Looking Back On 2015

Hey lovelies I hope you are all keeping well! As you can see I am no longer the avid blogger that I once used to be, but I thought now would be a good time to look back and tell you what has been going on in my life in 2015.

Last time I posted to you I was getting excited about my wedding, and here I am six months happily married! Time goes in so quick!! Our wedding day was one of the best days of my life and one I will always cherish!

We were counting the days to our honeymoon which we decided to plan weeks after we got married, to give us time to settle a bit after the wedding...During this we found out some unexpected news.... 

We got pregnant! We are hopefully expecting a healthy baby girl in April 2016! So we spent our honeymoon knowing that we were going to be parents, it was a wonderful relaxing holiday and my very first time abroad. 

These are all the exciting things that have happened since I last blogged, what a year huh? 

Now it wouldn't be a proper review of my 2015 if I didnt show you all of my finished projects, and there are so many! I love crochet so much! Here they are for the whole year! 

All the blankets.... 

Starting to make baby things....

And lastly, my cushions!

I would say 2015 has been a very fulfilling year! I hope yours was the same. 

Take care,

Weekend WIP Along With A Little Ramble

Hello lovelies, I hope you are all doing well! I have been doing pretty great, although before I ramble on I would like to share my current WIPs with you. 

First up is my Diamond Striped Blanket which has been on my hook since December 2013, its been a steady project to pick up whenever I didn't have another project on my hook. Yesterday I decided to lay it on my bed to see how big it was and I was surprised to see it hasn't got far to go until I finish it. I also planned to crochet more of it yesterday but as you can see I took this photo before Jess decided she was going to have a cat nap on it.

The second project on my hook is a fairly new one using the Willow Square from 200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afghans by Jan Eaton. I have only done the first 5 rounds of the pattern in one colour rather than changing colours, then I have used the Solid Willow Crochet Block pattern found at Annie's Place to give it the solid border. I tried the block with a cream border but it didn't make the colour pop as much as the grey yarn does. It is going to be a blanket, but I am not sure how big it will be....time will tell.

Aside from crochet I haven't really been updating you with much else in my life, there definitely have been a lot of changes which has possibly contributed to my lack of blogging. I am going to go back to last year.....yes I really have been poor with my blog updates! However I can keep it brief!

August last year I applied for a job with Coca-Cola Enterprises, with the attitude of....'yeah right like I would get a job with them'. Well turns out I got an interview with them which happened during a nightshift week at my previous job (zombie Hazel indeed). A month later I got a phone call with a job offer, I was absolutely ecstatic that day. I have been there 8 months as a QA Microbiologist!

After I started my new job, Andy and I found out about a house that a friend of the family was wanting to let out. It needed redecorated which we got to do as our Landlord lives in England, so they gave us the first month rent free at the cost of us buying paint, etc for the house and of course decorating it for them (I will never forget all those layers of wallpaper we had to strip!). Though you can tell I got to pick the colours he he.

My last update is the most exciting one, and some of you already know this I have mentioned it almost a year ago. I have been looking forward to June 2015 for ages, because in 3 weeks time on 26th June, Andy and I will be getting married. I am both excited and nervous, and it is really starting to sink in now, but we are almost all organised! Squeeee.

I think that's enough updates for today!

With this post I am linking in with Weekend WIP Along over at A Little House in the Corner, so if you have a WIP you can share with her this should pop over!

Take care,

Shaking The Dust Off

*rustling tumbleweed*

Hello to anyone that is still around, it's been a little while (total understatement). Those of you that follow me on Instagram will know that as my life has been going on outside of my blog....I have still been crocheting!

I finally finished this before my friend's Halloween wedding, and she was such a beautiful bride. I was so proud of this project and received many compliments on the evening when she wore it.

I have been mostly in the blanket zone as you can see.....I have made two baby shawls, finished my 2014 mood blanket, and finished my big colourful granny square blanket.

I still have some WIPs in my basket which I can leave for another blog, as I would like to start blogging occasionally now that my life seems to have calmed down a bit.

I hope you have all been well!

Take care,

Hazel x
