Lunar New Year & New starts

With the passing of Lent and the Lunar New Year, the emphasis for me has definitely on new routines and fresh beginnings.

I have been squirreled away most of the year however I am spending a lot of time reading peoples blogs and on social media which may have been too much of a substitute for real life interaction however sometimes we all need that hibernation time


For now though it is obviously time to start stretching and planning things.
One of the twitter peeps @atanae posted a link which got me thinking :

Since then I have been flitting between the 2-5 range which means at least my blogs are seeing a bit of a refresh.

So after some google+ inspiration and in the spirit of 'learn a new thing' I thought I would share my first messy attempt at some crochet stitches.

 Myinspiration - Yvonne Mabbott who has been creating a 365 day blanket and the update pictures are so lovely and colourful.

Crochet - Beginner stitch

Crochet - Single crochet

First attempt

Unravelled and 2nd attempt

I am glad to see my friend and fellow blogger is already embracing the 'New start' idea too so I am looking forward to hearing her new findings from a new course. Here is the link if you want to check it out too

Now as for my own goals for the month, I need to squeeze in a visit or 2 to some art galleries for an essay and would like to time to catch up on some craft bits.

Theme challenges that are incoming are:

Love - Any media

Love magic -Clay

Although if I want to get them included i had better get my skates on!
