Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, as part of her Spring Blog Hop, *Wisher*, over at Pretty little things in a box held a giveaway. And I’m massively chuffed to have won one of the prizes! So, I now have some lovely post to look forward to. 🙂 Isn’t looking forward to post (other than bills, obviously!) such wonderful fun? 🙂  The timing couldn’t’ve been better either- it’s been a very hectic couple of weeks at Uni, and I was getting very worn down, but now I’m raring to go again.

When the post arrives, I’ll be sure to share all of the lovely goodies with you all. 🙂

So, I managed to finish April’s block, and even got some of the border done, before going back to pokemon for a bit!

Digital StillCameraI’m using a couple of variegated threads for the border, rather than the specified DMC. I think they’re really cool 🙂

Digital StillCameraAnd, of course, I have to have a pair of socks going on! This pair is destined to be as matchy-matchy as a pair of socks can be, short of actually using a plain colour! So, naturally, they have to be done two-at-a-time. It’s been a while since I’ve done a pair like this, it really does feel like they’re going quicker!

Digital StillCameraBut, now it is May, and I just realised I have about 4 weeks to finish my dad’s birthday presents… I need to finish a pair of mittens, and design and stitch a birthday card. This is going to be fun! At least after next week, my workload at Uni will reduce lots!

  1. I think April is my favourite block you have done so far, although you make it difficult to choose with how lovely they all are! 🙂
