On the hook!

OK so I know it's bee A.G.E.S since I posted last and I do apologise. Life has been a bit cray cray, it all started about 7 weeks ago, I went into hospital with suspected appendicitis, I spent 3 days in hospital, two of which were fasting, but it turned out it wasn't my appendix, what it was we'll probably never know! Then about 2 weeks later Mr Musing went into hospital with, guess what, suspected appendicitis! His turned out to be more serious, it was diverticulitis. After about 4 days of fasting, IV antibiotics and rest he was able to come home. Then my father who had been ill for a number of weeks already was admitted to hospital to have his meds adjusted, leaving after 12 days! Fun fact, between the three of us we all stayed on all three ward levels of the hospital! But we're all on the mend now thanks goodness!

Something I've been working on in my spare time the past few months has been crochet! I have FINALLY conquered the granny square.

PJ's, a dog and crochet to me is a good time!
Progress shot.
Cushion front using pretty verigated yarn.
Little rug I bought from the Ladies Auxiliary at the hospital.
My Great Aunt made this for my Nana, it now lives on my bed.

I'm loving crochet I must say, it's such an easy portable craft, I've got my "crochet bag" with all my yarns and hooks, so much fun! I can't wait to flex my crochet muscles a little and try something new crochet wise, I want to try something in a round.

I've had a few people ask which tutes I've used to learn so here are some links...

This is a great step by step video lessons on beginning crochet. Dana is a great teacher!

Bugaloospoodle has put together some great video's also, worth a look! 

I've also just found Bethintexas1 youtube channel. 

If you have any link to tutes feel free to leave them in the comments and I'll check them out!

That's all from me today, I will try not to leave my next post as long, I promise!!!

Till next time...



  1. Oh my goodness. That has been a tough time! Glad to read that you're all on the mend now.
    Brilliant granny square. Sounds like you've needed some crochet of late. It is so good being portable and all.

    1. Thanks Sally, very much on the mend.

      Portability is one of the things I love about crochet!
