The mumma and dadda in our house have had fevers and aches and tummy pains so far this week. We are on the mend (hence blogging now!) but are still not 100%. The kids seem to have escaped, thank goodness, though them having normal energy levels has been quite trying! But they are lovely.
So in these situations, when you cant even turn to chocolate or coffee for comfort, my visual nature finds rest and inspiration in some internet bloggy goodness.
Lucy at attic24 has a beautiful blog, and such a beautiful way of writing and bringing us all into the life of her little family. Her crafty goodness is totally inspiring, and her love and joy in her family shines through every post. Do check her out :)
In new yarny goodness, a yarn-dyeing goddess on a cloth nappy forum I frequent has just started a new yarny business Red Riding Hood Yarns and they are amazing! If I wasn't on a self-imposed try-and-knit-what-i-already-have yarn buying ban, I would have at least three of the colourways on their way across the ditch from New Zealand :)
And a friend from the same forum, Sheryl from Shortly Stitches has been inspiring me with her photos of her spring garden blooming, and her scrummy new hat knitting pattern Benji (scroll down her blog to see the post 'Benji at the beach') which is available for purchase here on Ravelry. Have a look, you know you want to :)
