:: during a rare spell of blue sky this week, I went up the road to walk beneath the blossom trees. It was/is glorious. I'll share more pictures of it in a separate post I think, as pink blossom definitely deserves its own moment of glory ::
:: coming through a very tricksy spell of challenging behaviour with our Little B at the moment. Pushing the boundaries and asserting his own quite forceful personality, well I'm sure all you Mums out there remember this stage. Crikey, it's been tough ::
:: drinking strawberry beer and crocheting with friends at the pub, I love Monday nights. I'm working up some double crochet stripes which will eventually become part of a yarnbomb style covering for an old Ikea lamp ::
:: enjoying a quiet soak in a hot bubble bath ::
:: love love loving the origami phase that the Little People are into at the moment. Every morning before breakfast, the table becomes a hotbed of concentrated creasing and folding. Here you can see Little B doing his own version of origami which involves folding combined with copious amounts of sellotape, glue and creative scissor work ::
:: my flopsy tulips have made me smile this week. I do do that pin-through-the-stem thing, and I do keep the water topped right up, but tulips still have such a way of contorting themselves! In the bowl, lots of little balls of leftover Stylecraft which I'm using to make granny bunting for Yarndale. More on the bunting very soon ::
:: love gazing into these amazing blooms, I spend many delightful moments loving my flowers ::
:: iced buns made with Little B. They didn't rise very well for some strange reason (I usually pride myself on my light and fluffy well risen buns), but they still tasted delish ::
Moments from my busy, rather stressy week. Moments of calm, love, happiness, beauty and peace which I have been searching for amongst the chaos of a busy life.
Lots going on here. Lots of strong parenting, seeing my Little People through a week of tests and trying hard to keep Little B on the straight and narrow.
Working at the studio (shelves are up!) as we have now set a date for our first Open Studio event, I'll chat to you about that a bit later in the week.
Working on Yarndale projects which has been really exciting. Starting to make bunting triangles and planning some thrilling yarnbombing for the event. I wrote a blog post for Yarndale with lots of inspiring yarnbomb pics, do go have a look.
And finally, I've been trying to drag number 24 into some sort of order as I have my Dad and Lady B staying in the Attic for a week.
Hoping you are all well and happy, wherever you are and whatever you're up to. I'll be back soon with 1. blossom celebrations (pretty pictures) 2. bunting triangles (a pattern and a request) 3. studio news (I've got shelves!)
See you soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
