Hello everyone, lovely to see you back at the Toadstool!

I have had a busy week I can tell you! With kids off for summer holidays it has been non-stop. Fortunately Little Miss H can be persuaded to do a little bit of this …


So I can take advantage and do a little bit of this…


I have so many friends that are having babies at the moment my fingers are on constant alert! And so I have been very busy hooking up lots of baby treats such as these gorgeous little slippers! Oh and these …


Sadly I really like the little pattern on the soles


And this little elf hat too!


One baby blanket is ready and complete with border.


The dotty one is awaiting and looking at me from my pile of what can only be described as hooky related ‘stuff’.


Although most of the pile will disappear once babies have arrived! The blue bootees and hat have already been delivered.  I was very brave and tried a cardigan too – it’s in my ‘work in progress’ pile as typically I ran out of yarn – can you spot it? It is made from the most softest Debbie Bliss cotton – I love the colour – yum. It still needs a few rows along the bottom and the pattern (which I abandoned and just did my own thing instead) had sleeves I kind of like it without. Here it is for a closer look!


My mind is still abuzz with lots of things yet to make it onto my hook … but wait and see … there is bound to be more hooky goodness just around the corner – I’m thinking driftwood and something yarny. Oh and there may be something unexpected coming up soon too!

On the visiting front I’ve been very busy entertaining my gorgeous children and here are some of the interesting things that we have seen …



Dolmens – with Little Miss H being very brave and entering the dark, cool, wet tunnel.


This was the grid over the well next to the dolmen – isn’t it lovely.



Deceased Moles –

I know, who knew that an innocent walk in the woods could end in tragedy. He was lying on the path and beady eyed Little Miss H spotted him. She wanted to take him home with us – I quote ‘ I can be like Doc McStuffins and fix him’ I delicately pointed out that it may be past saving. It was an interesting ‘circle of life’ conversation as I persuaded her to leave it behind in the leaves. Although I did check the bags to ensure that moley hadn’t been smuggled home! Oh and also used a lot of antibacterial handwash. Bless her and bless moley too.


Phew, what a very busy week! I hope that you have had a lovely one and that the weather is being kind.

Until next time, I hope you are fitting in some ‘me-time’. (or should that be hooky time?!)
