It's so good to be back on line and I have been having so much fun catching up with everyone in blog land - I have so missed all the creative inspiration on offer.
Everyone will be glad to hear that I have moved on from my crochet coaster phase (my daughters were fearing coaster Christmas presents for the next ten years) but I am still loving to crochet, so I am attempting my very first stripey blanket - and I love it.
I bought some Debbie Bliss Amalfi in the most exquisite colours when I was with Kate and the idea of a blanket was born.
Through my blog travels I have decided to join Ginny's Yarn Along. Every week on a Wednesday knitters, and crocheters link up
and share a photo (or two) of what they are making and what they are
reading. I thought this would give me the motivation to read more and also it will be lovely to see what everyone else is making so lots of ideas and inspiration - check out my Wednesday Yarn along post.
I always read Sandra's cherryheart blog and have just joined in with her "Making a Pretty Crafty Home in 2012" it's about house
improving, house de-cluttering, pretty home making, and lots of amazing crafty projects. It includes doing crafty things to improve your home, making homes more of a pleasurable environment to be in, Sandra says that" if you
can thrift and recycle your way there" - so much the better!
I am late starting as it all began at the beginning of the year but I am sure it will still be great fun to be part of the project.
Off to crochet another stripe before I start cooking dinner.
