Good Evening dear reader, may I ask you a question? Does making make you happy? Making makes me happy. So much so that I have quite a few things on the go here at Start-A-Project-Central. There’s a bit of knitting :
It’s a scarf and it’s a bit longer than this now but I have yet to reach the half way mark and I’ve stalled rather. Mid-project ennui. C’est la vie. There’s no point in forcing these things, it’s supposed to be enjoyable?
There’s a strong urge to pick up a hook and fashion some more woolly eggs. I really want some more woolly eggs.
I’d also like to start a granny square blanket and maybe some socks. I know that I am really serious about the blanket because I’ve done a test square and ordered crochet hooks in the two sizes up from the one I used for the swatch.
Lovely as all these yarny things are, what has really been making my heart sing is this:
A trouser pocket. From yet another pair of Simplicity 3850.
Try as I might I could not work out why the blue bed sheet and the scrap of Liberty Strawberry Thief in fuchsia and lime was making me smile so. That was until today when I was gazing longingly at my neighbour’s cherry tree beginning to blossom against the backdrop of a crisp blue sky: These colours remind me of spring! And spring with its lengthening days and its buds and its blossom makes me happy. So happy that I had to capture the moment to share with you, wobbling precariously at the top of the climbing frame I took these:
If you’ve just had the other equinox, here’s something to remind you of the pleasures of that season too:
Whatever the weather and whatever the season where you are I hope that you are well. And happily crafting. Px.

Bravo – you have captured my feelings completely. Cherry blossom against a blue sky – I actually see this when I come out of my basement flat and cross the road. It is so cheerful and beautiful. You trouser pocket is something I would love. Time to start thinking about casting off the woolies, the bulky jackets, the thick tights and boots and shedding the dark, dirty colours. Oh yes…
Lovely! And yes, making makes me happy, too. I am currently fighting the urge to start a quilt I’ll have no time to make!
Oh goodness, I too have a quilt plan!
You’re so talented, Penny! I’m very impressed 🙂
Ah, thanks! Things don’t always work out but it’s fun trying!
