Calming Crochet

Recently I have been crossing items off my to do list only to find I add three more!
It is when things get so busy that I find myself grateful for crochet. I try to set time aside each evening, after the children have gone to bed, to pick up my blanket and quietly work a few more stitches. It's gentle rhythmic pattern is soothing and I find I don't have to think to much about it. My fingers follow the same repetitive pattern and my mind wanders to the days events. Quiet reflection.

There are times when I want to be a little more productive (my impatience winning over) and a little brooch is whipped up. Sometimes the satisfaction of starting and finishing something in one go is needed.

And then I can happily go back to adding another row to the blanket.

Hope you are all having a lovely week.

PS. Have visited many of of your blogs last weekend but could only leave comments on a few. I don't know what I have done to offend Mr.Blogspot but he didn't want to accommodate my requests this weekend. Hoping to pop and see you all next weekend when I will hopefully have a bit more luck with the commenting!


  1. The blanket is looking good! And I love that brooch tree - looks so pretty and scrumptious!!

  2. Your blanket is coming along beautifully, and those brooches look fab! x

  3. Brooches look Fabulous, know what you mean about starting and finishing something in one go :) x

  4. I absolutely love ripple blankies - just finished one myself and I just adore it. Your brooches are wonderful - especially displayed on the 'tree' stand :)

  5. Blanket is fab. And I am in love with the purple brooch on the left and the green one :-)

  6. The brooches are so pretty. I know what you mean about crochet being calming, I think so too. The problem could be when you log into Blogger. Make sure the "keep me signed in" box is NOT ticked, for some reason, this prevents you from commenting. It's been going on for months and I don't think they're planning on fixing it!

  7. Lovely blanket and sweet brooches.
    I love having a project on the go that's easily completed in front of the Telly!
    I'm making little headwarmers at the mo and they are so easy and therapeutic to make!
    Have a great weekend.
    PS Giveaway at mine if you fancy it. X

  8. Hi Becky, sorry I haven't had a chance to visit your blog over the past week or so - too many things to fit into 24 hours! Your moments of 'quiet reflection' as you patiently stitch your way through that lovely blanket sound like a perfect ending to busy days. Liz x

  9. That has got to be the best way to display your brooches! :) Looks awesome.

  10. Can identify with that! Yes, sometimes you need to see a finished article!
    Blanket is looking lovely, and the brooches are so pretty!
    Blogger has been very temperamental of late
