Half Term Insomnia

Well, half term holiday is over, the Usual Routine can resume… it’s been awesome sharing extra snuggles with the little people and being able to glide around at a slower, calmer, more mindful pace, taking a breath and enjoying the memories as they happen.

But then the little people get tired and need to sleep (booooooo) and there’s nobody around to play with till Mr. Mumbler gets home after a long shift.  So I have choices, I can kill time on social media (a little is great but too much is a bad bad bad thing :p) orrrr I can bingewatch yet another 15 season long gory something on netflix whilst crocheting…

I’ll post a little about each of these later today or tomorrow (my brain isn’t really doing words this morning after a stressful start to the day) but I wanted to share with you the photo’s of some lovely new designs i’ve been working on.  As ever, they will be available as beautiful handmade items in the colour(s) of your choice, or for the hooky types amongst you, the patterns will be along soon over the next few weeks! Cool, huh?

rosa mia collageSuch a girly pink set for me… those of you who have followed me for a while know that pink is my least favourite colour to play with… but when i saw the colours of this yarn i just couldn’t resist turning it into something warm for a pretty little princess.

miami stripesWhy Miami? I BLAME NETFLIX! I went and got myself addicted to “Dexter”, a very gruesome crime series (you have been warned: not for the faint hearted or queasy, it’s incredibly graphic)…set in Miami, the questionably pastelmess of the protagonists shirts definitely set off my need to fuse together these colours in what turned out to be one of my favourite baby blanket designs! This gorgeous set is available to purchase here, or as always feel free to place a custom order to request a bespoke set for your bundle of joy!
