A special place to make a den (lots of whispering, giggling, and secret snack eating was enjoyed in here).
The usual daily routine has only just resumed around here as my girls went back to school on Monday and my husband went back to work after a ten day break. We had the most happy and blissful family staycation this Easter. Lazy mornings, followed by picnics in local parks, visiting family, lots of playtime and time to do nothing but snuggle up and watch a film together time...it was so, so lovely and we all benefited from this go-slow-go-with-the-flow type routine after such a hectic few months. It seemed to last longer than just two weeks, but how could it when it seems like April was over in a flash...just like that - whoosh, gone!
Of course I managed to pack in some crochet time during the copious amount of coffee and snack breaks we enjoyed. My autumn wreath had a more appropriate seasonal change...
I love this a lot, but more on that later as I need to spend more time to give credit to the designers of these wonderful flowers and leaf patterns. I know the daffodils here have now sadly faded away but if you want to recreate and keep them around and about for a little longer then you can find my free photo-tutorial for them on my last post.
I've also been loving the grannies I am currently working on...
I first mentioned them on this mandala post, way back at the beginning of March. I couldn't wait to get stuck into this project but I had to stop once I'd realised the yarn wasn't suitable for this. So it has taken a lot longer than I had predicted to get to this stage, but I'm really enjoying the whole process anyway. I won't say what it's going to be...let's just say it's a vintage project and leave it at that for now.
Now it's time for me to catch up with my very much neglected house and garden, and also to catch up with you lovely people to see what you've all been up to - can't wait! Ttfn xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
