Fitting it all in

Sharing is caring!

Don’t you just hate it when life is too busy for you to pick up your hook? To be fair, while there is a lot on behind the scenes I do try to take some time out just to kick back and relax with the family. I thought I would share some of my adventures over the last few days with you guys.

Jurgen and Ernie in the woods

No day is ever really complete for me without a dander up in the woods. I have probably mentioned them about a thousand times but I do find them to have such a restorative power it would be remis of me not to include them, plus my 2 fluffy butts love them as much as me.

Coming soon

My poor testers are flat out at the moment on 2 new designs the first of which is the easy block blanket which with a bit of luck will be available later this week. I have also finally gotten around to launching my beginner’s guide to crochet online, so if you know anyone out there that wants to learn, all shares of my wee guide would be very much appreciated. It features terms, yarn weights, hook holding, basic stitch, pattern reading, granny guide, scarf and flower patterns to try! Lots and lots in there and I’d love to hear your feedback.

My abandoned bike (purple bell!)

I also managed to squeeze a bike ride in this week. Around the local quieter roads. And I stumbled across this old ruin around the Dundalk area. I had never seen it before and managed to snap a pic before the light faded completely. I must get back another time for a wee nosey around it.

Ruins in the rapeseed field

And last but not least, I managed to fit in another passion of mine, music. My husband’s Nirvana cover band, Negative Creeps were playing so I packed the family up and went down to watch.

My plan for the rest of today is to make a start on the Bobalicious Baby blanket order that I have been putting off (do you do this? Master procrastinator) and maybe watch the last few episodes of Ozark. Whatever you are getting up to today, drop me a line and let me know.
