In It Again.....

 

 
 
I feel like I've been neglecting you.....
 
 
 
 
You see.....I'm in IT again........
 
 
 
 
 
I'm in The Crochet Bubble.......
 

 

 
 
Lost in the Loveliness, the Colour, the Happiness.....
 
 
 
Meet my Happy Blanket, named because........it makes me happy!
 
 
 
 
Today I'm hoping to complete 24 squares, sew in the ends, then sew them together.
 
 
 
 
Then another 48 are needed....phew!
 
 
 
I don't mind, it's making me HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
 
 
I've started collecting Yarn (on the left) for my Winter Blanket, Rowan All Seasons Cotton! Pattern yet to be decided......
 
 
 
 
Yep, Very Happy!
 
 
 
Other news....the tent is up, in the garden.....yes I know, cheats camping! We didn't book a camping trip this year as I was feeling a bit 'delicate' and not sure I was up to the physicality of camping!
 
 
But we love our camping, so up in the garden it's gone and several sleepovers have been planned, the first was last night! I'm a bit blurry eyed this morning!
 
Mums and Daughters planned for later in the week....think wine might be involved, just to aid sleep you understand!!!
 
 
I tried to get up to date with your blogs last night, think I've caught up, I've not been able to comment on all of them but I've read about all the great things you've been up too!
 
My Etsy is still not restocked, this week is busy, in a lovely sort of way, so this may not happen now until the new term starts!
 
 
Bye for now.....just going back into the Bubble!

Bubbles are Lovely! :) xxx

  2. You couldn't be more in it.

    I wish I could be in the same bubble.
    Unfortunately so many things to do, so little time.

    I adore your plaid, the colours are exceptionnaly well matched and the whole of it gives a happy feeling indeed.

    I SO would like to make something like it one day.
    Can I find the pattern of the squares somewhere on your blog?

    Have fun in the bubble!

  5. Bubbles are lovely, I've been in an OCD stitchy mood for a few days now and have to remind myself I have kids and mustn't ignore them! Good luck with all that crochet you've set yourself to do today. I find that's the only problem with working on something you just love, you get all itchy to get it finished and see what it looks like even though you're enjoying the process of making it too. Daft isn't it.

  10. The happy blanket is gorgeous Ada!! What a satisfying feeling getting all those tiny squares stitched together :) And that cushion cover sneaking into the photos is so pretty. Enjoy your mother-daughter sleepover-camp-thingy-WITH-wine!! Wendy x

  11. You are going wild with that blanket - it looks soooooo beautiful! And the main reason is that it is made with happiness and love in every stitch! Chrissie x PS when I first saw the tent photo, before reading about your camping, I honestly thought you had gone over the edge and erected a tent in your garden for a literal Crochet Bubble! Tee hee!

  24. Your always amaze me how quickly your crochet grows. It looks fantastic. Hope your camping is a success later in the week. There are lots of advantages of camping in the garden. Did you see they have been encouraging us to do that this year to discover what animals share how gardens with us. Did you discover any night visitors?

  27. crochet is coming along so well and so quickly too. Sewing the ends in is a tedious task. Happy camping, lets hope the rain keeps off as it is so noisy on a tent

  28. That's funny,,,my husband accused me a few days ago of being "in my own World" too much and not enough in The Real World (I forgot to take library books back yet again, the fines are now sky high)...I told him I love it too much in my own little bubble and that it's not my fault as it's genetic (I am frightfully similar to my very wonderful but very dippy paternal granny).
    Your crochet is sublime, I LOVE how your blanket is turning out.
    I am missing working on a blanket, but am mentally going through some plans to start one after Yarndale...still undecided on pattern and yarn, but that's part the fun!

    1. Oh I forget everything Lucy! Not sure if its my age or that I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing! But it's my time and it makes me switch off which is just what I need! I've got a few ideas in mind for my winter blanket but need lots more yarn so need to keep saving!
      I think a tent sounds great, memory making for Little Man....we made tents out of wooden clothes horse and blankets, most of our summers were spent in them! :) x

  29. Meant to say.....when I was a child, I used to do garden campouts with my brother in a little two man tent, it was sooooo much fun. Sweet memories. We are thinking about putting a small tent next to our caravan so that Little Man can bring a couple friends to camp out with.

  34. Oh Ada, love that you have been going nuts with your crochet hook. I have been picking mine up now and then and find it so calming amidst a world of chaos. Have been too busy to pop over and comment but did love your post on your girls weekend. You and your girls deserve such a lovely treat and so pleased that you have such supportive friends, that post made me teary with regards to the social challenges we face every day. mel x

  38. What lovely colours chosen! but I really like the pinks, blues and mauves of the cushion best. My husband used to camp in the garden with our son, he said it was always the worst nights sleep he'd ever had.

  39. Such a lovely way to describe what I call a crochet crush! The joy of being in the crochet bubble is wonderful! I love your new blanket, it is beautiful, Ada :) I like the idea of camping in the garden, that would suit me too!

  42. Love your bubbles - are they easy to crochet? they are so pretty but I'm new to crochet so they would have to be idiot proof.
