We're having some very moody weather at the moment, the whip end of some storm with a name that I can't remember right now*. Fierce, blustery winds and rain, rain, rain, the sort of weather that tells you in no... Continue reading

In my quest to fortify my low iron stores, I've found myself loitering in the veggie aisle in the supermarket checking out all the green stuff on offer (tender stem broccoli, purple sprouting broccoli, cavelo nero, spinach etc). Although I... Continue reading

On Monday morning I woke up feeling just a smidgeon brighter that I have done in quite a while. So after the school drop off I decided to try and manage a short walk, just a gentle stroll up the... Continue reading

I've got some gorgeous tulips blooming away merrily on my table right now, they are really unbelievably lovely. They seem to be have an extra layer of petals which makes them sort of semi-ruffled and quite flouncy. I keep stopping... Continue reading

January is a month where I feel an instinctive need to hunker down, retreat into semi-hibernation, restore energy levels and revel in the cosy comforts of home. It's a slow-living month, a time for contemplation and gentle planning, for taking... Continue reading

Hello my yarny friends! I thought it was about time I shared some more of my sock knitting progress with you, following my revelation about the pointy sticks back in November last year. Well the first thing to say is... Continue reading

It's always a mixed blessing when you come to the end of a big, happy crochet project. There is so much rejoicing when a pile of squares finally becomes a blanket after many months of work, but also a little... Continue reading

Hello Karen Many thanks for the yummy cappuccino, much appreciated!! Im so sorry but I never wrote a tutorial for the sweet flower granny pattern. Truthfully the flower squares were a real pain to make, fiddly and a tonne of ends to darn, so I kind of fell a bit out of love for them in the end. You could adapt the pattern and leave out the flowers, making 8 round grannies surrounded by smaller 4 round ones, join as you go? I made a blanket like this once and it turned out beautiful. Happy hooking 😊 Love Lucyxxx Sent from Windows Mail From:Typepad Sent:‎Thursday‎, ‎14‎ ‎January‎ ‎2016 ‎21‎:‎25 To:Lucy Attic24 A new comment from “karen Frost” was received on the post “Sweet Flower Granny Blanket :: Ta-dah!” of the blog “Attic24”.

I really like the phrase "under the weather", especially given my mild obsession with all things seasonal and weather related. I looked it up just now and found out that the phrase comes from British sailing ships, fancy that! So... Continue reading

Today, for approximately two whole hours, it actually stopped raining. Not only that, but the rain clouds scurried off over the horizon leaving us with a blissful open air ceiling of clear blue sky dancing with light. Oh sunshine, how... Continue reading
