Just found this in drafts from 2016. So much has changed since then.

2016, where did the rest of the time go?

Hello! Boy it has been a while. I have changed jobs, I am now a Taxi Driver...lol
and most days I work 12 hours and 5/6 days a week so I don't get much time to do alot.

I did manage to complete a Rainbow Blanket, which was part of a yarn club I joined hosted by the lovely Samantha at Unbelievawool, I first bought some of her yarn at Wonderwool Wales last year, I followed her Facebook group and well I have to say I love her colourways in her yarn.

Yes I actually finished a Blanket, I have started a few more of course! But with this one I could take to work as it was small squares, and I finished the blanket at the craft group I go to once a month.

2018...Hello

Well I wasn't sure if i could still sign in, but here I am. 

Doubt there are any people but this is mostly for me to try and keep on at my temperature blanket.

I am using Attic 24's Woodland blanket as a pattern, using the lowest and highest temperatures of the week. So that will be 104 rows (I hope)
If it snows then I might add a white row, so it may be more than 104.



So as this first week is already over the first two rows are going to be Turquoise and Mint, my foundation chain is going to be grey, as will any border.

Nearly the end of June

Where does the time go. I had hoped time would go slower as I got older, but no it seems you blink and it's gone. 
Here is my current project originally it was a shawl I was making with this yarn but I decided I did not like it. So I saw a fab tutorial on YouTube by Bag 'O' Day. Not sure about it now as she did say it was an XL size but I will be amazed if this fit a child. I am determined to finish this. 
I will try and get pics of my current WIP,s and post them on here.

 Oh one more thing 
Do you like my tattoo?

Have a good day xxx

Woolly Stuff


I have been hooking as usual, not much to show but I have started yet again another blanket. I did some fingerless mitts. And some CAL mystery squares 
Oh and I was making yet another blanket.
I have some yarn pics to share






Love to craft

Today was Quiltathon day in Old Dalby, I did arrive at 9am I certainly didn't make it to 11pm, even though it is called that it is just a do whatever craft you wish from 9am to 11pm. I left just before 8pm. I did a workshop today. Making a heart decoration. And I made my second tablemat set, had to add Cats!
When I left I had started a bag, here it is when I got home. Just the outside done.
But had a play today it is nearly finished just need to put handles on it now. For my first bag I am quite pleased. I did sort of ignored the instructions after a while as they were confusing me.
