Making lovely things certainly comes with ups and downs. Sometimes for two steps forward you need to take a step back. That was me today as I frogged a good few hours of work. The stitches weren’t quite working out and so I thought it was best to re-do some of my work. It’s part of the process and something that I know in the long term I’ll look back and know that I made the right choice pulling my work and giving it another try. Frustrating but necessary. I’m totally happy with my work now though!! Yiiiiipeeee!!!
Last night I felt inspired to get my hook out and just start making something. Something simple and meditative, bright and bold. I’m loving it so far and the colors are giving me all sorts of life! Let’s see where it ends ups, but for now I’m more than happy with it. A BIG HAPPY RAINBOW ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
If that’s not a splurge of happy colours, I don’t know what is. I’ve been playing around with a new mandala pattern. I’m writing it up as I work it out..... nothing like some mathematics on a Sunday afternoon to keep the brain engaged! What are you all working on/ up to? Matt x
Cooeeee! I’m back! Hope you’re all doing fabulously? What a great month I’ve had, taking a break from my blog was nice. Taking a break from social media was HEAVENLY! I needed the break from the fake. The month has really made me shift in energy and focus, literally reevaluating my life and realizing what I want and what is actually important to me. With some new insight, new focusses are heading my way and I am beyond excited. So the month was spent in London dancing, working extremely hard.... and guess what.... this boy can still get his legs up! I’m back home now and keeping the new focus but of course doing a little blog/ crafting work along side. Today I started working in a fun little project from a book that had been delivered during my absence... whimsical stitches by @amenagerieofstitches I’ll let you know how I get on, and pop a review of the book up on my blog at the weekend, so you can all have a peep. Hope things have been good with you all I’ve missed out interaction ☺️Matt xxx
Hell lovelies! Hope you’re all doing well? So I’ve been thinking about the next weeks and I’ve decided that I’m taking a little time out. I’m in London at the moment and spending a nice chunk of time here working hard on myself, my dancing, my head... and exploring what I really want out of... well.....EVERYTHING. Taking a break from the social media is needed, sometimes it’s so consuming and honestly we all know that it’s not “real life”. I’ll probably continue to post some live videos and maybe you’ll get the occasional post... but nothing frequent I’m afraid. I hope you understand that a break is sometimes needed, a bit of self reflection and a time of no judgement, no pressure to deliver and no comparison of my real life compared to a glossy Instagram shot. I’ll be back properly mid July.... Thanks always for the love and support you give to me and my crochet work. Your encouragement fuels my creativity! Matt x
M is for Matt, that’s me! M is for mushroom 🍄 M is for Mini Make Along! Toadstool tin caddy pattern is released tomorrow at 10.00am.... are you joining the fun? Info about the pattern, yarn and equipment needed for the MAL is over on my blog and also on the @scheepjes official Facebook page.
I’m teaming up with @scheepjes next week to host a mini make along! Rather cunningly named a “SHROOM-ALONG”! It’s a fun little make, looks super cute, but is also really functional as you can store all of your crochet hooks, stitch markers and darning needles inside. Not to mention the top is a rather handy pin cushion! If you fancy joining in, more info is available on my blog! Mushroom 🍄 Matt x
