A little about my week

This week has been pretty busy in the nursing home, I am introducing Gardening into the activity timetable and a few weeks ago we sowed so many seeds, and so far we have signs of the spring onion and beetroot growing and our strawberry bushes are blooming, the residents are so excited and so am I, Today we sat in the garden and watered all of the containers and enjoyed the sunshine.

Back to Crochet:
I get alot of questions from people asking me about what crochet hooks I use so here they are: Clover Soft Touch they come in sizes 2.50mm - 6mm and are so wonderful to use, I just love them, I got them as a gift from Danni for my help in her charity Sophies Cozies, it was such a huge treat as in Ireland all that you can get are the ugly grey crochet hooks, and when your working on a long project it is nice to have something comfy and pretty to use :)

This week Morgan ordered me some aluminium crochet hooks from ebay

So I have been buying "The Art of Crochet" magazine weekly, I havent made the blanket yet and I am not sure when I will, It is the only crochet magazine available in Ireland, which is horrid as I love "Crochet Today" and "Inside Crochet" but can hardly get them :(
So today Morgan went to the store and picked me up issue 15, I am looking forward to reading it with a cup of tea.


  1. How exciting about the veg, I love this time of year. :) xxx

  2. I love your blog, too. You make so unbelievable beauty and cute things. I love they all.

    I´m a beginner in crochet, but i love it, it makes me and my broken soul happy.

    I have so many ideas in my head and do not know where I start. He also is missing us unfortunately the money for fine wool for me to crochet. :o(

    Lovely greets


Thank you for the comment - I will always try to answer them here, Have a lovely day xxx
