Crochet Comfort


Hello friends.
Firstly, just want to say thank you for all the visits to my little blog recently.
 It's a lovely feeling to know people take time to read my ramblings. I love the fact that we connect through the blogosphere sharing the things that we all love, 
it makes the world a smaller friendlier place!
I was laid low AGAIN this past week with the flu/cold/yuk bug.
Not happy.
Off work and not able to enjoy all the projects I have on the go at the moment.
Just sleep and daytime telly(yaaaawwwwwwnnnn).
All I managed was a couple of rows on my V stitch blanket.
Oh but what a comfort, snuggling underneath while I slowly hooked my way across the rows.
No thought required, no stress just soothing rhythm and flow. It has grown slowly the colours following in an organic way.
 No pattern repeat the colours blending together or singing out depending where they fall.

This week I'm back at work and frankly exhausted!
So I'm being gentle on myself, not doing too much,  sitting in the garden enjoying the signs of Spring, early nights, whisky(just a little bit!)
Hopefully my energy will return and I can get on!!!!!!
Hope you are all well and busy crafting and enjoying the start of Spring too.
Love
♥Sue♥

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer


Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.






I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!


Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.


That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
