A new blog.

Hey there and welcome to my new blog Foxs Lane.

So why the new blog?

I guess I just feel like there's more to say than I can say in The Daylesford Organics blog.

The farm is a huge part of who I am but I also have my family, my husband and my three girls, and my craft.

My craft is hard to define as it changes all the time.

My main love and inspiration is textiles, but I'll really give almost anythig a go. Anything except ceramics as the feel of dry clay on my hands makes me cringe.

At the moment my main love is crochet.

I am very new to this form of stitching. I think I started about two months ago when quite a severe addiction to soduko and spider solitaire threatened to take over my life. I'd been interested in crochet for a while and then finally took the plunge by checking out some videos on youtube.
And that was all it took. I adore it and am now hooking away at every spare moment I get.

It's perfect for sitting besides the girls in the bath, at school assembly or in front of the fire at night.

Having always been a sewing machine person, I love how portable crochet is. And that I don't have to sit at my desk with my back to the rest of the house.

I am getting rather frustrated at the different terminologies used in US and UK patterns and find myself unpicking a lot of dc's that are meant to be sc's and vica versa.

So far I have almost finished a granny square rug and many, many flowers but I feel the need to make something really practical soon. Something like a beanie or a vest I think.

I am inspired by the whole crafty blog world would love to be a part of it.

I'd love to be able to write the type of blog that inspires me. Colourful, interesting and full of pictures of my latest projects and obsessions.

It will also be great to keep a record of my projects and thoughts.

So there's my first post.

Let's hope that it's the first of many and that it inspires me (and possibly you) to create more.



Oh and I know that this post is full of photos of things I have sewn rather than crocheted, but I promise you many, many photos of crochet projects in the near future.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
