It is coming... there are clues if you look hard enough for them.
Everywhere you look, nature is slowly getting ready...

Good things come to those who wait...

Bring Me Sunshine!

I have been completely fed up with the rain. Persistent and endless, it has been so heavy our roof has sprung two leaks. Thank goodness the sun came out over the weekend.

We were becoming stir crazy and every attempt over Christmas to get some fresh air had been rained off! I should have been glad for the excuse to cosy up and get some hooky, felting or spinning time but we seem to be having such a long wet season that I'm left yearning for some dry and warmer weather.
So yesterday we donned our wellies and headed off to Portreath beach, just a 10 minute drive from home. The sun was shining and we filled our lungs with fresh air as we raced across the beach.


Unusual stones were found and waves were paddled in.

We blew away the cobwebs and recharged our batteries!

I hope you all got to enjoy some fine weather this weekend too.
Did anyone have any snow?

New Crochet Magazine

Have you seen the new magazine Simply Crochet?

It is produced by the same people who make Mollie Makes and Simply knitting. I received an email in November to say I could subscribe to the first 3 months for £5 so I thought I would give it a go!

It is full of crochet patterns, ideas and advice and is produced in the same colourful and familiar way that Mollie Makes readers are used to.

There are a range of patterns: clothes, both dinky and full sized, accessories, jewellery, furnishings and a toy dragon!

I suppose it has left me wondering whether it is really offering me anything more than I could already find for free on your lovely blogs, but I have 2 more to go before I need to decide whether to continue a subscription.

Have you seen it yet? What do you think?

PS I am using my new Xmas pressie to do this - after agreeing to not buying each other too much for Xmas my husband surprised me with an ipad mini! I'm struggling with the blogger app a little and have no idea if the photos are where I want them to be in this post so I hope it's ok!
PSS Sorry, all pics at the end and apparently nothing I can do about it! How annoying!
