Episode 1

Well hello my lovely people! It’s great to be back on this page once again. I hope you weren’t hit with the January blues as much as I was. Apparently it’s blue blood moon this month. So you may get to see another full moon this month. Personally, I’m not a star gazer but certainly do look up to the skies when I walk out of the takeaway at night when I finish and heading home.

Anyways, before I ramble on I’ll swiftly move onto a little catch up shall we before all the good bits of this crafty blog.

Catch up

Since the last blog, I’ve had a fairly steady month. It’s not been particularly great nor bad. My emotions gets influenced quite easily especially from hubby. When he gets stressed out something, it’s hard to tell but when his bubble totally explodes I get smacked in the face with it. I guess that is how I’m feeling at the moment. Its the kind of stress that won’t go away until the whole matter has been properly dealt with and out of the way. Where is it coming from? This isn’t something I’d want to share about on the inter webs however, it’s only fair that you know where I am at with regards to the dark tunnel that I’ve been talking about in the previous entries. Certainly not where I want to focus all my energy on at the moment so enough of this dull behaviour from me.

I’ll be going to Baa! The new wool shop that will be opening this coming weekend in Stonehaven, which is a good 40-50 minutes drive from where I live. I am in the main city but right across the other side and into the real suburban area of it. I’m excited to see this new venture starting up that is almost close to home. The other reason is, I’ll get to have a proper chat with Eva, the director of

Perth Festival of Yarn. You can find her on instagram and facebook as Perth Festival of Yarn. [www.facebook.com/perthfestivalofyarn]

I’ve also visited Yarn Studio, which is in Inverurie, slightly closer to home but still a good 30 minutes drive for me. Yarn Studio, was formerly known as The Colour Corner. At the same time I had a quick coffee morning with Clare of Cookston Crafts. You can find her most active on instagram as Cookston Crafts, she does lovely hand dyed yarn and she also runs workshops from her home. I feel that it’s great to be able to meet up with others who are like minded when it comes to crafting as we both agree, none of our friends would share the same passion as us or understand why we like doing certain things e.g. why would we knit socks? Purely it’s just not the same as shop bought.

Enough of what I’ve been up to. There is a lot more that I could talk about but this is a blog, not a podcasst so your not having to spend an hour reading this. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate you spending a little bit of time reading this and thank you for sticking with me to this far even before getting to the good parts.

Of course, you have the choice to just skim read the blog or post as you would have th choice to skip ahead when it’s a podcast episode on YouTube.

Needles

I have several items on the needles at the moment. I have 4 new projects started since the new year. I now have 3 wips from 2017.

The 4 new ones are, Soirée and Anniversaire which are both garments from
