Cushion Ta-Dah! And hooky treats

 After some debating and soul searching about the colours I decided to finish my cushion cover, I'm sooo glad I did! Here it is, in all its bright and beautiful glory. Every time I look at it, it makes me smile.
 So from this drab and dreary cushion. . . . .to this Ta-Dah!
 I really truly do love it sooo much it just makes me smile!
 And I saw this sweet little tin of crochet goodness on ebay and just had to have, have, have it!! I can't wait to get hooking. But for now I really must finish a couple of works in progress, more about those later.
So until later!
Bye for now x

Hooky Dilemma

I started this hooky project at the beginning of the summer holidays, only now its nearly finished I'm not so sure I like it.

In case you are wondering its a cushion cover or its going to be a cushion cover and that quite simply is my dilemma! To finish it or not? Consign it to the thrift shop bag or not? Is it simply too bright to take pride of place on the sofa or should I have chosen something more subtle? 

All opinions on this matter are gratefully received xx

We decided to explore in the gorgeous summer sun! We concluded no adventure would be complete without Woody the dog tagging along.

 Hamish found the lily pads fascinating and started talking about frogs. Which got him wondering how they balance on them and whether or not they sink with the weight of the frogs.
I found his conversation charming and giggle worthy. 
 We paused to take in the wildlife and the amazing views.
 I just have to say it turned out to be a blisteringly hot day! So we cut our adventure a little short in order to make a vital ice-cream stop on the way home ;-)

Graduation 2014

                                       Graduation 2014

Well my graduation finally arrived last month after two years of highs and lows, tears and tantrums.
The last two years has been the most amazing journey and some very special friendships have been formed.
 The weather didn't let us down either, it was a glorious sunny evening. By the end of the evening emotions were very mixed, as a group we have shared a big part of our lives and supported each other through so much.
 And now onto the next chapter in my life . . . . . . I can't wait!
