brighter all of a sudden (me included), the…… Continue reading Springing into spring
Thank goodness my busy week is over-I survived working an extra day and the disco/fundraiser was a huge success. Things are back to normal this week (apart from an incoming tide of birthday party invites for both children!) and so I’m hoping to get more crafting done. I did manage a few craft sessions this…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-21st March
In recent years, I have tended to make similar cards for both mine and Mr C’s mums as I was limited for time.

In the run up to it, though, I was very busy creating cards for both mine and Mr C’s mum. I’ll pop those…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-14th March
Finally, another FO post! The Bertie baby blanket (pattern by Little Doolally, available on Ravelry) is now all done, and mummy-to-be has seen the photos too. It measures approximately 30″ x 35″, which is a little larger than some baby blankets. However, I decided early on that if I was going to put hours into…… Continue reading FO Friday 9th March-Bertie Baby Blanket
This week provided me with plenty of craft time, thanks to some snowy days when it wasn’t safe to drive anywhere. The snow is now long gone, but I have a finished object to show for it (Friday post coming up!), and I’ve made progress on two other projects. I decided to keep going with…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday-7th March
