Christmas crochet


Made a few gifts for Christmas, coasters instead of bottles of wine for people (I hope they forgive me for that). Reusable face scrubbies which I adore a simple pattern and the printable for the little box comes with the pattern which is by the fabulous Chummy Mummy the pattern was great value, I went with the beauty bundle highly recommend it.

The star blanket has gone to its new home with a colleague who has just finished for maternity leave expecting a little boy. I made it with paintbox chunky yarn I was impressed with the quality of the yarn it was the first time I’d used that brand.

The gorgeous women’s institute yarn from Hobbycraft is on my wish list for the new year thinking a waffle blanket with grey border fingers crossed it stays on the 3 for 2 offer until payday !! It comes in the 400g size as well 🙂 !

Its fab being able to do handmade gifts I think they are well appreciated and worth the time and hard work.


There was something I’d been wanting to do for quite some time but didn’t have the confidence, courage or self-esteem, in August I finally plucked up the courage to sign up as a volunteer with Girlguiding, I started in September and I’m currently attending fortnightly to help out I’ve chosen my owl name as Sooty Owl, it’s a special name to me as it was my first pets name (the best cat in the world). It will provide me with lots of opportunities whilst getting to help the girls. Already looking forward to some adventures for 2019.


Couple of the girls gave me a small present when we finished for Christmas this week it made me feel very emotional.

Lesson I’ve Learnt already, is to get stuck in and involved even if it’s something your nervous or scared to do, my only regret is not doing it sooner.
