Well, not really, just not had my blogging head on for a bit! Miss me?
So new year, how are we doing so far? Had some great weather these last few days, v cold yet sunny so have been out in the garden, hoping to get ahead for a change. We try to grow some veg, usually failing due to lack of time! Did manage to harvest some lovely squash and potatoes, didn’t do so well with anything else though. Will try harder this year 🙂
As far as crochet is concerned, I have sold quite a few gloves and hats it my local shop, now sold out so should be making more. I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to do next. I do think I need to be concentrating on natural and recycled fibres, which is why I set up my facebook page, Naturally Looped
Trouble is, I question my work a lot and wonder is it really worth the effort and time? I do have an Etsy shop but it takes so long to set up and add items, I have so far been put off. I worry that a buyer won’t be happy with the item and this is stopping me. Maybe I just need to get a grip and give it a go!! Oh, the tortured artist hahaha!!I will work it out…
In other news, we had a rather cultured trip to London where we went to see a play (called The Children, was really good), spent many hours at the Tate Modern and had dinner out at one of Ottolenghi’s restaurants (bit disappointing, great staff and venue, food wasn’t as good as I had hoped, but dont let me put you off). The best bit was meeting up with my fab old college chum who I hadn’t seen for neary 20 years. It was just like we’d met up the week before, loved every minute 🙂 Have to thank my friends for lending their apartment to us, very swish it was too!
We are now ready to adopt another doggie and went to The Dogs Trust today. No luck this time but will keep looking. Having 3 cats does make it a lot more difficult to find a pooch. There is a dog shaped hole in our lives that needs filling! We miss our gorgeous Ella, at the same time we know we can give another dog a good life, so gotta do it.
So, thats a quick round up of what’s been going on dow here in Devon. I have a couple of crochet projects on the go and a few more to start so hope to have some pics soon…
