Has it truly been two weeks since the last blog entry? That's what happens when life gets hectic (and when one loses an entire week to being crook) but I managed to get so much done regardless!
The highlight of the fortnight was a girls' night out staying in (I promise it will make sense eventually) with coffee, crochet and good friends including the vivacious Michelle from Crochet Between Worlds.

WIP Project Bag
A knitted look done with crochet!
This fortnight has seen more outings than usual–a combination of social events, errands and medical appointments–leaving little time for sitting at the computer and blogging. Naturally, with so much going on, there are lots of things to blog about!
The photographs have now been taken and the stories have been drafted in my mind but I have been either too busy or too tired or ill to put them together. Isn't that typical?
I bet when I have all the time in the world to type away, my brain will be blank and the words will have run away from me! That would be my luck!
So this is another post with a preview of the stories I am working on, including my lovely meeting with Michelle, so keep watch for posts in the near future about:
|Scarves in progress|
- surrounding myself with scarves;
- step-by-step photos as I complete the WIP Project Bag and turn it into a backpack;
|A pile of poppies|
- poppies, poppies and more poppies! A batch of beautiful blooms is complete and I have been busy with the finishing touches. Blocking is the key to making your projects look good. I have been taking photographs so I can share the methods that I use to get the best results;
- a new pattern. In the process of making so many poppies, I came up with my own design for a little poppy pin and will share the instructions.
It is taking me a while to get the posts together because, between all of these fun activities, I have been ill with autoimmune problems.
There's nothing like a week of fatigue fog to set back one's activities, and force a game of 'catch-up'. Fortunately my energy has returned so I hope it will last long enough to actually publish all those posts and maybe even 'catch up'!
Perhaps the drafts composing in my mind were also 'drafty' (draughty) enough to blow the fatigue fog right away! I wish it were that simple.
Signing off now to get back to those photos.
What a busy fortnight it has been!
How busy has your fortnight been?
