Hooky Giveaway

Just a little reminder to everyone that my Giveaway is still open for comments. One of the prizes will be a copy of the lovely hooky book ~ Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench. I really love this book and there are lots of lovely hooky projects in it. I'm quite sure that there will also be something Christmassy and something chocolatey thrown in for good measure too!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave me a comment on either this post or my Three years post. I'll leave the Giveaway open until the end of November to give everyone plenty of time to enter. I hope that you all enjoy your weekend and I'll see you all sometime next week :O)x

Three Years

Today it is my 3rd Blogiversary!

That's three whole years of blogging! Three whole years since I first dipped my foot tentatively into the lovely bloggy world! Who would have thought it? I didn't really think that anybody would be that interested in my witterings or my creations either, but there must be a few of you out there as I still have followers and still get left some lovely comments too.

I absolutely love being part of Blogland ~ it is a truly creative and inspirational place. I love that I can take little snippets of my daily life and that it will be there in years to come as a very special record to look back on. I love that there are like minded souls out there who like to talk about yarn and hooky stuff ~ although I have to admit that my husband thinks it's all a little bit mad! But that's men for you!

To celebrate this special day, there is of course cake in the form of some yummy cupcakes ~ made yesterday with the help of two smallish volunteers. Funnily enough they never volunteer to help with the washing up afterwards though!

Finally ~ to say a very big THANK YOU to all you lovely people who take time of out of your day to read my blog I am going to have a little Giveaway. I'm not quite sure yet what this Giveaway will be ~ and I'm not promising that it will be something handmade by me, but it will definitely be something nice and possibly hooky related. There may even be something chocolatey thrown in too!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to leave me a comment on this post ~ I'll leave it open until the end of November so that it gives you all plenty time to be included.

I'm off now to put the kettle on and have myself some cake and tea ~ see you all very soon :O)xx

Blue Stripes

This week I am absolutely loving my new Blue Stripey wellies from Joules. They have Green and Blue Stripes with a jaunty little orange stripe up the back of the boot and the very delightful name of Water Fall ~ my all time favourite Watery colours.

Just right for late Autumny walks through the lovely crisp, scrunchy leaves and more than likely for stamping through puddles and trudging through snow later on in the year! This year I am determined to be prepared for the wet and wintery weather when it arrives.

Loving my Blue Stripey socks too! Just right for feet that need to stay warm and dry inside the Blue Stripey Wellies out in the cold and also for sitting cosily on the settee with a cup of tea and some hooky stripes.

Also loving my Blue Granny Stripes ~ although progress has not been as quick as I would have liked and these particular Granny Stripes are at the stage of looking very scarf like at the moment! And although a scarf would come in very handy right now, these stripes are destined to be a snuggly Blue Stripey Granny blanket just right for keeping warm and cosy on a wintery evening.

I'm off now to try and hook up a few more Blue Stripes ~ Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you all very soon :O)xx
