Hibernation

Winter hibernating...

 You can find the pattern for the slouch hat on the
Lions Brand website...EDIT:Pattern called
Charming Chapeau...
But you will have to sign up to get this pattern...
But it is lovely...

Hibernating in my Winter Wooliness...

Hinako shoes...
 An early birthday present...

New shoes

I love these...
They are so comfy and soft
and even better!!!
they were on sale...

***
I have been a tad obsessed with THE BLOCK...
and I adore Sophie and Dales kids room...
 I really want that wallpaper!!!

so
I decided that I could no longer
have a peaceful night sleep with the 70's fake timber laminate wall colour...

So a bit of inside make-overing...
with my trusty paint brush...

Bedroom makeover

Now that's better...

Well nearly...
I still would have loved that wallpaper..

***
I hope my hibernation doesn't last too much longer but
at least I have a few crochet granny blankets to keep me cozy
in the mean time...

Lovely wall redo. Glad you are nesting and hibernating. I think we all need to do that from time to time to recharge.
Best wishes,
Meredith

I like the hat and wrap, but I'll admit it - I love the shoes!! The style and the color and want a pair of my very own!
Enjoy the clean bright walls - hibernation will be over in no time!

The Lion Brand website has some pretty great patterns. Sometimes it's nice to browse and get ideas. That slouchy hat is love, by the way.

Even though its Summer here in the UK, it's so cold and wet I feel like winter hibernating too. Love the hat and cowl and those shoes are just so cute I've got a bad case of 'wanties' now. Eileen xx

I just stumbled onto your site and it's lovely! Did you make the socks too? If so what pattern?

I stumbled across your blog. I'm loving it! Can't wait to share it with my girls when they wake up! They are teens and love to knit and crochet things.

I have to ask though, what kind/brand of shoes are those!? They are so cute and comfy looking. Sorry if you've answered this elsewhere, I haven't found that info so far.

I love the photos. You look so refreshingly happy. The pictures make me smile and have giving me a positive boost to start my day off. Thank you!! Much needed.
