Catching Up

Goodness me, it's been a while since I last popped on here. No excuse really it certainly wasn't  intentional.....just life I guess. I have been busy craftwise though making and creating but just never found the time or the urge to blog really. I think part of the reason is because I discovered vlogs and podcasts over the summer and frankly became hooked. I found I could listen/ watch and still do my knitting or stitching at the same time. It just became easier to tune in and create than to write my own blog. Although I enjoy the vlogs and podcasts that I watch I have no intention of joining them. I think they are very brave but not for me. So my wee blog is long overdue an update. (eeek! I've just noticed I last updated in April)

Right what have I been up to......
It seems so long ago now but Marmaduke is finished.

I think I will just pop some pictures on here to show what I've been doing.
Sorry they may seem a bit random. I've become hooked on sock knitting any info about these socks can be found on my Ravelry page just click on projects to see the others.

Some other knitting projects.

A crochet pot to hold my crochet hooks which I manage to keep loosing.
Stitching hasn't been forgotten.
This is a little teacup pouch. 

A couple of long overdue birth samplers.

Some new projects to start and some I've finished but not got photographed yet.
To be honest Iam not sure how often I will be posting now as this post has taken over two hours to get to this point. Blogger doesn't make posting easy. I think it may be time to look at other social media platforms I don't know maybe instagram? Never used it but I do like the idea of not spending hours trying to post a few words and pictures.  If anyone has read this and has any suggestions I'd be most receptive.

Well I am glad to get caught up with you Ali. I do not do FB or IG. I am glad you got a post on my friend. ;)

So nice to see a new post from you, Ali. And you have been very busy over the summer and autumn. These socks are gorgeous, I wish I knew how to knit socks. But even if I knew it it wouldn't help because it would be difficult to find the time for knitting. All your other knitted projects are wonderful, too.
Great to see Marmaduke finished. And these birth samplers are so sweet.A great idea to use these Snowblower Diaries designs for them. Great stitching projects ahead!

I'm only on blogger but have often heard that crafters people change over to Instagram. They say it's easier to handle. But I will stay with my blog as long as there are still stitchers who are willing to read it :)
