It’s been a while…

Hello everyone 🙂

I didn’t realise, but it’s been over a month since I’ve visit. My only excuse is that life has just got in the way. I’m sure you understand how that can happen! Also, I will admit, I’ve kind of lost my blogging mojo a little. Life has just been a little “blah”, and I guess that’s reflected in my blogging too.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t been crocheting though. Oh, there has been crochet alright! Do you like orange? I used to like orange, before I signed up to yarn bomb a whole tree in orange. I better keep details of the project under wraps for another few weeks – just until I’m sure it can be announced. I will say though, that “my tree” is 2 metres tall by 55cm wide, and the brief is orange motifs – all orange.

Luckily I chose some quite nice yarn – it’s Patons Cotton – not too expensive, but easy to work with. For the flowers and some of the middles I’ve used different (orange!) shades of Sirdar Baby Bamboo. This yarn is just scrumptious. Once I get back to post-yarn-bombing-reality, I’d love to make something else with this, it’s so nice to work with.

In other news, a few weeks ago I signed up for an online blogging course with Pip Lincolne. I’m rather fond of all-things-Pip-Lincolne – not in an icky stalkerish way or anything though, of course not. We’re only into week two, but I’ve learned so much already. In the coming weeks, fingers crossed you will see some improvements here. If I’m clever enough, I may even work out how to make a Pinterest button, so you can follow us over at Moo’s Pinterest page.

Well, I hope you’re all well, and not too busy. Melbourne is not coming to the party with much nice spring weather yet, but we remain (unrealistically) optimistic. Now, I’m going to put my jacket and beanie on and take Moo for a little pre-dinner walk.

Love Terri and Moo xxx

PS Today I got a bit of sad news from my Dad’s wife. Their dog Flute passed away yesterday. We lost my Dad six years ago, before Moo came into our lives. I never quite understood how much Dad loved Flute until I met our Moo. Flute was a gorgeous golden labrador, and she lived to 14 and a half years old. I hope we have our Moo for that long – she has been getting lots of extra hugs today.
