An Award

I had this last week from Emma but, as usual, I am running around trying to do 50 things at once so I didn't get to post it.

So, a bit belated, but "Diolch Emma"

The rules for accepting the award are:
1. Place the logo within your blog or post
2. Pass the award on to 12 bloggers
3. Link the nominees within the post
4. Let the nominees know they have received the award by commenting on their blog
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received the award

So here are my twelve nominees.

Buckinghams Palace - Truly Scrumptious - - Stamping Ground - Debs Cards - Vrons Blog - Scrap Happens Here - Juliet K - Debs Craft Blog - Happy Mum - Secret Corridor - A Crafting Journey

Enjoy Everybody!

And now down to business. I have been crocheting up a storm. I have been re-vamping the puppet patterns and, since having my cast off 4 weeks ago, I have almost done 5 of them. As there are 3 puppets in each pattern, that means I have crocheted 14 puppets. No, my maths isn't wrong - I did say almost.

I took some photos last weekend of some of them. I am not entirely happy with the photos, I will try again next weekend. I have to wait until the weekend as I need my son to model. However, having just checked the calendar, I might be able to do some tomorrow as he doesn't have an afters chool club and I should be finishing normal time.

I am quite pleased with myself and am more or less back to crocheting normally. The first couple of weeks my wrist ached rather a lot and Mark was telling me off for crocheting too much. However, I found the crocheting actually helped and, if I cam home from work with it aching, the gentle movement soothed a bit.

Also, I was told this by a AnnieAnna on Craft Forum

"Seriously - enjoy that crocheting. Did you know knitting, crocheting and handsewing is hypnotic. You put yourself into a sort of trance and your seratonin levels go up and you go dopely happy."

What other excuse could I possibly need?
