When we went to Crewe

We saw little Miss Phoebe, of course, and she is even more teeny tiny and perfect in person!

The jumper I made will probably not fit for a loooooong time, but it was always meant to be for when she’s older so that’s okay. I also took a lot of baby books down because I will always be the Aunty who gives books for any and all special occasions.

Speaking of special occasions, during one of the short breaks we squeezed in between visiting everyone I’ve ever met, The Boyfriend proposed and got upgraded to The Fiancé!

He was mean and started off sounding like he was going to break up with me, so when it took a turn and he got the ring out I didn’t quite believe him!  Obviously I got over the shock and said yes, and now I just need to get used to saying “my fiancé” when I talk about him. It’s a transition.

We’re going to sort out somewhere to live first because I’m so tired of renting (and having upstairs neighbours) so don’t be expecting too much wedding-planner chat just yet. All that will come later 😀  In the meantime – on to house hunting!

Happy birthday to me (2019 edition)

It’s my birthday today and as a present to myself I have started the Changing Tides Blanket CAL hosted by Eleonora at Coastal Crochet.

The first part was released just yesterday so it’s definitely not too late to join in.

Nobody got me yarn for my birthday (!!!), and I’m still trying not to buy too much new stuff, so I’m going with whatever colours I have in my stash. I learned my lesson after the Lego blanket and I’ve made sure that all the yarn I’m using is the same thickness. From now on the pencil test is my best friend!

I’m determined this will be the CAL I actually keep up with (looking at you, Havana.) and I reckon it’s a good sign that I’ve actually started it on time.

Here are some goodies other people got me for my birthday:

Unicorn biscuit

Chocolate books

Real books

Mum and Dad also got me a ticket to a Toft workshop to make my very own Morag the higland coo amigurumi! We searched and searched for a kit, but couldn’t get hold of one for love nor money so when Mum found this workshop she jumped on it. It’s not til May though so there’s a bit of a wait before I get my Morag. I can be patient…

What’s everyone else up to this weekend? Let me know in the comments!
