Almost There.....

Today I found a list......
I really don't remember writing it.
Or is it that I don't want to .

This time last year I made a New Years Resolution List.

1. No crisps. ( I don't think this one was ever going to work!)

2. No magazines, extra to the subscriptions I already have.
( Epic fail! Not only have I taken out a couple of extra subscriptions
but I have also continued to treat myself to others. Definitely have a problem here!)
3. Keep a diary. (Not very impressive....only managed to make it to February)
4. Complete the daily Flylady missions. ( Sometimes)
5. Remember birthdays. ( Does it count if the card is late?)
6. Keep car park change in the car. ( Wow! Something I am doing!!)
7. Sort out my hair. (Went to the hairdressers once.....)
8. Buy Book Club books only. ( Another one that was never going to happen.)
9. See a live band with the kids. ( Does it count if the band isn't famous?)
10. Learn to crochet. ( This is a definite yes! Very proud of my work so far.)

I think a little more effort in terms of specific goals is required next year.

Crochet Love Part 2

My obsession continues.......
I have not stopped.....
I am still managing to impress myself (and my family!)

Who would have thought this time last month
that I would be able to make this blanket?

Only problem....
It's too small!
Good job I'm still hooked on crochet.

Crochet Love

Over the last couple of years I have become obsessed with crochet.

I have spent hours gazing longingly at blogs such as

But I had no idea how to do it or indeed where to start.

So at the end of June I finally did something about it.....

I signed up for a beginners course at Wibbling Wools in Bury St Edmunds.

Wow! What a great time I had.

Jackie, our teacher, had just the right mix of patience and humour.

And guess what ......


When I got home I dug a crochet book
 and taught myself how to make a Granny Square.

I am sooooo totally HOOKED!

Starting Again

I keep wondering why I am so reluctant to write a new post.....
is it because I don't really know how to blog?
am I spending all my computer time gazing longingly at other peoples blogs?
have I forgotten to take new photos?

Well all of the above are excuses I have given myself.

Something I am not short of is time, and I have always got a variety of Works in Progress.
Maybe I fall short as I rarely complete a project!

In the last couple of months I have made one or two promises to myself.
I will complete my WiPs.
I will find out how to do bloggy things.
And on a more personal note, I will loose weight!

My journey starts now.
