Patchwork April

Hello........ Once again I'm running behind with my round up post, I've just been struggling with my energy levels so much.

April was a bitter sweet month here at the Summerhouse, lots of birthday celebrations and spending time with friends and family, I'm still working away on my seaside pebble blanket and I made my first ever booties (quickly followed by a second pair)  Other than that I've not made very much, I'm just trying to rest up and get this relapse to ease a little.

It's so lovely out in the garden though, I do love this time of year.

We're still very much missing chief crafting assistant Merlin about the place, he was such a big character always into mischief and the craft supplies.

As for May well I'm trying to resist  the urge to start another blanket, I've been toying with the idea since 2013 so that's not so bad on the will power front!!!!  I'd just love to make a Summer Flower Granny Blanket in sweet pea hues.  I know I shouldn't I already have two others on the go, but I think it's the call of Summer and so the far the Summerhouse itself is without it's very own blanket. Reason tells me that I'm really not well enough at the moment to take on such a big project, but I've come down with a serious case of the wanties.

My cause is not helped by all the glorious Bluebells, Sweet peas and Bluebells in a blanket, what's not to love. More on my trip to the Bluebells another day.

Happy Crafting

  3. Your photos are really nice. I especially love your collage of Merlin! I hope you're feeling more like yourself soon, take care.

  4. It is wonderful to see that you achieve so much. I hope that you can decide to your own satisfaction about the blanket! I understand the blanket wanties! xx

  5. You love making blankets and you do such a great job with them I say give it a go.

  6. You should start the blanket you are dreaming about! Life is too short and too painful to not do what you want, especially if you are able to do it! Go girl! Can't wait to see your start:))

  7. So many lovely things here, Clare. Naturally, I zeroed on that birthday cake, so pretty.
