One foot in February

So, here we are firmly in February, having waved goodbye to January and I for one, was sad to see it go.  Life rushes by all too quickly and January seems to have been no exception.  All I seem to hear lately are people bemoaning what they call a long, bleak month.  Yes, it's cold.  Yes, it's dark, Yes, it's a little bit of a come down after the joy of Christmas but the days are drawing out now and the promise of Spring is most definitely in the air.  The first daffodils are peeping up from the ground and for me, January always bring with it the excitement of things to come in this brand spanking new year.  

I have been a very busy little papercutter in the last few weeks with some sweet commissions and some new things for the shop including pretty papercut bunting.


I'm not sure if I've mentioned my love of crochet here before but I've recently learnt to ripple (using the wonderful pattern from Attic24) I locked myself in a quiet room for all the necessary counting at the beginning and that dastardly long foundation chain (255!) but once I was on the second row, I relaxed into it and am now totally hooked!  It's going to be double bed sized as I'd like it to act as a bedspread on colder nights.  I'm just using up a lot of odds and ends of Stylecraft DK yarn and trying to be as random as my OCD orderly brain will let me!  
Here it is so far.... 


A bit of a way to go.... 
Enjoy your Sunday poppets!
