Crochet in Isolation - Heaven

23 March 2020

Hi, I hope you are all well. 

I expected to get a lot more crocheting done during these times due to shops & cafes being closed, but I find myself running IT support for my Daughter who is 15 & doing her GCSEs, my son who is 18 & doing college work & finally my husband who is working from home. 

Now my husbands hours have been cut so he's planning on tidying up the garden & decorating the house (something we have been planning for ages & fortunately have the supplies already).

I have a blanket (or 2) planned, & I am also making crochet jewellery.

I am trying to keep my projects varied & I will be loading them onto etsy shortly.

Keep well & do what you love.

Crochet in Isolation

27th March 2020

Hi again

It's the end of week 1 with everyone home & my crochet targets have gone to pot. The blanket I'm working on (see photo) is going a bit slower than I had hoped, My target was 12 squares a day but I'm getting 4-6 a day done.

I need to crochet 144 squares, 48 of each colour and I had estimated 12 squares a day plus a few days to join them together and then edge it.

At this rate I'll still be making it at Christmas.

I had to cover food tech with my daughter this afternoon, so while she was making tear & share bread I made some cookies. Then my son started shouting at the laptop because he couldn't load Word.

So having fixed that issue, I thought I would update my blog.

But all in all my husband is quite relaxed, the garden is tidy and everyone is now chilled.

Welcome to my website. 

Keep safe and well.

I am crocheting like mad I will load my latest work onto etsy soon, keep checking
