Long time no post

Hi all.
No blog from me since November. 4 Months! That's crazy!
Work has been frantic. The school I work in has just had an Ofsted. We don't officially hear for a couple more weeks on the result but fingers crossed it'll be OK.
I've been crocheting steadily but not getting very far. I still haven't completed the Realta or the yarn eater blankets. In fact, I haven't even picked them up. Instead I've been making photo props for a photographer friend of mine. I've made a mermaids outfit, sailors hats, nappy (diaper) covers and hairbands with exchangeable flowers. 
I started another blanket made from granny squares in 3 different sizes. It also has 2 x 2 squares as well. It's probably a little over baby blanket size at the moment so I may give it away to a colleague who's 5 months pregnant at the moment

Over the Christmas holidays I finally got round to sorting out my craft room. A trip to Ikea later and it was complete. I hasten to say it doesn't look quite as neat as this now....

I was very excited today as my Mothers day present arrived today. I know I shouldn't have opened it but N. got it delivered to the school and I couldn't resist. She told me to place an order on Wool Warehouse. It's free delivery on orders over £25 so I got some more stylecraft (2 more balls coming in a different package) and a pack of Clover hooks. They are plastic and have nicely coloured handles. I'll let you know how I get on with them later as I'm not actually allowed to use them until Sunday.

Will I be strong enough to resist?


  1. How lovely to see you back Sue!
    What a busy life you have, no wonder you haven't had time for blogging! I certainly didn't have time to craft or blog when I was teaching!
    I can't think of a better Mothers Day present than all that yarn, and the crochet hooks look like they'll be lovely and comfy to use!
    Happy Hooking!!

  2. Hi Sue! It was nice to see a comment from you on my blog. Love your shelves to keep your yarn stash. It is too pretty to tuck it away until it is being used. :-)
