I seem to have a lot on the go at the moment, but don't seem to be achieving much. I'm working on a sewing project, a crochet project and a knitting project, all at once. I'm also in the process of writing up a new pattern. I do wish I could be more organised and write neat methodical notes. However I seem to generate chaotic notes combined with squiggles. Hopefully it will all come together in the end.

My son is also working towards his A Levels at the moment, hes a bit of a messy worker as well.....I do wonder where he gets it from! The paper mountain is growing daily. I'm waiting till he finishes before it all goes in the recycle bin,

Good luck to anyone, sitting exams at the moment.
Till next time, Ali.


  1. Best wishes to your son, I remember all of that so well with my two and wouldn't want to do it again! My advice is definitely do not throw anything out, because as soon as you do something will be missing!

  2. I know how you feel. Life seems that way for me too at the moment. Not condusive to creativity!

  3. OOh Ali -love seeing how you (both!) work!
    My notes are always full of my own shorthand and squiggles - sometimes I don't understand them when I return to the pattern - they always seemed so clear at the time!
    Hope the biscuit crumb doesn't become mistaken for a pattern instruction!
    Creative chaos reigning here too!
    Soon be holiday time!!

  4. the photo of the bin made me laugh so much. I too remember those days and aren't sorry they are over.
    I must show you a photo of my family history notes, that really is chaos. your pattern looks quite organised


Id love to hear what you think about my blog, knits etc.
