Can you believe that tomorrow is March! Spring has arrived here and I feel I should go out and take some photos to show you how lovely it is here. However I may wait a week or two until a few more daffodils are out. Elsie has recovered from her chicken pox and is now … More Plans for my next project.
Today was a manic day for me. After herding the children and husband out of the house to go to church so we’d get there early we managed to get there just as the service was starting (it’s the same every week no matter what time we leave). We then came home and had a … More Babushka doll keyring
Here’s the finished cushion! I finally got the cushion cover finished last night at midnight as I was determined to get it finished for this weekend. I really enjoyed making it even though the pattern for the front was quite time consuming to make. I think it looks quite impressive but to be honest anyone … More The finished crocheted cushion.
Sorry for not doing any posts recently but what with my children having chicken pox and me having to design my church magazine, I’ve barely had time to do any crochet. Anyway I’m pleased to say the cushion pad arrived a couple of days ago. I got a fantastic round cushion pad from ebay which … More The end is nigh!
Hey folks. I just though I’d say hi and that I haven’t forgotten you. It’s been a very stressful weekend for me. My 9 month old baby has chicken pox, I naively thought she’d more or less breeze through it like my 3 year old did 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately her torso and scalp is covered … More Sad mama.
Sorry it’s been a couple of days since my last post but I felt that I hadn’t done enough rounds worth a post. So here is a little update so far.

So after putting the girls to bed I sat down on the sofa and put ‘Call the Midwife’ on the TV (it’s a drama set in 1950’s London following a group of midwives attached to a convent – sounds … More My cushion so far.
Yesterday I took myself down to the wool shop and spent an enjoyable half hour choosing balls of wool for my next project. I found some gorgeous merino wool 50% off and thought that they would compliment my existing stash. I’ve already decide that my next big project will be a Blooming flower cushion, so … More A crochet flower brooch
Since I finished crocheting a dress for Elsie to wear to her dedication ceremony (see below) I’ve been wondering what to crochet next. I’ve been going though some magazines and looking online for some inspiration and have found a couple of funky things. This cushion and blanket is just so gorgeous , the colours really compliment each … More So many things to crochet…so little time
Today Poppy and I decided we would have craft time! We tidied up the living room so we could pull out the dining table so we would have lots of space for our things. I asked Poppy what she wanted to do so she brought me a magazine so she could cut out the … More Craft time!
