Secret is almost out!

Merry POST Christmas everyone!
I hope you rewarded yourselves with an 'access all areas' pass and INDULGED heavily !!
The snapshot above pretty much tells the story of what I got up to on Christmas day... circles. Lots and lots of crocheted circles
Why you may ask?!?!
Well, i'll be able to REVEAL ALL......soon.
Definitely next week !!
I cannot tell you how hyped I am about showing you guys what I have been working away on! I will of course be SHOWING you via a 'crochet catch-up' video on youtube, but I will also be posting pics here as well gotta make sure I cover all those bases!
I'll also be able to explain my lack of updates/absence in context, which is super hard to do via a blogpost, so stay tuned
Eeeee!!! Literally so excited to show you guys this project !!!
It's going to be lovely starting 2018 off with a HUGE update for you all!!
I hope you've all found time to get hookin' over the holiday period!! BRING ON THE NEW YEAR I SAY !!!

Christmas 99% Loaded!

I must admit something pretty sad right off the bat here....
See that smiling, happy, bouncy santa on the left?!
I look forward to using him, ALL YEAR!!!
Honest to goodness have you seen a happier lil Santa?!
Year. Made.
As you can see, I am very, very, very easy to please


It is currently lunchtime on Chrissy Eve here. It's a stinker 35 degrees with muggy, storm clouds brewing but the 'great shift' as I dub it appears to have happened. Everyone on my street has slowly moved from a crazy collective stress-ball state, into that slightly giddy, slightly relaxed type state
Or maybe everyone has just reached their exhaustion point all at once
Either way! The festive feels appear to be in the air !
Christmas is going to be an incredibly quiet time for me. A lot has happened over the past few weeks and sadly, none of it has been good. Understandably, I don't want to be a Debby Downer on Chrissy, so I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a fun, happy, merry and festive time ! Please eat a stupid amount of food, drink a stupid amount of whatever makes you happy sing along to carols as loudly and obnoxiously as you can (preferably out of key, as it makes those of us who can't carry a tune in a bucket feel better) and for goodness sake, smile your socks off!!
Merry Christmas guys

Rain, rain, go away!

I have one word to say to you guys. RAIN
Holy dooly, it has been BUCKETING down for the past 48hrs!!! So much so, I had little 'flooded areas' in the backyard! Not puddles you understand. No, no no. FULL ON FLOODING!!!
Good grief! I think it was a month's worth of the wet stuff in a 2 day period. So as you can imagine, I have been A MISERABLE HUMAN BEING
Don't get me wrong! Usually I love the rain, but when you're trying to HOUSE TRAIN a very timid Labrador... it has not been fun.
However, the sun is out now and thankfully we haven't had any accidents but wowie, my nerves have been slightly on edge, being couped up and unable to go for walkies !!
Anywayz! Hopefully the two of us can rack up some mileage this week and get our legs pumping!
On the upside, I've had quite a bit of crochet-time!

The lovely Ms. Bergman is now at 30%!
We have more glove action, more detailed jacket action and now some delightful curls action starting to happen
We also have a lovely long neck in progress and a chin is not too far away !!!
Most excitingly, the background is soon to appear over her left shoulder!! Now THAT is what I am really excited to see!!
As I mentioned previously, I've changed things up a bit from Cary's background, as sadly his came out a lot more blobby than spacey Which isn't too bad, but it's not really what I was aiming for, but Ingrid's background, ouuuuuuuuuuuu if the effect works the way I want it to!!! IT'S GOING TO LOOK SO FRICKEN COOL!!!! !!!!
I need to calm down and hold some horses, seriously...
Hope you're all well and are starting to get all jingly and tinselly and generally Christmassy !!
Not long to go!!
