The return of crochet Mo-jo!

Hello everyone! hope you are all fine and dandy on this grey day.

I have been feeling a little out of crochet sorts recently. I put it down to the heat. I just couldn’t face picking up a crochet hook and wool – fabric yes – wool no. It was so hot that even the garden was suffering and I couldn’t sit out on the patio (scorching!) but it was great for drying clothes!

How cute are Little Miss H’s pj’s and beach cover-up … wish they did them in my size! The heat also gets me in the mood for a spot of favourite place visiting (also known as avoiding the beach!)


Hamptonne Country Life Museum in Jersey is one of my very favourite places – especially the meadow with the stream running through it and cows! Here’s Little Miss H trying to be brave and get up close to them (she’s carrying a bat just in case you’re wondering – not sure why!) The coffee is also good and the cafe has this to hold it’s cutlery.



Ahhh, upcycling! What a genius idea – from something old and unloved (albeit very sad) comes something new, functional and inspired! The beautiful mirror that you can just about see has the specials written on it! I love this idea and may try it in my own home (when it is straight and redecorated … sometime in the next decade I would think!)

So anyway, back to the crochet! Well I recently completed an owl to be sent on it’s merry way to the UK. But I fancied something a bit bigger ( I feel a blanket calling … a ripple to be precise… to use all my little odd bits of yarn … a blanket of many colours!) this time it is another Bear Hood for a lovely lady. I have orders for about four of these so I thought I’d get a wiggle on. I’m loving it. I’d forgotten quite how much I love crochet! But anyway … the mojo is back.



Yup my crochet mojo has returned! I look forward to showing you the progress of the hood in my next post!

Until next time, I will be crocheting up a storm! (hopefully not literally looking at the ex-hurricane that seems to be heading our way)

  1. Didn’t realise you lived in Jersey. Picture with cows looks quite idyllic. Look forward to seeing the hood (and ripply blanket!)

  2. Yes, came over when I was young and never left!!! The hood is coming along slowly but not started ripple yet! X

  3. I am just doing a round robin email to all my swap participants in the My Home to Your Home swap and couldn’t find your contact details – it was to check back that everyone is ok with their swap and has contacted their partners with address/etc for posting – let me know if you need any help with anything and happy swapping.
