I keep my blog as a personal record of what I'm up to, which might be seen as working towards "An elegant sufficiency, content, retirement, rural quiet, friendship, books, ease and alternate labour, useful life"

I'm certainly not there yet.  There is quite some way to go!

and home by bedtime


I didn’t quite expect to travel so far today.  We’ve got exciting travel plans on the horizon but today was to be spent at home mostly.  It was only as I settled down in the late afternoon with a crochet hook in hand that I realised how far I’d been.

I began here.  Somewhere in Yorkshire. Aaah.


A couple of hours passed but that lovely crochet scarf/shawl wouldn’t go out of my mind.  I returned to my desk and pinned it to my Pinterest board in the category “I could do this – could I do this?” – because as some will know, I am not the most confident of crocheters.


I returned to Yorkshire and followed the link to France.  An interesting tour followed en francais before l hopped over a few countries to Japan, to find the book. 


Finally, I found myself in the USA, because my linguistic skills do not match my aspirations when it comes to crochet.


The result?




That strategically placed ball of yarn hides all kinds of sins.  But hey, who’s going to be examining it closely?

(you never know ;-) )


48 more flowers to crochet.


Of course, I had to come home via Bristol, to buy yarn, too.

Don't forget I'm here if you need some crochet tutelage :)

I shall look forward to finding the scarf/shawl somewhere in a show!! I like your Pinterest board and see you have read "One Day". I have just read it and thought it very good.

am delighted you're crocheting. I haven't picked up a ball of yarn since Christmas but my fingers are starting to itch.....
