Mary Poppins Grand Prix.. o_0 ?!!

Look what arrived into my inbox last night! The wonderfully talented DAWN has been crocheting up a storm again and has totallee hit it out of the Quidditch park with this bright beautiful Ron Weasley panel !!
your work Dawn!!!! Thank you for sending in a snap !
Dawn also mentioned that she would definitely reccommend the Ron panel to any beginners out there who are looking to get their hooks stuck into a piece
If you are itching to give it a go, the pattern for our fave Weasley can be found H E R E
In Bert and Mary news, EYES GUYS!!! !!!

I feel like a bit of a knob for going on and on about palette worries now, because as per usual, once the eyes come into play, the piece comes alive and I am very happy with the result !! Very eager to put my hook into overdrive and strive for the finish line this week !
Is there a Mary Poppins crochet Grand Prix?!? Well if there isn't, there is now !!
Side note, whilst on the subject of Disney, if you haven't checked out Jamie Jo aka. BananaJamana on Youtube, YOU REALLY MUST!!!
She's as cute as a button and is such a gifted artist and is a lover of all things Disney!
She just kicked off a special wedding themed series on her channel, as she is preparing for her Disney themed wedding (ADORABLE or what ) and in her latest vid, she makes her Disney 'tsum tsum' themed bouquet !
Check it out!!

Looking pretty shnazzy @ 70% eh Guv'nor?!?!
So hard to convey just how much this film means to me
I'm definitely surfing the nostalgia wave everytime I pick up the hook on this one
Then through the week I hear talks of Disney looking to make a spin-off film?!?! WHAT THE FUDGE!?!?!?
I wish to crickey the big studios would come up with something FRESH and put a stop to rehashing or re-vamping old films/cartoons/etc...
Thankgod for the Pixar team and J.K. because there seems to be a serious lack of imagination and storytelling in Hollywood right now!
I KNOW i'm in the minority here, because I am definitely not a fan of super hero movies, but sheesh...they're all the freaking same! Crappy story meets amazing graphics...but surely it can only be repeated SO MANY TIMES??!
/ Rant.
Clearly I need to get back to my happy place....

Howdy folks! Apologies for being M.I.A this last little while. I have been here looking INSANELY attractive with tissues shoved up my nostrils, watery eyes and a head that feels like it is constantly over-heating and is almost ready to explode.....
YAY FLU!!! !!!!
UGGGGHHHH.... so.over.it.
ANYWHO! On a brighter note, I have put hook to yarn as much as possible and have taken Bert and Mary to the 60%! mark!

Sadly I think I may have 'done a Mary' when choosing this palette (4+ years ago) and have made the shading of her facial features too dark !
Although I won't reeeeeally know until we have a whole face to see the full effect... there's still hope it will turn out okay guys!! !!

I've also spent the moments when I haven't had a splitting headache to try and lessen my abysmal lag in the Popsugar reading challenge! I'M BEHIND SCHEDULE BY 5 BOOKS!!!! WTH?!?!??! Ugh i'm a total FAIL.
Although, i'm not doing myself any favours by choosing THE FATTEST BOOKS I CAN FIND o_0!!

'The Book of Strange New Things' by Michel Faber is SO GOOD thus far!!! I've no idea where i'm going to 'slot it in' as far as my popsugar reading challenges go, but i'm so glad I picked it up
As well as being behind on my reading, i'm also ridiculously behind in filming my progress for my Youtube channel! It's been 5 months!! And although i'm 5 books behind schedule as far as the challenge goes, I HAVE read 31 books so far this year and I most certainly haven't mentioned anywhere near that on my channel so, I gotta get filming !!! However between being sick as a dog and living back with my 'rents whilst my house is being spruced up, I haven't been in the filming mood
Here's hoping i'll be on the mend soon!!! Shall try and get myself up to speed in the meantime!
