A Change of Plan

I really struggled to sleep last night and I started thinking .... why am I starting another new blog when I have this old faithful right here? So I think I am going to have a little spring clean on my side bar to allow it to reflect where I am now in my life. We all change as we get older and so if I can do it then so can my blog. I will probably change the name of my blog to reflect this but it will still just be me rambling on as usual. 

Hopefully I will post most days, even if just a few lines about my day. I will also be sharing favourite recipes, updates on my fitness journey and loads of info on my new obsession of beauty boxes. I plan to share my views of the products inside these and also chat about any new things I have discovered. There will also be posts about Ruby, my gorgeous dog, as well as nights out and time spent with friends and family. Somewhere in it all there might even be some crafting to remind me of the good old days.

I am so happy to be back, can't wait to catch up with you all again after all this time and to meet lots of new bloggers too. Not sure how many of us oldies are still blogging 10 years on but I can't wait to find out.

Have a lovely Monday and I hope the week is good to you xxx


Gi guys, just a quick post to share a link for £5 off your first Birchbox Beauty box. Thought I would share here even though not craft related. I got mine just over a week ago and it is amazing!!!

Hope this is useful to some of you xx

My poor blog .... Any old friends out there? Wonder if I still know...

....... How to make a card!

I am feeling the need to start blogging again but feel nervous ...... It has been so long. I doubt I even know what to do any more.

Are any of my old buddies still out the?

First make of the year

Happy new year everyone. I hope you had a lovely time over the holidays. Can I just mention how awful the floods have been. There has been flooding all around me. Thankfully I was not affected but I know lots who were, it has just been awful.  

Onto happier things and here is my first make of the new year. It is a simple crochet bobble hat. It is such an easy hat to make and by doing the single crochet into the back of the loop it resembles a ribbed effect.

I love this wool.  Think I will make a matching scarf and mitts to go with it.  Right, that's it for now - hope to be back soon xxx

Have a great week guys ..... hope to be back soon xxxxxxxxxxx

Time for a change ............

I have decided to have a bit of a revamp of my blog. Over the next few weeks I shall start to have a good old clear out and update it to reflect my current crafting.  It is in dire need of bringing up to date and I hope to start using it much more often like I used to do when I was paper crafting.

I hope lots of you continue to follow me as I share my new crafting creations.

Enjoy the summer and see you soon xxx

My latest project ..... Lily Pond Blanket

I have discovered 2 amazing blankets that I want to crochet. I really could not decide which to make first but in the end I have decided to make this gorgeous Lily Pond blanket.
The pattern is free and is made in lots of different blocks which are joined together. I just adore it. I bought my wool yesterday for the project and couldn't wait to get started.

I have to say that I didn't really move from my sofa from the middle of the afternoon until I finally went to bed. I did manage to complete my first block though so I am happy about that. I think hubby is dreading this project because the housework is probably just going to have to wait hahaha.  Here is my first completed block.

I shall keep you all up to date with how my blanket is coming along. If you would like to make one too the pattern can be found here
