I'm still struggling to shake off the last of the illness that's had me knocked out since the middle of December. It's definitely a case of one step forward two steps back. One day I feel like the light is at the end of the tunnel the next I wake up feeling lacklustre and full of germs again. I'm looking forward to the day I wake up feeling well again and can get this year started.
In the meantime there's not much I can do but continue to get from one end of the day to the other and potter and create in the small windows each day when I have the energy for it.
As I haven't blogged regularly in an age I thought I'd catch you up with the things I'm actively working on right now. Knitting and crochet seem to have taken over my crafting time for the last 6 months or so, largely due to the fact that most of my other crafting things are packed away in storage. My poor old sewing machine hasn't seen the light of day for almost 2 years if you can believe it....I'm looking forward to a time when I have some room to have it set up again but until then......
I'm crocheting a large blanket which was started as part of Lucy's Cosy CAL over at Attic 24. Thanks to this bug that I picked up I've fallen so far behind most others have finished. I decided to go with my own limited colour palette rather than following Lucy's colour scheme and I've made my blanket wider, it should hopefully cover a double bed more or less. Take a look at my project page on Ravelry if you're interested in details about colours I'm using
