Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww YOU LOT!!!!!!!!!! What are you like?????????????? How Awesome you all are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You just have to be THE BESTest Readers one could ever ever ever hope for, and you've made me feel absolutely bloody great, do you know that?
I've been having a rather Challenging week in case you hadn't guessed. I like to use the word "challenging" cos it sounds more positive and less depressing that many other more graphic words that spring to mind. And I'm all for trying to see the positive. Even at 4am with tired eyes and my ears full of screaming.
I really did feel at a low ebb yesterday, very much in need of a pick-me-up, and you my friends delivered it by the truck load. I can't thank you enough for all the hundreds of votes that you've been posting over at the Olympics. Wow, it's been quite mind blowing watching that little vote-o-meter tick up in my favour at such a rate, knowing that you are all behind me.
Thank you so VERY much. With all my heart.
And talking of hearts, I worked the above little crochet heart just before Christmas, developing the pattern from a similar one I stumbled across on t'internet. Doing my usual thing and simplifying the design, ironing out the niggles and complications which always seem to be present in so many patterns. I was reeeeeeeeeeeally hoping to write a little tutorial for this heart in time for Valentines day, but a certain Little Someone is preventing me from having enough time. But as soon as I'm able, I'll try and find the little piece of scrap paper with the pattern scribbled on it and do some hooking and photographing for you. Its a super little pattern, worked in three quick rounds...I'm going to be (trying) to make some up myself in the next few days to string around the place as I do like to decorate a little for Valentines day.
So....I'm not sure what else to say really.
I think, dear blogreaders, that you know perfectly well how thankful I am for your regular visits to the Attic, for your kindness and support and enthusiasm.
And I also know how thankful you are to me for inviting you into the Attic in the first place, cos you sure do like to let me know!
So that's an awful lot of Thankfulness eh?
Maybe we'll leave it at that.
Heartfelt thanks all round.
ps I know, I know, the photo of Little B's fingers is completely and utterly unnecessary isn't it, but what the heck, I'm sharing it anyways, just because. You know. It's heartfelt.
