Hooking progress report......

Hi folks and how are you all?
Sorry I've not been about, lots to do in the real world!
The kitchen is slowly taking shape but that was always going to be the case with us working around everything else too.
My parents rang yesterday and are coming to visit today so mad panic....#housework frenzy!  LOL.  I haven't really got on top of things since the kids went back to school but needs must.  It's amazing how much you get done when on a time schedule!
I've still got the boys rooms to do and my craft room (the less said about that room the better!) plus a mound of ironing, I guess that's going to be today's jobs sorted.  That being said I shall then have my jobs done and be able to enjoy the time with my parents, and the icing on the cake...work rang and have told me to take this weekend off!  Yippee!
Surely I will manage to get some crafty time in?!
Maybe if I can tidy my craft room so I can get in it...my mojo might kick in to action and I can have some fun.
Talking of fun have you been checking out all the information on CHA in the states.....oh my, there are some lovely new goodies that are going to be hitting the crafty streets later this year.  I'm thinking I might do a round up of some of my favourites....things that will definitely be on my wish list.  Watch this space!

On to today and the photo I am sharing is more of a work in progress...remember my lovely new chairs?
And my granny squares?
With Christmas I had to put my own crocheting to one side so it has been lovely of late to sit in front of the fire late at night and plod on with this project.

I am making two cushions and this will be the fronts, on the back I am going to be doing something different....to give me a choice of sides.  They're slowly coming on, don't you think?
Slowly but surely.

Anyway I best be getting on with things here....will catch up with you all again soon.  Take care and happy crafting.  x

I agree with the less time you have to do housework the more you get on with it, I think this weather doesn't help I think as you can't open windows and doors to freshen up the house while you run round picking up and hoovering . And think of a messy craft room is a happy one. Your squares for your cushions are looking good.
Enjoy having your weekend off.

The squares for your cushion really tone in beautifully, another project nearly ticked off. A neat craft room means no work getting done, mine is like a tip but I know where everything is. Housework is a chore get a cleaning lady in LOL.
