Ups and downs

I'm just popping by to say Hello to you all and to let you know that I am still very much alive and kicking! I've just not had much time recently or indeed the motivation to have anything decent to blog about!


Thank you all so much for your lovely comments about my woolly paintbox cushion. I am so glad that you liked it and I did love reading all your wonderful comments about it ~ it really did cheer me UP alot ~ xxxx

I have been UP to my eyes in the end of year accounts for the wonderful charity that I do some voluntary work for. Rummaging around in piles of receipts and invoices and calculating and then recalculating ~ I think that I am finally getting somewhere though, and hope to have some kind of report done for the AGM which is happening very soon. Much too soon for my liking!


Earlier on in the week I had a little bit of a panic to myself ~ a little bit of a disaster....! No matter how hard I looked I just could not find my favourite and trusty metal hook. I decided that I needed to tidy out my crochet bag ~ which was a very necessary and very much avoided task ~ and do you know what? I found it hiding at the very bottom of the bag with all the scrappy little bits of wool that I keep 'just in case' I might need them again. I'm sure that you will all know how that is!!



Now that the little hooky stick has resurfaced again I really do want to get going with my summer garden granny squares ~ I desperately want to finish the little summer garden throw that I seem to have working on for ages. I have told myself that there are no more projects to be started until this WIP has been finished and as an added incentive to get it finished I have promised myself a new batch of Lucy inspired yarn once it's done. Better start crocheting quick then!!

I'm looking forward to catching up with you all sometime next week and I hope that everyone has a very lovely weekend :O) xx

I hope things are progressing in some shape or form with your house sale - however slowly. We are just finalising details to put our home on the market - scary and stressful days! And not making for much blogging action either, specially as I have just discovered that my camera cable has been 'tidied' to an unknown destination... and all my sewing and crochet equipment is boxed up :(

Still, the lovely weather stops me feeling to blue at the moment, and hopefully it will encourage people to view our houses and put in nice juicy offers!

Hi, nice to see you back.

Don't worry we all get times when there is nothing to blog about....I just usually blog about anything at these times! :o) Real Life does get in the way sometimes....how dare it?! lol

I'm loving the crochet squares. I have finally brought another 'how to learn' book so I am *hoping* that this could well be the one. I'm keeping my fingers crossed - now just have to find some time to have a go. Eeek!

Take care xx

Lovely to hear from you Jackie - I know what you mean - sometimes there just isnt the time or inspiration to blog!! I hope you are getting some views of your house - it must be frustrating when you want to move. I am so glad you found your trusty hook! I have ordered some Lucy cotton and cant wait for it to arrive! x

I know what you mean about loosing your hook.I put my only 4mm metal hook down, then start to panic when I can't find it .Who ever thought plastic crochet hooks were a good idea obviously doesn't crochet!!
Loving you flower garden squares ,by the way.

If you are anything like me I'm loosing everything all the time. I sit down to hook, can't find the hook, sit down again, can't find my glasses, sit down again can't find the scissors, it goes on and on....
