A collection 

This may not be the sort of collection you expect to see here, but you may see a few of them over the next while.  I’ve always been prepared for a challenge, especially a creative one! So, when I realised just how much I disliked Granny Squares I thought it was time to find out…

A Granny Square Is Just Like Life 

On the front  Perfect! Or is it?  To create the perfection there are always loose ends with which to deal.  Big or small. Old or young. We all try to hide those loose ends.  If you wonder where I am you can be assured that I’m just weaving in some of my loose ends that…

I must be a stitcher at heart

Another crocheted blanket is almost finished. I have only been able to spend a limited time on this each day – in fact – some days it has had to lie quiet – taking second place to accounts! Yes, the end of the financial year always brings those joys with it! Last night I hooked…

Another week passes

I have to say that creativity is keeping me sane at the moment. I keep hoping that normal service will be resumed next week – but …..  I’m not doing anything earth shattering – not enough ‘head space’ for that – but doing something each day is a vital part of my timetable. As always…

Almost a month…

No apologies for the lack of post – LIFE must come first, and it has continued to do so. Daily creativity has continued, the nine patches are almost up to date (today’s is still drying and will be published before nightfall) and the crochet has taken on a life of its own. I’m finding that…

Done and dusted

And so we step into October! The last month gone forever – done, and dusted! 2015 seems to have sped by, but September dragged its heels somewhat. This was probably because it didn’t go as expected – and there is nothing like the unexpected to create interest in life….. so no complaints! I began the…

A confession 

I confess to being exhausted! I’m sure you know the feeling – no inspiration to do anything and you know that something else going wrong will just mean floods of tears! It’s been a chapter of disasters. No need to go into details, but let’s just say water and internet and leave it at that….

Catch-up

Things haven’t been as simple as I might have expected, so  I haven’t been online much – if at all, but I don’t want you to think that I’m ‘slacking’! Here is a little slideshow of some of my daily creativity since my last post. You will notice too that the crochet is progressing.
