I have been slow on the blogging front lately…… so many wips but so little time! The usual story I suppose with us crafters.  Since I opened my Etsy shop, I have been busy there too, trying to keep it up to date and all those listings and tags aahhh!

So this post really is just to pop in and say hello, yes I am still here a little catch up if you will.  So here’s a few pictures of work I have been doing lately ….

I was asked by Toni from TL Yarn Crafts to test a pattern for her, she has lovely patterns and her Mega Pom beanie hat pattern is one of my favorites.  Here’s a link to her Etsy shop. This is  a crochet scarf pattern using the moss stitch.  Here’s my take on her pattern.  She is hoping to release this soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

I did a few custom embroidery hoops, I really had to lock myself away and concentrate on these but I was pretty pleased with the outcome.  I even managed to feed the kids in between!

I won some lovely goodies from another blogger buddy, Emma from Emma’s Crafty Projects.  These arrived this week, all the way from Australia.  The yarn is gorgeous, I have never used something like this before, so saving it for a special project.  my crafty win

The kids fought over the little plushie (that’s why its not in the picture, I wasn’t allowed !) they are now requesting more to be made.  Hmm I will admit, amigurumi I find is fiddly and takes me forever!  She also gave me some embroidery threads and a lovely cross stitch book marker.  So thank you once again Emma!

The Easter holidays are here, I was trying to do some Easter crafts but its not happening.  My computer is being upgraded hopefully next week, so I hope to get more organised with everything.  Normally I am good with organizing stuff but lately I have been all over the place!  I have also been wondering about upgrading the blog, taking the plunge and going self hosting, therefore have more control over the layout.  I am in the middle of working out a new logo/branding, so bare with me.

I did a big tidy up on my boards over on Pinterest, you can find me here and please leave your pinterest name in the comments section below and I will follow back, I need to find more people to follow.  Speaking of social media, anyone on Twitter or Facebook even ? I confess I am not a fan of Facebook but I have been wondering lately if I should start a page over there. What do you think ?

And finally, I am working on an up cycling project, I just need the weather to behave so I can take a decent picture! so hopefully my next post will be that.

Till next time!

Maura
