What I’m doing at the beginning of 2013

As it’s the beginning of the year I thought’ I’d give a quick overview of everything that I am up to at the moment, including crafts that I am doing and books that I am reading!

I’ll start off with crafts!

On my needles…


As you might remember, at the end of 2012 I started learning to knit. Unfortunately, with lots of hand made Christmas presents to be made my first project had to be put on hold. Now though, I am storming though the knitted headband that I am making and I hope to have it finished by the end of this week!

On my hoop…


Embroidery hoop that is! This is the Bothy Threads Vintage kit that I have been after for ages! My brother got me it for my birthday! I am thoroughly enjoying doing it and I can’t wait to progress further.

On my hook:

Sadly I’m not crocheting anything at the minute…it makes a change I know! However, I am eager to attempt this little Ravelry project so I think this might be what I go for next!



My first craft project of the year:



Yesterday I reblogged The Little Room of Rachell’s lovely post and I just couldn’t resist making one of these for myself! It will be great for keeping my 22 before 22 sticks in when I have completed them and I will be putting the little bits of paper in like the original post said, ready to open on New Year’s Eve 2013!

So here is what I will be reading first in 2013:



Yesterday I finished reading John Le Carre’s ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’ so today I’m starting ‘Twelfth Night’ by William Shakespeare for university.

    Your crafty projects are looking wonderful. That little crochet dancer is lovely and I will enjoy watching you create this one when you get it started. I still think the jar idea is awesome and have to find my jar and get it started.
