The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:

Despite my recent absence from the blogging world (and a lot of social media sites as well), I have been quite busy. In fact, being busy is why I haven’t been around lately!
I haven’t been very good at the whole blogging thing lately, but I promise I will be back to blogging on a regular basis soon. I will be writing a catch-up post this afternoon and will be revealing some of my plans for the coming months. Stay tuned!
I have just read the very sad news that Wink took her own life last Friday. Wink has been a huge inspiration to me. It was after reading about her in Kathryn Vercillo’s Book “Crochet Saved My Life” that I sought diagnosis for Asperger Syndrome. She always seemed so happy and jolly online, always into new crochet projects, and this inspired me to get more involved with crochet-alongs.
Wink (Marinke Slump) will be very sadly missed by everyone, but I feel a huge gap in my life already, and not just as a fellow Aspie crochet nut.
Goodbye Wink. I guess in the end crochet just wasn’t enough for you.
We had bad weather here last Wednesday so I couldn’t take a photo of week two’s motif, and then I forgot about it until today when I took photos of week three’s motif. Sorry about that
Sorry for my recent absence; I have not been able to crochet since around February because of the tenosynovitis in my thumbs. I had steroid injections into both tendons a few weeks ago and now I’m able to crochet again – hooray! Continue reading
As you know, I have been making a lot of Christmas gifts this year. Most of these have been from basic or beginner patterns because they are quicker, but some have been intermediate patterns. While I have been sat here today, I have started to think about more advanced crochet patterns and techniques, and the lack of magazines for this area. I subscribe to the two main crochet magazines available in the UK; Inside Crochet and Simply Crochet, and while I would consider the former to be the more advanced of the two, it does seem to focus more on intermediate rather than advanced patterns.
