Leaning Tower of Squares

Hello and thank you for all your lovely comments, I really feel like I'm getting to know and make new friends, thank you :)

It's a funny week as our beautiful daughter has gone away with her school for a week. She left Monday morning and will back at the end of the school day on Friday. It's an adventure week full of exciting activities. She didn't get much sleep on Sunday night as her little tummy was churned up with anticipation, excitement and a bit of nervous anxiety! We did have a lovely cuddle in bed on Monday morning and to make it different for her and a bit special, Andrew brought her breakfast in our bed... oh I miss her, she seems to be growing up so fast.

I think she looks so sweet and can't wait to have her safely home again telling us all about it, it feels odd at night time when we go to bed, not to be checking her and giving her extra kisses :)


Do you remember the green squares I was crocheting? I've finally finished crocheting around them all in cream and I'm about to start crocheting them together... thus the leaning tower of squares...




My bag is full,



so I feel I have to finish them before I can start something else... oh I am good.... OK, I may have actually started something else too... I'm not sure how I feel about it though so will finish it off before I post some pics :)

Take care

  2. I remember the first time my daughter went on a residential school trip. I think it was the longest week of my life!

  3. I bet you're counting down the days until Friday, it was the same here when my two went away with school. I missed them so much so I know exactly how you're feeling. Looking forward to seeing the squares all crocheted together, and also your new project.

  4. I echo the above sentiments - it's hard to let them go although you know you must. It all makes the coming home more special.

  8. It is hard when our children go away on trips isn't it. My oldest daughter has got her own place now and I found it very hard when she left. I've still got two at home though.
    Your daughter will be having a great time and she will be home before you know it.
    Your crochet squares are looking lovely - what are you going to do with them I wonder. :)

  9. I remember those first trips away, I think they're far harder on the Mum's and Dad's than the children. I bet she had a ball :)

  13. Wow all those squares! To make a blanket I assume? It will be fantastic! I feel for you with your daughter away. The house can feel so empty. But she'll be back soon enough with all her news. Maggie xx
