The kids were very excited when it started to snow last night they went to bed dreaming of waking up to a Baku snow day. Much to my delight and their dismay we woke up to a chilly temperature but no snow. That plus the fact that one of my best mates gets ridiculously excited…… Continue reading Snowflakes and photography.
Earlier blog today because its hubby has a work event for us to attend so I thought I had better get the square done before we go. I went for a run today with Liz and the rescue dog that is currently living in her house (much to the displeasure of her cats). Poor little…… Continue reading Sunflowers and running with a dog
Today was a long day! I didn’t sleep much because I drank a bottle of wine while I spent 3 hours on the phone to my dad and didn’t hang up until after 1am. I woke up with a killer headache on a school holiday which is never fun. I do however have fab friends…… Continue reading Strawberry fields forever.
Square number 19 is made using the puff stitch. It was my first time using it. I love how it feels but I imagine it uses a lot of yarn in a big project. I should have done am extra round on the square, it’s a bit wonky and the edge join isn’t quite right.…… Continue reading Rainbow Puff
Second run training done. We took 40 minutes to run 2.63 miles (only 10.4 miles short of the half marathon we will be running – eek!) alternating between a two-minute walk and a one minute run following the 21K app from Vandersoft Apps. Safe to say we need all the help we can get. I…… Continue reading Lacy Flowers and a run.
I love this square. Its easy and looks good and its easy so it easy its worth repeating. I saw a few patterns online and after a read through realised if you can do a basic granny you can do this, no pattern following required. I didn’t add a finally round to mine because I…… Continue reading Mitred Grannys
I am knackered! Today was the first run training session for team Baku. For reasons I can no longer remember we decided that we would run the Great North Run in September. 13.2 miles. Today we managed 2.6 miles. Safe to say we need all the training we can get. I did feel good at…… Continue reading Two threads and ten across.
Today was not a good day. I drank too much red wine last night then spent 2 hours on the phone to some of my family at home. I found half a packet of cigarettes in a coat pocket and because I was pretty drunk I thought it would be a great idea to smoke…… Continue reading Twinkle twinkle
Square number 14 had to be an easy one because I swear my brain is still a little bit broken from the woven one. So instead of looking up a pattern to follow I made a striped square using double crochet in green and purple. It looks like the wallpaper I had in my bedroom…… Continue reading Stripe and easy
Square 13 sucked. I can safely say I will not be making this particular pattern again. The video is great to follow but from the moment I started I wished it was done!! The video is a Yarnutopia tutorial Wonky and pants. The crochet was possible not helped by the 3 very yummy Chinar Julips…… Continue reading Never again!!
