Bad blogger!


Very bad blogger, I've just looked and I didn't post at all in April... so firstly, hello, I'm still here and kicking.
Part of the reason I haven't been blogging is I haven't been cross stitching, and I don't like to post crochet too much because I mostly do blankets, and I'm aware that once you've seen a couple of stripes you've seen them all... however, I finished my first blanket this week,which is a present for my Grandad. It also survived the washing machine, which I'm incredibly releived about. Having been working on this on and off for about six months I think I would have cried if it hadn't.

I have other projects to work on so hopefully I'll be able to post some more updates and try to remember to post once a week again, it's mostly crochet, but there are a few things that aren't blankets, and there is a cross stitch project in my future... I'm definitely missing my own projects at the moment, but I reckon it's going to be a few months before I'm able to get back to that... although my reward is to completely blow off my 2016 plans and allow some new starts once I've got everything I need to done.
The other reason for not posting is I did go on holiday for a week (I got sunburnt in Wales, I'm still amazed by that), and we've been manic at work, having had a few people off sick, so I've been working longer hours and coming home knackered!
Anyway, he's my pretty colourful blankets, and hopefully I'll get back to posting more recently.

Congrats on your first blanket finish and, although I miss your stitch updates, I know not everyone can stitch 24/7! We'll be here whenever you get back to stitching!

Stress at work does wear you out! I know I want to just sit in front of the TV on days like that.

Lovely blanket!!
