I haven't been hooking for a while, last night I got back into the groove.

Good afternoon, another bright morning here in the cold north, -5 on the beach this morning, yep the sand was frozen again.  It did look beautiful but a tad chilly.

Last night I got out an old crochet project I started in the autumn last year.  This project will probably take years.
I put it away when I started my poppies and last night I decided to pick it back up.
Are you like me, I love to start a new project, but if it is a long one, I need gaps along the way or the boredom of doing the same thing over and over again sets in.  I can't be the only crafter with lots of unfinished projects?
This is the blanket project I am talking about....yarn at the ready, time to get hooked again!

As I mentioned in a previous post I need 196 of these beauties, phew, it will take some time. Then of course they've all got to be stitched together.  I will get there but I want to enjoy the process, so wee gaps it is then.

I also promised a sneaky peak of the Wedding samples I have been making, now I don't want to spoil the surprise for the happy couple so I am really just giving you a peak.
The day invites...

And the evening...

The colour combination is purple and cream with diamantes.  I just have to tweak them a little bit then I can get on with production.

My wee man improved as the day plodded on yesterday, whilst dosed up on medicine, he had a wee dip in the evening with his first nosebleed, bless him.  This morning he was a little rough but hopefully, dosed up, he'll be back at school again tomorrow.  They do bounce back so much quicker than us adults, don't they?

It only remains for me to wish you all the best this Thursday, stay warm and cosy.  X

Good afternoon Erika,
I am really looking forward to seeing the finished cover.
These wee bits are beautiful.
I did quite a few of my "shawls" for Christmas gifts and have not done any "hooking" since.
Loving the look of the Wedding Stationery ...... Mmmmm!! Looks really elegant.

196 of these wee beauties, that would put me off straight away, so I can understand why having little peals are needed. Glad your wee man is feeling a little bit better, you are right that do bounce back quicker than us.

Love the Sneek peek of your wedding stationery. Hazel x

Hi Erika...I've not crocheted for ages, I used to do loads! Love your little hexagons...I'd have to stitch as I went otherwise it wouldn't get done, I hate sewing!
I have a loft full of unfinished projects....embroidery, tapestry, cross stitch and probably some knitting too! So you're not alone. Carol x
