Busy Doing Other Things

Yes, I'm busy doing other things - I'm not crocheting!

I thought I should make an effort with the Easter decorations so I prettied up some twigs.

We don't do much these days to celebrate Easter but it's nice to add a little colour about the place.  When the girls were little, the house would be full of knitted bunnies and  knitted Easter eggs.  I still have the bunnies but I haven't brought them out this year.  Grace is coming home for the weekend, so we'll all be together, I love it.

I've also been busy not crocheting but sewing.  I made another work-in-progress bag for my knitting.

I used the lovely Alice in Wonderland fabric I bought in Sheffield market last month.

This bag will be used for my April socks which I plan to cast on later today.

The new square patterns for the Block-a-month CAL will be released today, so I can't wait to get stuck into them.

So plenty to keep me busy.  But no matter how hard I tried I couldn't NOT crochet, and here is my Sophie's Universe blanket up to part 7 which I completed this morning.

Look at those amazing roses.

I have such admiration for Dedri Uys, the designer of this pattern, she is so gifted.

And this central flower is going to bloom in part 8, which I may just feel compelled to work on this afternoon!

So I have a busy day planned, and despite my good intentions, crochet is high on the list!


  1. What a talented designer, the blanket is a real delight and just gets better and better, stunning. Easter blessings.

  2. Love your twig tree so pretty. Your crochet is fantastic.
