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

If I could send you all a sweet little bunch of back yard flowers with my love and gratitude, I would. A couple of photos and a few words don't seem a huge amount to offer, but please know how... Continue reading

Hellooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my word, it's unbeleivably good to be back here in my precious little nook of cyberspace after such a long and unexpected break. I can't tell you how many times I've sat down in front of my computer... Continue reading

I've crocheted five blankets in the past year, and three blankets during the year before that, which adds up to a lot of blankety goodness here in the Attic as well as rather an impressive stash of left over yarn... Continue reading

At the weekend I swapped the hills of the Yorkshire Dales for the equally beautiful and equally hilly hills of the Derbyshire Peak District. I travelled with a good friend on Friday morning, and after three hours and three train... Continue reading

Walking home after the school run this morning, the shopping bag on my shoulder suddenly felt hugely heavy and I realised I was struggling. So I sat myself down on a nearby bench to rest a while in the dappled... Continue reading

I absolutely love and adore this time of year when Spring is in full throttle and there might even be some teensy whiffs of early Summer in the air. The days are long and light and the trees are slowly... Continue reading

Wreath making brings me a huge amount of creative joy, and over the years I've made five in total. The very first one I crocheted was the May Rose Wreath in 2012, and this was the start of a mild... Continue reading

I called at the supermarket this morning after dropping Little B at school and found myself predictably flitting round the flowers like a helpless butterfly. There are many supermarket flowers that don't float my boat, but a simple bunch of... Continue reading

I loved decorating my mantel for Easter this year, and once all the little eggs and felt pretties were packed away again it all looked rather depressingly bare. I do usually have some sort of crochet goodness on these branches... Continue reading
