Slack time.

I can't believe its been nearly a month since my last post, very slack indeed. But things have been really busy, especially in my day job and weekends have been pretty full too. I am also finding I need a bit more rest so when I do get some free I try and put my feet up and relax, when normally this is when I would be making things. Its quite hard to write what is meant to be a creative blog, when you are not doing much creating!

But I have been doing bits and bobs, but mainly as a way of relaxing. I have been busy embroidering some curtains for the babies room, they are not finished yet, but here is a peak and I have just started knitting another blanket.

I am hoping that I will get a bit more time to myself in the next couple of months, as I would really love a big creative session, as I do have several idea's I want to explore and several things I want to make for the house, but we'll see.

Winter knitting

I wouldn't say I am much of a knitter, in fact I have only been able to do it for a few years, but I I do really enjoy it. Especially when its something simple that doesn't require too much concentration. There is also something about winter that makes knitting even more appealing and comforting.

I have just finished making this blanket for the baby, I am really please with it. We don't know what we are having, so it needed to be neutral, but as a fan of bright colours, I didn't want to go down the green, yellow and cream route. So its a bit of the bright side. But I enjoyed making it and think I may even make another one.
