There isnt much in life that can not be cured with tea and cake or tea and crochet. Family and friends are usually required for both too.
Cake and crochet hold similar decisions for me. What to make next, what combination of colours and ingredients to play with, how to recreate cakes or crochet items I have seen in shops.
My crochet has given me back some time just for me. It's not a great deal of time and it is often snatched in very small bursts but its something I can do whenever and wherever am and doesn't have to come at the expense of time with my family.
I can curl up with the children and a film and add to my crochet or I can take myself off on my own to the coffee shop with it.
There are so many things I want to make that choosing what comes next is a tough decision. Just when I think I have decided on my next project, another crochet friend finds something else fantastic to make.
