I am sat writing this lovely chatty post after spending days and days (and more days) working on the most humungous tutorial you ever did set your eyes on, gosh it really has been a labour of love. In fact,... Continue reading

I feel like my feet just aren't really touching the ground at the moment, I just cannot seem to catch my breath somehow. The weeks are taking on a warp-speed feel, and here I am, stuttering around in a dither,... Continue reading

So I have been struck down yet again with a serious case of Mandala Madness, I just cannot get enough of these colourful circles at the moment. I was really inspired by seeing my big hula hoop creations hanging from... Continue reading

Oh Yarndale 2016, already in the past but still a very, very vivid set of memories at the forefront of my mind, that's for sure. This week I am just starting to get my energy back and feeling just about... Continue reading

1. My mandala hoops looked wonderful hanging/spinning/swinging under the trees at the weekend, although the windy conditions made them ever so slightly hazardous it has to be said. I want to make more! Mandala Madness has gripped me!! 2. Yarndale... Continue reading

I wonder how many of you remember the large Starflower Mandalas I obsessed over crocheted two years ago? When I started making the first one, it was simply a case of I-have-to-make-this-right-NOW, with no thoughts whatsoever about what I was... Continue reading

I've had socks-on-the-brain this week (I'll explain why in a bit), and it occurred to me this morning that I could really do with having a little chat about the socks I've made since my last update back in May.... Continue reading

Ahhh September, such a nostalgic, emotional, heart felt time of year this is, don't you think? The slow changing of the seasons, the return to school routines after the gentle pleasure of summer holidays, and the excitement of a new... Continue reading

It's been exactly one week since we've been home from our Summer holidays, and already it feels pretty distant. A sweet, fading layer of images, feelings and happy memories that linger constantly in the background of my mind as I... Continue reading

Here we are at the end of week four of our summer holiday, and I am loving these long, slow Summer days. They are so beautiful and kind of full and precious I think. We haven't been up to much... Continue reading

One of the things I most love about my involvement with Yarndale* is the creative bits and bobs that I am responsible for. The Yarndale team is made up of five people and each of us have different jobs to... Continue reading

Whilst I was away from the Attic through June and early July, a great deal of my time was filled with yarn infested thoughts. This is a busy time for me with a huge amount of Yarndale work happening behind... Continue reading

I planted up my back yard pots sometime in the middle of May when it was still rather depressingly cold and wet. I stuck with my usual assortment of cheap and cheerful brightly coloured annuals, purchased here and there from... Continue reading

Isn't it funny how some words ease into our language without us even really noticing? I was thinking this morning about the word "Constitutional" which J introduced me to many, many years ago. I doubt I even knew exactly what... Continue reading

I have come to realise that over the years I've become pretty addicted to writing and sharing Ta-dah posts here on my blog. I love the feeling of bubbly excitement that rises as I upload the photo-story, and the pure... Continue reading
