When I first learnt to crochet, all I was really interested in was making a simple classic granny square blankets, just like the one my mum had made for me as a child. I loved it, not only it’s softness and comfort but the bright rainbow colours that lifted spirits. I wanted to recreate those … Continue reading Moonstone
It’s been a bittersweet month. The holiday blues took hold, the stresses of life came crashing back after a week of feeling free, freedom of the mind and freedom of the body.
