My little boy has been under the weather with a sickness bug for a few days. Its kept him off school and he missed his swimming lesson and lego club so he has been less than impressed. He told me yesterday afternoon that he would feel better if he had a new toy but as I…… Continue reading Crochet to cheer up my boy
The boy has been asking for a sock monkey forever. I kept saying I would do it but never actually getting around to doing it. Today he brought me a pair of old socks and gave me sad puppy dog eyes. He knows how cute he is.
Its been a while since I picked up a crochet hook so I decided to make a friend a mini margarita to go with the reverse canvas I made using my cameo. I really need to start crocheting again. I am always happier/calmer when I do. Day 26 of RED JANUARY is now done. The…… Continue reading Oh look some crochet!
I now have a lovely lovely craft room because my lovely lovely husband helped me move things around in the house. The only bad thing about this is now said lovely husband has a much better idea of how much crafty stuff I had hidden around the house! Oops!!!

Square 47 does have a pattern, a very easy pattern. Its called the Open Granny Square I really need to start sewing these things together!
I just haven’t had it in me to blog over the last few days. I have been doing my squares though. Square 42 – I made it up. It wasn’t all that successful. I was also in a bit of a depression fog so I can’t actually remember what I did. It makes me laugh…… Continue reading A few days off -the blogging not crochet
It is still unpleasantly grey here in Baku but today was a better day mental health wise. It started off wobbly when for the first time this year I could not bring myself to get out of bed. I had my head under the duvet and a few tears until 10am. I managed to get…… Continue reading A better day 🙂
