I have made a Tumblr account and so I will be posting updates there instead. Feel free to follow me :) here
We are settling in well into our new house (I will take pictures as soon as I can) but we have been ill over the last week or so and so things are not coming on as fast as they might, but never mind. We have had lots of wood delivered to the house for our open fire which is roaring away nicely and we are slowly sorting all the jobs that need doing and catching up on all the things we have missed over the last 3 weeks. I will let you know what is going on in more detail in the next few days, but I need to find my brain first!
This is a picture I was sent by lovely Isabelle who is making these mice for her family. Thank you Isabelle, it is lovely to see what people are making with the patterns.
Feel free to send pictures of your finished projects :)
It is official, we are moving on Monday! The house is in chaos and there will be no internet for the fist 2 1/2 weeks, but we are off!
There will not be much happening on the website, but hopefully soon there will be lots of new things to see including video tutorials on crochet, cards and embroidery.
Thank you for your patience in advance :) and next time I write, we will live in Newcastle! We have not been to the house, but this is what we have been promised....
This is what we have at the moment..... I can't wait!
I have decided to not carry on with the Green Monster Mondays for the same reason as before (I am rushing to get the pattern done and I am not doing my best work) I will instead with any luck be adding more crafts to the site and uploading tutorial videos onto Youtube when I have something to show. I will still be making the crochet patterns, so don't worry, but I will be adding cards and embroidery to the site as well.
I added the Cute Cat pattern to the website today :)
We are STILL waiting to hear about moving house (it has been about 6 months now!) but we might be exchanging contracts today to move a week today (Monday), but who knows!
I will keep you informed of what is going on, and if you would like to know when the crochet patterns are going up, please let me know and I will contact you (I will not send you anything else, don't worry!)
The cow is coming on well. I was hoping she would be ready by now, but it is always last minute with me :( She will be up on Monday as the Green Monster Monday pattern
I have made a good start on my cow design (it did nearly turn into a cat at one point!) I will be trying to finish her today.
I have had a think about what I am doing with my work and I really want to help animals and so I am writing a crochet book to raise awareness of the issues there are surrounding them. I have 11 patterns that I can already use and I will be making more in the coming weeks. Green Monster Mondays will still happen, so nothing really changes on the website, but the patterns will eventually be made into a book :)
I am currently making a cow and will put up pictures soon!
I posted the new Mr Mouse pattern yesterday and I am still getting on well with the Cacodemon. I have had a few rough days this week missing my Dad, but I think I am over the worst now.
We have still heard nothing about moving.....
I have not been running for the last 2 days because I hurt my knee (I don't think it appreciates all the extra weight I put on!) but I did manage 10 miles again so it wasn't a fluke!
I have been getting on well with my Cacodemon (a Doom monster) and I have taken a picture for you to see. I think I might do something else for a while as I have been crocheting around and around all day.
I have been listening to some YouTube clips by Anthony Robbins and it has done me the world of good. I have sorted out what I want to do with my life and I have started getting there. I have been drifting for a long time and the uncertainty of moving hasn't helped.
