So February... My daughter Rowan's birthday is tomorrow and she is reminding us every couple of hours how many days there are to go. She's so excited to be seven. I'm looking forward to it, because maybe afterwards, when her excitement level drops, she'll stop waking up even earlier than normal! Oh I'm looking forward to my children being teenagers and having to tip them out of bed instead of them ambushing me at the crack of (pre) dawn! I imagine the novelty will wear off pretty quickly though.
Another female force of nature, Storm Ciara has taken a break now, apparently its Storm Dennis going to arrive in a couple of days, there are several strategically placed buckets and I'm keeping my fingers crossed the porch roof doesn't blow off. I hope it hasn't affected any of you too badly. Scary stuff. The wind has woken me up a few times, which probably hasn't helped the lack of desire to get out of bed! I was always an early bird, right the way through school and university if I had work to do I was much better getting up early to do it than staying up late. But getting out of bed has become harder since having children, maybe being halfway to 70 (thanks son for that phrasing!) isn't helping either.
At the moment I'm working on a collection made with a gorgeous set of yarn from Felt Fusion (photo above), and some work to send to The Whispering Wild for her new studio, do go and check out Lucy's magical whimsical work, it really is stunning.
I'm also making progress on my own 60cm doily hoop pattern. It’s something I've been working on here and there for ages, but I might finally be getting somewhere... if you want to be the first to know more sign up for my newsletter.
