Twice this week I've had evening dates with Little B. At seven o'clock on the dot he comes to get me and no matter what I'm doing (crochet, knitting, social media-ing, blogging, laundry folding etc etc, the usual stuff that... Continue reading

I first discovered planning in the spring of 2015 when a search for some stickers led me to a whole online community of people who quite honestly seemed to be completely planner crazy. It was like tumbling down the most... Continue reading

It's been a misty, murky sort of a day today, with a view that was only half there. It's so strange when the familiar hilly landscape that I've become so fond of simply disappears, it's a bit of a visual... Continue reading

Seven thirty and my lovely Little Lady asks me if I'd like to head out for a walk with her. She is old enough to go out by herself if she wants to, but how can I resist when she... Continue reading

April is treating us kindly for the most part and it really does feel like Spring has finally sprung here. We took a walk at Bolton abbey on Sunday morning, just a shortish stroll through Strid Woods to breathe in... Continue reading

It's been cold here today, an un-spring-like three degrees, and as I sit here at my desk I can hear J cleaning out the grate ready for me to light the fire. We are straddling the seasons it seems, with... Continue reading

As the weeks whizz by and we're almost at the end of March, I am making time to share the short holiday that we took in February before the memories become too faded. We had our half term holiday during... Continue reading

I love catching up with you here Julie, your photos bring such a beautiful seasonal feel-good! I'm enjoying the light at this time of year, especially in the early mornings. It was light enough for me to sit and crochet without a lamp on at 6am this morning, such a lovely way to start my day xxxxxxxxxx

In my day to day life I spend much of my time alone, either at home or in my studio at Coopers Cafe. I don't mind this, not at all, in fact I really adore my quiet life and love... Continue reading

I've just had to check and double check my dates as I would have bet a serious amount of good chocolate on the fact that Stylecraft released new shades to their Special DK range this time last year, in the... Continue reading

It was our half term break last week. We seemed to have it a week later than pretty much the whole of the country and we were all so ready for some idle days of rest and relaxation. It was... Continue reading

Well here we are, ready for the final installment of the Sweet Pea CAL and what a bitter-sweet feeling it is to be nearing the end of our floral journey. I've been sat quietly working on the final border rows... Continue reading

We walked up to the top of town to Appreciate the Snowdrops on Friday. It was after lunch, a cold, sunny afternoon when it felt just right to be out doing such a simple thing. I've been visiting this patch... Continue reading

Surprise!!!!!! Bet you didn't expect to find a CAL post here this morning as we are officially on a "catch-up" week, but honestly it felt so strange for me not CAL-posting that I couldn't resist sneaking in a little extra... Continue reading

I seriously love the above photo in all it's faded, wintry mellowness. It was one of those misty, murky mornings that we seem to have experienced quite often this winter, when the days have felt very slow to get going.... Continue reading

I think in all the years that I've been creating and hosting my annual Crochet-A-Longs, the Sweet Pea has been the easiest blanket to keep up with. The Trellis Stripe is a fast pattern to hook, and once you've got... Continue reading

One of the downsides of working on a striped blanket is that it does start to take up a lot of room in the bag when you need to bring it out and about. Often this leads me to have... Continue reading
