Goodbye March

Is it really heading towards the end of March? It all feels like it's been rather busy for me and doesn't seem to be getting any easier and I don't think I will be blogging as much as I would like to in the coming weeks as we are hoping and praying that we might be able to sell our wee house for another lovely home we have found. I will try and pop in as much as I can, but work has become more manic and there just never seems to be enough hours in the day does there? Hey oh, the sun is shining here on the south east Coast and I am loving hanging my washing out and airing the house with fresh sun kissed breezes.

Here are some of my Instagram pics from March to show you a little of what I have been up to...

I am doing a little crochet a granny square workshop at the end of April and so have been rolling lots of little balls of different coloured balls of yarn and making sample granny squares to show and explain the process

We have been taking advantage of the Spring sunshine and having tea beside the sea

Playing with pretty pastel buttons

Sipping pink lemonade for a sore throat and tidying up the house to have photos taken by the estate agent

Finishing off my March read for #theyearinbooks whilst drink love mugs of tea


Treating myself to a pretty ceramic birdy necklace and beginning to crochet a jute bag which is rather stiff and ouch fingers to make, but hopefully worth it in the end :o)


Doing a fun swap organised by Jo and swapping with Hannapat, it was so delightful to get happy snail mail with Easter chocolates, little CK soaps and not one, but two handmade pins from Hannapat. Thank you so much it really was a delight to come home to see the package waiting for me.

Last, but not least my funny little needle felted Easter hen I made last Saturday which was great fun and I will show you more in my next post, together with some chopping up of fabrics and enjoying the beauty of crochet doilies


I do hope you are enjoying the warmth and energy the sun is giving us at the moment and thank you always for popping in

Happy Days!

  1. I know just what you mean - I keep popping by and reading blogs, but am so busy at work that there isn't enough time to sit down and post my own thoughts! Oh well - shouldn't complain - it pays the bills.
    Good luck selling your house - a little sunshine always helps. It's shining here too - and is glorious.
    Have a great weekend. x
