Peaceful Week

This week has been peg people, climbing, crochet, puzzles, stories, crafts, glitter, flowers, rainbows and tie-dye. This week has been breathing in peace and breathing out joy.This week has seen spring cleaning, gardening, and glorious sunshine. It has brought our first ladybirds of the season, our first harvests of salad, the first peekings up of calendula, and the beginnings of the end of our last-years medicines harvest!This week has involved jam. This week has had a fair bit of birthday crafting in it. There is always room (and time) for one more present. Rowan has been showing an interest in the girls' dolls, so I made her very own - I named it Poppy, once I'd crocheted the crazy hair to go with the gorgeous fabric I chose just for her on the market.This week has been full of blessings - desperately needed shoes and food shopping, and the bill that had caused our internet to be cut off, all paid for by friends without us ever having told them of our needs. Oh, and wool again (Ashleigh you are such a love)!This week has been remembrance and the lighting of candles. A sweet mama and her family have been in our hearts very much.This week has been full of things that look oddly like school, as well. Jenna has been writing away busily most days, and drawing endless *beautiful* pictures with the Waldorf Lyra pencils. There has been child-sized birthday crafting also - Jenna has finished her embroidery and declared that I must make it up into a blanket for Rowan's dolly. And then she crocheted a bracelet too, for good measure. We spent a busy day at the library and museum, looking at animals, making rockets and bug houses and bookmarks and pictures. And life for the girls has been, well, full and happy.This week has been fun!


  1. What a wonderfully creative week. And do i spot another dress you have crocheted Morgan. I think our next outing will DEFINATELY have to involve a crochet hook and some wool!

  2. So glad you're back on line, I was getting a tad worried!! Did you crochet that glorious jacket/coat that Jenna was wearing? It was awesome and Rowan's doll is super cute!
    Glad you've had a lovely week
    Love and God Bless
    San and all xxxx

  3. Oops, it wasn't Jenna it was Morgan, doh!!
    Hugs San xx

  4. Lovely to see you back again xx

  5. That sounds like a wonderful week. Glad all is well, you were missed :)

  6. Sadly no, San, lol. The top the baby is wearing is my handiwork, and Jenna is wearing an Ashleigh knit in the picture with the peg dolls, but Morgan's cardigan where she is climbing on the park is one we bought years ago. I do keep looking at it and wondering if I'd be able to make another though!

  7. YAH! You're back online!

    Looks like a wonderful week :-)



  8. Lovely to catch up with you. What a joyful week. I love seeing the 'growing things' photos, so excitng. We're going to plant potatoes and salad leaves today.
