While we were snuggling.... (randomness)

HAPPY FRIDAY! To celebrate the weekend, and a general return to health, I decided to share some of the things I've been doing this week. (This post reflects the fact I've spent most of the week snuggling poorly kids and browsing the internet on my iPhone to escape the bazillionth re-run of Ben & Holly.)

Every so often I come across a blogger whose style I love so much I get quite excited. This happened last night when I was clicking links from Pinterest.  I can't quite believe that I haven't been following this blog until now as it's exactly to my taste! If you like crochet, nature, beautiful fabrics and lovely photos, you might like to grab a cuppa and put your feet up for the next half hour while you take a browse around Serendipity Patch. I just love Debbie's work, and am looking forward to reading more. 

Since the notice about Knitting and Crochet Blog Week, I have also rediscovered Eskimimi Makes. This is a blog full of fabulous knitting projects which are beautifully photographed and presented with the minimum of fuss. You may like to take a look at these awesome rainbow socks and Eskimimi's other projects as well as her useful tutorials on photographing your work.  I am also wondering if I need to make myself some of these DIY Sock Blockers *grin*

Oh and if you missed the KCBW post, here's the launch info/signup link.

At least a year after installing the App, I have also signed up to Instagram this week - can you tell I have been bored? I haven't posted many photos there yet myself but I have discovered where some of my favourite crafters hang out when they are not blogging!!!!!!!   
I didn't really 'get' this App, but now I'm thinking of it as a kind of visual Twitter (which I love) so I'll give it a go. If you are on Instagram and would like a follow, please add your username to the comments on this post so I can find you. You should be able to find me, my user name is @craftsfromthecwtch.

Last night I also came across another addictive app called Draw Something (the link is to the free version, but there's another ad-free version). You play with someone else to guess each other's drawings from letter tiles, a bit like Pictionary - if you fancy a game, my username is SairlyD!

Well, that's a fair representation of my unproductive week and the lengths I'll go to for entertainment when I can't make something. I'm hoping for better things this weekend. Maybe a little something with this.... 
And some more of this....

    I've got the block book, I've had it for ages and not done a single block out of it. The plan was to work through it and make a quilt from different blocks. You should set up a crochet-along ;)
