For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

taking stock: April

I always find these Taking Stock posts super-helpful for catching up with myself and with you! I have been busy busy and feel like I haven't given myself a lot of time to properly collect my thoughts lately, let alone try to write them down here with pretty pictures. Also, haven't finished anything I'm able to share here just yet (hint hint: exciting project reveal to come!).

So, here's what I'm up to at the moment. How are things with you?

Making: This top which is so nearly finished! 
Cooking: As little as possible. 
Drinking: Mint green tea – it's the best of both. Leave the teabag in if you're feeling particularly wild! 
Reading: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. Sooooo 2012. I'm really late to the party.
Wanting: everyone I know to just live in one place - would make life so much easier! 
Looking: forward to the #CraftyBlissChallenge starting on Friday – my first Insta challenge!
Deciding: gym twice a week may be necessary.
Wishing: I'd gone for shorter hair years ago! 
Enjoying: the #crochetgirlgang hashtag on Instagram – encouragement and vibrant stitchery. 
Waiting: for Saltwater sandal season to begin - come on sunshine! 
Liking: swatching. Never thought I'd say that. 
Wondering: how long I can put off big, scary grown up decisions. Ugh.
Loving: blossom everywhere.
Pondering: a big adventure.
Considering: investing in a decent yoga mat - mine's become both slippery and crumbly.
Buying: all the teabags.
Watching: my sister ace her career goals with so much honesty and love. She's magical.
Hoping: a big project I have in mind will come together. Watch this space.
Needing: to book a proper holiday this year. Any recommendations?
Questioning: my priorities. This one needs some more thought! 
Following: @tasteofstreep on Instagram – makes me hoot without fail. 
Thinking: cheap weekend breaks would be easier if we had some wheels! Camping without a car? I don't think so.
Disliking: the big city pollution we live in. Yuck. 
Snacking: on banana with a way-too-generous slathering of Nutella. Mr P's genius idea. 
Hearing: the Relevant podcast on my walk to work, then a crafty one on my way home.

As always, this Taking Stock post was inspired by Pip. Visit her blog to find a full list you can copy.  


  1. Love your top:) I'm also enjoying the #crochetgirlgang hashtag ... there're many talented women

  2. I love your taking stock posts! Green tea with mint is awesome, I agree. I'll have to try that slather of nutella on a banana... or maybe it's too addictive.
