Back to Normal Service being Resumed

Well normal for us anyway, ha. All the decorations are down and packed away (except for one string of lights that look so lovely I'm keeping them up for now). Crochet projects underway with notepads getting full with lots of lovely new and exciting ideas.



We've been playing our new board game too. We all love it


Ticket to Ride


We all like board games and it's lovely that Imogen is able to play some 'older' age group games now.



Little Alfie must have been dreaming about crochet...



I haven't neglected my hooky and finished sewing up this cute owl this afternoon.



He is so lovely, from 'Crocheted Wild Animals' by Vanessa Mooncie


I changed a couple of things and used some yummy, bright yarn



I'm thrilled with him.




The dogs seem happy to see everything back to normal again... chilling out...



Do you see Penny has had a hair cut, hard to tell in these pictures, but she does look a cutie.



Take care

  8. Lovely photos of the dogs and your little owl is fabulous. You are very clever. It's nice to get back to normal isn't it? My decorations are all down, I just need to put them away now! And I'm trying to get back to normal eating. I've eaten far too much and don't feel good for it. I'll tell my sister about the game as she's a board game nut! Xx
