Crochet hearts.

I'm a very happy bunny today, I've finally worked out my own heart pattern.
I've been trying to figure out a heart pattern since February, so it could be for valentines day. Just a tiny bit late then!!
I really am very pleased.
Why is taking photos of bunting/garlands so difficult??
They all look a bit blah!

I have also, finished off all the middles for the spring time hexagon blanket. (also late considering the name!)
All the ends are sewn in nicely too!

I would love to be small enough to explore in among the left over tails!

I also forgot to show you a little wreath I made a while ago.

I noticed the other day that I have just passed my first blogoversery!!
One whole year of blogging. WOW!! 
So I'm going to be having my first blog giveaway. I will post all of the information in my next post. 
Till next time

I'm loving.......

All the pretty flowers in my garden.

A spot of morris dancing whilst sat in the evening sunshine.

Getting my hooks out again to practice edges and corners.

And flowers.

My new funky rug.

Finally the view from the back door.

So much time has passed since my last blog post I have found it really hard to start again. Every time I try to write something interrupts! Phone calls, visitors, you know how it is!
Firstly then a little bit of housekeeping. Thank you for all of the comments that have been left, I have tried to answer all questions that have been asked, if I have missed anyone I'm really super sorry, just email me and I'll get to you!!! Also welcome to all the new followers!
So what's been occurring these past weeks? It's quite a list!

Reconciliation. My sister an I hadn't spoken in nearly a year, (no details on that sorry!) so there has been lots of tears, hugs, and a whole heap of gossip to catch up on!!

A car crash. again no details, but everyone is is fine.

Gardening. A huge amount of time has been taken up with gardening. It's looking very pretty, but there's still loads to do.

P&J. They have both been on holiday from work and school, no a chance of blogging whilst they are home!!!

A trip to Cornwall. We drove down to Cornwall to visit Ps parents. It's a very scenic place and the people are nice, but I just don't like it there! I have no idea why. Sorry to any readers who happen to live there, I guess you can't like everywhere!!!

A broken laptop. We're now using the 'big' computer that is normally in Ps workshop. (I call it the shed!)
It's a noisy and slow old beast, but at least it does the job. before it was brought into the house, there were 3 days of no internet YIKES!. I think I'm a little too addicted!!!

 Driving. I have started to take driving lessons after a break of 2 1/2 years. I get so nervous and worked up before each one I can barely breath! I hope that as time passes I calm down. I also passed my theory test. Woo-Hoo!

Finally crochet. I've started a new hexagon blanket. I'm not sure how big it's going to be yet, although size really isn't going to matter too much because it's for decoration instead of snuggling!

That's about it for now, there have been other odds and sods but I'll leave those for another day!
Till next time ( I won't leave it so long promise!)

Hello again!!!

Oh my goodness it has been a long time hasn't it?
Where to start? 
Firstly, thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my last post. I did pop in every now and again to have a peek, time would not allow me to stay long enough to blog.
The last 3 weeks have been busy, as you can well imagine! We had to spend a week going backwards and forwards between houses in order to clean the old one ready for the hand back. All I really wanted to do was unpack and pretty up the new one!
I think it is safe to say that we are settled now though.
I desperately wanted to show you my toilet!! ( when you see you'll understand!)

How cool is that?!

My Craft room is still a work in progress at the moment.
It gets the afternoon sun (not today though, grey and miserable)
I have made a few little bits.
Some new flowers
and the start of a new cushion cover.

The biggest thing I have been doing is gardening. I have weeded my socks off!!
I forgot to take before and after photos, I'll try to remember when I do the front!
These two little green houses contain tons of flowers! I spent hours pricking out seedlings. Fingers crossed they'll all grow big and strong!!
I shall try to get back into a blogging routine. I have noticed this post is a little all over the place! Sorry about that!!
Till next time
