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

Oooooooooo it's a cold one here today! When we set out to school this morning there was a thick blanket of icy fog covering the landscape and my weather app was showing a -6° temperature. Minus SIX!! This is very... Continue reading

J and I took a short walk in the woods on Monday afternoon, you know when you sometimes crave the simplicity of nature, fresh air and a gentle tramp along familiar pathways? I honestly felt the pull so strongly on... Continue reading

Isn't it amazing how quickly Friday's seem to roll around, I swear it's only been 12.5 minutes since I was here chatting about part three of the SP-CAL and here we are already moving onto part four. I'm hoping your... Continue reading

It's been snowing here today in Atticland - not a huge amount, but enough to beautifully dust the hills and rooftops and see us setting out to school this morning fully wrapped up against the flurry of freezing flakes. Little... Continue reading

We ventured out into the cold, cold wintry countryside yesterday, J and I, for a brisk walk around Grimwith reservoir. As you can see, the water levels are frightening low (photos from April last year show how full it was... Continue reading

Hello petals, how has your week been? Tell me, has it contained plenty of happy moments, and possibly a little hooky action? Have you been closing your eyes at night and seeing neat rows of pretty floral inspired colour? Have... Continue reading

Do you know something, I do really rather like January for it's sheer newness and optimistic feel. As is the norm, I have been rather late sorting out my new calendars (I have four throughout the house) and still have... Continue reading

I've been thinking a lot about my personal crochet journey of late, about how I started out on this pathway eleven years ago and how it has always been all about the blankets for me. It's a curious thing that... Continue reading

I confess I do find this time of year a challenge, and I swear I can feel my body and soul actually droop as the days shorten. It's as if someone invisible (and a little bit mean) decides to gently... Continue reading
