Year of Projects Update - Half Term

First up, I finished my fish!!  I was learning to crochet for the Ravellenic games - he isn't perfect but will do and I have learned lots of new stitches (if that is the right term!?)

 I also collected my latest acquisition from the post office yesterday - a sweater quantity of Gilliatt yarn from De rerum natura.  It came in less than a week from France and was delightfully packaged with some lavender (so it smells devine) and with some samples of the other colours.  That means when I have finished my top for work (see below) I can co see you there.
And here is the progress on my top for work - I have done a little more now and with it being half term (hurrah!), I may have finished this by next week.

So since it is half term, I'm hoping to get lots of crafting in.  Last week I was asked about the recipe I used for the coffee cake, so I blogged about it here.  I was also asked about the pattern for the purse, so I blogged about that here.

We don't have too many plans for this week, probably some crafting, a trip to a local farm and a playdate!!
Hope you all have a great week!


  1. Your fish looks so cute and I can't wait to see "see you there" Your work top is coming on and I hope you get lots of crafting time in with mid term this week. We have one off all week as he's in Secondary school now and the others are only off the latter part of the week, so I've a few more days to wait

  2. That fish is your first crochet project?! Woman, you got skills! ;-) And that fish is really cute too! I'm off to check out your purse pattern and the coffee cake recipe! Have a lovely half term!

  3. Great job on your first amigurumi! He is cute and will be well-loved. What a nice pop of color for your top. You must take a pic in it when you're done. Glad you have some time off. Enjoy.

  4. Super cute fish! It looks quite perfect to me :)
