Holidays from Home

This year, because we're moving house in just over a month (eek!) and because last year we got so fed up of camping in the rain, we decided this year we would have a "holiday from home".

We've explored footpaths near to our house

Today though I have four rather tired children so I think we'll have a gentle day. I might even have some time to turn the heel on my sock :-)

My ripple blanket is growing slowly and my Grace cardigan just needs sleeves and button bands. There's no rush though, family time is more important :-)

Happy crafting everyone :-)

  7. I love the idea of vacationing from home!!! too often we forget the lovely things that are nearby, simply because we are used to them!

  9. We call that a "staycation" in the States, and yours looks lovely. There is so much to see and do when you are a train ride from London!

  10. Hopping over from Ginny's Yarn Along.

    Lovely pictures. I think in a way holidays at home are the best - in particular with kids. We've just come back from a holiday abroad and all that packing, plus the changes in routine, with three young children... although it was fun it's also really exhausting. Planning a home holiday next...

    Oh, and I love the ripple blanket. I've been meaning to make one forever. Maybe this summer. :)
