27 February 2011


Whilst we may be in February now (and usually by this point I have given up all hope of keeping my New Years resolutions!) I have been rather successful so far! This year I wished, rather than the usual promise of saving money and, ofcourse, losing weight, to take up a craft or hobby. My gran, therefore, over Christmas, as I'd hoped taught me to knit (and purl, might I add!) And I must say, I am overjoyed at my results...and we're only in the second month of the year!

When deciding on a project, I chose to begin a patchwork quilt! I now have 26 patches...and have decided to measure it at 12 x 14 squares, hoping that this will comfortabley cover a double bed (or wrap me up snug-as-a-bug on the sofa when reading a good book or watching 'An Affair to Remember'!)

Happy New Year!


  1. You've done SO well Laura!! Swap you some knitting tips for crochet ones!x

  2. Hello Laura, thank you for your comment on my blog, so pleased to know that my ramblings and creative endeavors have inspired you! I read that you were from Derbyshire and I thought... "I wonder if she may know my friend Hannah" and lo and behold, I think you do! Just want to say excellent start with the knitting. And I'm a big fan of the colour and tone of your photos, nice and warm and cosy. Fay X
