It has been quite some time since I visited blogland. Apart from my quick entry yesterday I have been away for exactly 6 months. I really can't believe how the time as flown. Work and home life has taken over now I am working more hours and have little time to do the extra stuff. However I have been sharing my crochet on instagram and though I might share some of my most recent makes with you. Please pop over using the little instagram button at the side for a peek and please say hi! 

This is a cushion I started recently from the Emma Lamb book Crochet Home. I'm still only this far and working on it.

My Spice of life blanket, pattern by Sandra at Cherry Heart. I started the border once in teal but didn't like it. Planning to use sage instead.

My rainbow V-Stitch blanket is enormous! Still picking it up every now and then but really need to finish this before the summer. Little people love hiding under it and it's great for den building.

Hope you enjoyed your visit

Textures For Ideas

Had a trip to Landguard a couple of weeks ago and finally took time to look at the photos today. Some lovely textures and patterns. I like to take textural pics of details and patterns when I'm out and about and keep them for ideas for future projects.

Our family had a lovely time exploring all the way to the point. The little people had wonderful fun making stone stacks, collecting shells and pebbles and helping me find sea glass treasure. It was freezing cold and windy but the adventure kept us going for just long enough. My pockets were full to the brim as we walked back to the car carrying several small rocks Little Man really absolutely needed to take home.

My plan is to use these lovely photos as a starting point for some textile experiments at some point very soon. My head is full of ideas at the moment. I just need a little more time...

Thank you for visiting.
Really hoping to be back very soon.
