Oh my goodness, what awful destructive weather we have been having, my heart, thoughts and prayer go out to those poor people who have been flooded out of their homes and those who have had their electricity cut off. I really hope that the weather starts to improve and that there is hope on the horizon.
A few things have been going on around here this past week or so, I have been beavering away at my simple comforting granny crochet square blanket and adding the grey surrounds and joining up 9 squares at a time. It's strange for me to only have one project on at the time, but it's been that kind of busy at work so far this year and I haven't had very much energy in the evenings and have had to recouperate at the weekends.
I really do enjoy this easy peasy kind of crochet and it's very relaxing when you don't have to think or count or increase/decrease stitches. It's been a perfect winter relaxing woolly kind of project and made me realise that's it's worth hanging in there for the long haul, the process being important rather that the instant gratification I have craved in the past with the end product.
Maybe this is me maturing into my woolly-ness? Enjoying the process rather than rushing to get to the finishing line?
Other than that we have been enjoying the joy of blossoms of the yellow kind, a sunny substitute if you like :o)
I have also started reading my February book for #theyearinbooks and am slowly getting into it. Alice has painted me a pretty bookmark and I am enjoying getting back into the habit of reading and turning pages before bed.
Alice has also been doing some wrapping of presents for one of her good friends who turned 13 on Monday and I was pleased to see that she is adopting some of my pressie wrapping methods.
Last, but not least I have been playing around with all the pretty sea glass pieces we found on the beach in Barcelona and up the coast in Spain last summer, I am hoping to make a little framed display of them and will show you soon.
So there we have it, funny little things that have been happening in my funny old life. How has this week been treating you? Have you been enjoying the process of making anything? I would love to know xox take care everyone and see you soon.
