Around this time last year, I posted about my tough decision to make a big change, job (and lifestyle) wise. Today it is exactly 2 years ago since I made that choice, so it seemed a suitable time to share my post again. In the last year even more has changed: I’ve said yes to…… Continue reading Choosing To Make a Change (2 Years On)
It’s been another crochet week, including a ‘just for fun’ project I’d been meaning to try. I haven’t been terribly productive as I’ve been at work a lot, but even so, some progress has been made.

I hadn’t had a call for work, so I was at home. I’d done the chores, including a very thorough…… Continue reading A Not WIP Wednesday Post, Featuring Fairy Dust
I try to keep my posts all about one thing and not mix up too much, but today I thought I’d break my own rule. First of all, I said in my WIP Wednesday that I’d post a photo of my latest finished project. It is a Lush cardigan by Tin Can Knits and it…… Continue reading An FO, a Sprout and a chat about Instagram
