I'm back. Finally. It's been a long time I know. I got a little bogged down in the run up to Christmas and was busy making. Then after New Year I've found it hard to get back to it. The blogging flow had well and truly come to a grinding halt. So, with Bella Bee at her dad's this weekend, I've had to simply force myself to sit with my laptop and type.
We had a lovely Christmas and New Year. Very quiet and slow. My mum came and stayed for a few days which I always love. Her presence is always missed once she's gone back home. I also celebrated a birthday in between Christmas and New Year. I don't really like the timing of my birthday and have often thought about copying the Queen and having a 2nd, unofficial birthday/party in June when it can be celebrated properly. It's never happened yet, but maybe this year.
I tried to make as many presents as I could this year. However, in our family we have an extraordinary amount of birthdays around the festive period, with 5 (including my own) in the period between Christmas and New Year alone, as well as a few more either side. This coupled with the fact that I am a slow crocheter and knitter, an avid perfectionist with no focus, and I had to alter a couple of the patterns (a very time consuming and lengthy process for me even for the most minor of changes) means I got a little behind. I have almost caught up, with the last birthday present currently on hook. Over the coming week I will be sharing with you all the things I've made over the last few months.
I'm looking forward to this year.
The fragrant hyacinths my mum bought me filling my kitchen with their heady scent.
Peace Out x
