Thanks Julie. It's a surround to a hatchway between the kitchen and the dining room - it was here when we moved in and we've changed lots around the house but I kind of like it so it has stayed.

It's not just you Annie, I too have a bag of yarns that is mentally labelled 'what was I thinking?' or things that I bought thinking they'd be a certain colour and they weren't. I am a terrible hoarder when it comes to yarn! I can definitely recommend the cosy pattern.

Hi Jo. I can't remember off hand which yarns I used, I have it jotted down somewhere and will have to look it out when I write up their descriptions (I have a rather disorganised and non-linear way of working unfortunately). I'm pretty sure at least one of them is Rowan British sheep breeds but I can't remember the colourway and I have a feeling it's been discontinued.

Thanks Vicki. Yes, the linen is lovely to knit with but I'd not want to do anything to complicated with it - it would be hard work to cable with I think. I didn't sew the lining of the basket - it's just full of lots of cloth project bags which makes it look that way :)

Thanks skeindalous, I wanted a vase that I could keep on the table year round and fill with different things depending on the season. This one came from Graham and Green...http://www.grahamandgreen.co.uk/alba-ceramic-vase (it's the smaller size)

Thanks Sarah, yes I was lucky to find a supplier here in the UK as I've wanted some of those spotty Art Viva needles for ages!

It's not so good unfortunately Lynsey, it's a bit too thin for jumpers and Fair Isle dresses but it works fine on a single colour bunny dress.

How are you doing so far this year? Are you on track with any New Years resolutions or have you, like me, already slipped from your aims before the end of the first month? Actually, I didn't really have any... Continue reading

There are a hundred things that I really should be getting on with today, I've really not got into the swing of things yet this year and am behind with all of my plans and aims. But this morning was... Continue reading

I hope your new year has got off to a good start. Here we're still acclimatising to our term time routines. It always takes a week or so to adjust, especially in the mornings as Toby is definitely not a... Continue reading

Just popping in very quickly to wish you all the best for 2016. Here are some of my happy moments from 2015. The year we got a new flock of hens; Toby had a hair cut and was very excited... Continue reading

Today I am knitting lace, eating clementines and brazil nuts, listening to the sweet voice of Kate Rusby and feeling a deep sense of well-being, calm and gentle joy. Because today the postman has brought a brown envelope containing not... Continue reading

It pains me to say it, but I have to admit defeat on finishing off the batch of seasonal themed animals. Time has not been on my side and I have a heap of unfinished animals here and not enough... Continue reading

Your Dad had some wise words :) thanks for sharing them Hazeyj. It's lovely reading about your Granddaughter too, she sounds like a little ray of sunshine - special people in our lives are always such a blessing. Thanks for taking the time to comment x

Thanks so much Michelle, both for the headspace suggestion (I'll look into this as meditating helps me too) and for your kind and supportive words. I hope you find what you need when things get too much, take care of yourself x

I'm so sorry to hear that Gillian. Like you say it has enormous impact on peoples lives when things are misinterpreted or taken out of context. I hope that things improve for you x

They sound like a wonderful organisation Michaela, just what is needed to really support families. I will see if there is anything similar in our area, we do have an organisation funded by the local authority that we've used in the past but this time when I contacted them they had too many cases on their books and so I filled out the form on my own. I'll be looking for guidance and support next time :)

You're right Jane, we do love them like they were newly born. All of those fierce, protective instincts are still firing on all cylinders because even though they've grown big and strong in body they are still so very vulnerable. We'll keep on battling as I'm sure you will too. All the best x

Thanks so much Carol. I'm not yet familiar with the Miss Read books but will be making her acquaintance soon based on the recommendations here and like you I love music - I often listen to classic FMs smooth classics when I need to calm my mind before sleep, like you say it can be wonderfully tranquil x

That's definitely a good plan Tana and we keep photocopies of everything we've ever submitted too. Unfortunately they seem to enjoy changing the forms each time so sections are moved about or completely changed and although you can take some of what you've written before you're often having to submit things in a different format. Anyway, it's done now so all we can do is wait for the next step and tackle that as and when it comes. Thanks so much for your good wishes x
