Excitement and finished projects.

Hello lovely people, I hope you are all well.

We have had a tiny bit of a cold snap here ( no snow, boo!) so I was pleased to have finished my Little Daisy Scarf. It started off as a random bunch of colours.


Then grew and grew and grew.


Until it was a warm, snuggly and very, very long!


Did I mention it was super snuggly?


Then I started on a mostly pink blanket … For one of two special little girls.

Pretty pink. The other blanket will have more purple in it.

There has also been a little chill out time with my girlie and her friends this week.


Cakes were made, then bought, then consumed(we pretended of course!) it’s so lovely to have time with her when she has taken her nose from out of her tablet. I do try to restrict screen time as ┬ámuch as I can and take her out on her bike and to dancing but it’s still tough sometimes.

My very, very exciting news is that this arrived today …


I just couldn’t resist … I spin on a Walking Wheel but it’s so big and has to stay at the museum. My lovely mum gave me her spinning wheel but I’m convinced it doesn’t like me! So I took the plunge and bought a new treadle wheel. I can’t wait to get some yummy fibre to spin. As soon as I have built the wheel ( oh dear … Could take some time!!) and spun something on it I will show you all!!

Until next time, I’ll be building spinning wheels and crocheting blankets!

Happy New Year!

Hello gorgeous fairy folk I hope you are well and not too soggy.

Hasn’t it rained ( I know that may be the understatement of the year so far!) Even in sunny little Jersey it has rained and rained … Oh and rained some more. For the first time this week I managed to collect Little Miss H without getting totally soaked.

Anyhow, what have I been up to you may ask. Well there has been crochet rug making


Here is a different angle for you


Look at my happy flowers pretending it’s not winter! Little Miss H has claimed the rug … Although I still have quite a few rounds to go.

Then there was quite a bit of this


Some of this


Scarf making … I have to say it is taking longer than anticipated to complete my 29 squares! I hope to have them complete before the really cold weather hits!

I think the reason my makes are taking so long is because I have been lured by the gorgeousness of felt flowers! Here is my next attempt in the making!


Daisies and a bright yellow chrysanthemum that makes me smile! Hope to show you the finished article soon!

Until next time, I’ll be trying to finish off projects!
