A new lease of craft

As I have mentioned, and any of you out there married / getting married will know, this planning-a-wedding-deal devours a lot of your time. It also acts like a rabid zombie and eats your brains while sapping all your creativity for items that are not wedding related, i.e. craft-hagging and blogging. And as horrid as this sounds, I’m at the stage where I’m looking forward to the far side of our wedding. Meaning, I can’t wait to get back to normal and plan normal stuff. In a good way.

Moving on {well, just a little I’m afraid}, after jumping from one honeymoon adventure idea to another, we have finally come to our ideal honeymoon destination. Without giving away too much, it was our first choice, but were briefly side-tracked by shinier options. The good news is our honeymoon has me daydreaming about crocheting and knitting a couple of new and unusual delights. So here’s to a burst of inspiration and hopeful blogging of knitted and crocheted items of all sorts!

Then, with impeccable timing, THIS arrived for me yesterday …

… I nearly shit a kitten when I saw the post man with it. How wonderful is this Cath Kidstonknitting bag‘? Pure craft win. Even the packaging was adora-balls. I’m really excited since I’m going on a road trip this weekend and I can’t wait to exit apartment with said knitting bag on arm and craft my brains out in the back seat with my newest project. Happy crafting everyone 🙂

    yes I remember those hazy days and the best bit was calling Mike husband, not partner nor fiance but husband lol. Hey will you tkae his last name? I went all hypenated on mine cos J Lee sounded wrong where as J Langdon-Lee sounded so much moree posher. BTW that's not why I went hyphenated but it makes a great story.

    Anyhooooo loving your bag, so glad you got it and have fun knittin in the back seat of ya road trip.
