House hunting

I’m still here, although I don’t know where the last few weeks have gone! G and I have started looking for a house to buy, it’s a minefield. In April we will have been living together for a year and it’s been great, we get on so well and it’s so natural šŸ˜Š

We are probably going to stay in Newport and we are starting to look around to see what’s out there. It’s all very exciting! It will be so nice to have our own little place in the world šŸ˜Š

The most important thing for me is a room for all my yarn and fabric šŸ˜‚Ā  oh, and G wants a garden lol…I’m more of an indoor cat myself šŸ˜øĀ  although it is nice to be able to pop outside and soak up a few rays of sunshine…for like 5 minutes anyway šŸŒ¤

Speaking of fabric, I am working on another test piece…I can’t share yet but I’m looking forward to the end result, the pattern is great with some neat tricks. I’ve not done much sewing lately so this is a fun way to get back in the swing of things.Ā 

I’m a little bit behind on the 365Challenge sampler quilt, I’ve not done any more since my last post but I am hoping to get together with my sewing friends in a few weeks, so I’m planning on doing some cutting out to take with me, the blocks are small so I won’t have to carry too much. I love getting together with my sewing friends, I’ve learned so much from them both and they are great at encouraging me to try new things. I can’t wait to see them again for a good natter šŸ˜Š

I’ve been plodding along slowly with the Woodland Blanket crochet-along by Attic24, hence why I’ve not been sewing much. I like the fact I can just snuggle up on these cold, dark evenings with my hook and just plod along with it. Week 5 of the CAL is up tomorrow…I’m still on week one šŸ˜®Ā  but it will be a gift for my Nephew for his 4th birthday which isn’t until the end of March so I have plenty of time. I actually only have 3 or 4 more rows left to go and I will then be on Week 2. I am enjoying the pattern so much, it works up quickly and the effect is stunning šŸ˜ŠĀ Ā 

I think my tension is a little off, it looks a bit wider than it should be, but I’ve not measured it as I will end up wanting to start again so I am just going to keep going and if I run out of yarn, I’ll just buy more šŸ˜‚Ā 

It’s so pretty šŸ’šĀ  I never imagined I would enjoy colours like this, I’m much more of a black/purple/blue/pink kinda girl, but the colours in this blanket just make me feel warm and happy. I love the look of some of the other blankets by Attic24 so I think I will have a go at those some time in the future…once I have a house with more room to store all the yarn šŸ˜

I hope everyone has had a creative few weeks, let me know what you’ve been up to!

Happy crafting and have a great weekend šŸ’œĀ  xxx šŸ’œ
