After a break of 6 weeks or so.... my mojo for this project is finally back! Enjoying the sunny afternoon with a gin and tonic and a spot of swan hooking! Not too shabby eh!
Just before I left for work this morning, I couldn’t resist taking a quick snap of this beauty sat on the dresser in the craft-room. Just the cutest! Pattern = @picapauyan yarn= @scheepjes cotton 8.

Pure and simple! I love to wake up to this every morning.... it sits at the base of my bed 1 Meter in diameter. it’s white and very simple looking, until you look again and see how intricate the stitch work is. It’s one of my proudest makes, proudest possessions in fact. What’s the make that you’re most proud of? Matt x
Keep plodding along with these squares..... oh my how they make me happy! Loving the colors so much! X

Totally camp, totally fun! This is me having a swell of a time with my favorite dancing partner..... my yarn. This clip is taken from my latest blog post where I review the fabulous @scheepjes stone washed /river washed colour pack. Pop over to the blog (www.boyandbunting.com) to read and watch the full review, plus have a laugh or two as I prance around for a good moment or so. Happy Sunday! Matt x
Every now and then we are getting spots of sunshine.... I just love it, Spring is around the corner and that makes me feel so happy! At the moment things are busy, projects are on the go and my focus feels split in too many directions. Just need to hold on for a few more weeks and the calm will arrive! Unfortunately I have no new projects to share with you, instead a snap from the living room before I left for work. The tulips give me so much energy and make the color from my crocheted pillow and blanket pop! I just love this little space in my apartment! Hope you’re all well and good? I’ll be back soon.... promise! Matt x
My absolute favorite things over the past days..... 1.Working on my latest project and making tons of cute squares with gorgeous yarn. 2. Reading through the new book from Oprah Whinfrey, tons of inspiration and wise words 3.Burning some incense at home and letting the soothing smell calm my thoughts. 4. Enjoying cute and whimsical products that aid me with my crafting. It’s small things but they are truly making me happy! What are your happy things? Matt x
Worked really hard today on blog stuff! I found the key for me is to plan my day before I get to it. So I’ve really been making a point of writing down my ideas and plans, so that I can make the most out of the time I have.... so far, so good! I’ve been designing a new project today. A project that I hope will come to life. As is normal when I have an idea I need to find the right yarn and perfect color combo, so I’ve been playing around with my stash of @scheepjes yarns! Let’s hope it turns out the way I imagine! 🤞
When you get to the end of a week like this, I can’t help but feel huge amounts gratitude! It’s been a week of personal achievements, which couldn’t have happened without the support and encouragement from the people that I’ve met through out the past days. Old friends, new friends, teachers and mentors everybody has had a point of view for me to consider, sound advice from many, that I am sure to put to practice. I feel hugely inspired about my crafting journey as well as my dancing.... I’m excited about the upcoming months. For those who have sprinkled your magic on me this week.... I thank you... now to end my week with a spot of crafting....I’m locking myself away in my lovely craft room, glass of wine at hand 🍷
Yummy!!! This is the new @scheepjes Stonewashed & Riverwashed cutie pie set. They are little 10g balls that are just SCREAMING at me to be worked up into something lovely. I’m gonna ponder it though for a little while longer, until I find the perfect project/ idea for them! X

This mornings colour play.... all reds and whites 🍄
The great thing about having some time out is my brain has been allowed to wonder. I’ve taken a few days off from work this week and have pretty much locked myself away in my craft room. For some that sounds utterly dull, for me it’s been complete bliss! I’ve been working hard on the blog, updating things that need to be updated, planning and playing with ideas. Getting lost in color play! I have a fun idea spinning around my head. It’s going to take a little while before this surfaces as something real, but it’s a work in progress and it’s exciting me no end! These are the vibrant and yummy colors I’ve chosen, inspired by a design I saw on a friends pair of 🧦. This color combo of @scheepjes cotton8 screams sunshine.... I’m in love 😍
Today, unlike my usual Monday’s has been a really productive one. Filmed a review of a book, soon to be up on YouTube, Then had a play with these yummy sparks of squishyness! This is the brand spanking new river washed and stonewashed cutie pie set from @scheepjes! They are available from scheepjes stockists Feb 8th. Seriously....GORGEOUS!
