a New starting point

One may ask ; how does it come about that you have a blog, but then you don't blog for more than a year ???  Only answer I have, ....Life happened...... and a lot of it !!!!
As Sarah Ban Breathnach quoted Zora Neale Hurston;  "There are years that ask questions and years that answer."

So there's no point in trying to explain it, therefore I decided to just show you some of the crochet goodies I made (yes there were still a lot of crocheting, just no blogging). So through the course of time at the end of a post I'll show you what I've made 2012 / 2013.

A bit more on Sarah... A few weeks ago a friend of mine "introduced" me to the writer Sarah Ban Breathnach.  And then it so happened that yesterday while visiting another friend of mine guess who was sitting on her shelf...yes Sarah.  So of I went with her copy of  "Simple Abundance. A Daybook of Comfort & Joy" (unfortunately I cannot find a ISBN number in the book, but it's the 1995 edition and I had a look on the internet, you can still find the book, it's still in print if you are interested.  There's a few other titles available as well)

Mmmm my kind of words for the new year ; "abundance", comfort", "joy", "simple".  Coming back to basics, slowing down. 

So regarding the little chats that I'll have this year, I'm thinking Crocheting (would there be any question about that!!!!) , life and all things nice... and maybe a bit of Sarah's wise words if I may...

As promised, something woolie (is that even a word!!!! but all wool lovers now the meaning!!)

This lovely square is called "Waterlily" and is made out of Jan Eaton's book "200 Crochet blocks for blankets, throws, and afghans"
I made a few blocks, alternating the colours and the end product was a cushion cover (which I'll show you at a later state)

Keeping "simple" in mind, this is enough for one day and as Sarah quotes  Joe E. Lewis ......"You only live once - but if you work it right, once is enough"
