Snatching moments...

My creative space...

...snatching moments...at school pick up...during snack time at bush kinder...waiting for dancing to finish...when they are asleep...when I should be asleep...

...hooking squares...

...dreaming about colour and pattern combinations...

...over locking edges...

...finally finishing a little dress and popping it in my shop...

...only ten rows left of the main part of my cardi...then the sleeves...

Have a wonderful and creative Thursday...

  9. "snatching moments" is something I need to learn - I only seem to start something if I think I have a lot of time... which means I don't get started... enjoying your lovely creations again Kate!

  17. I am constantly amazed at how much time those snatches add up to. I'm on to the very end of a pair of wristwarmers. Cast on on Monday (gymnastics pick up), with a scheduled cast off this afternoon (swimming).

    The cardi is looking fab. I reckon I can guess which one it is and if so, I'm afraid I'm already in the queue for copying...

  18. Always a pleasure to see what you're up to, Kate. I love how portable crochet seems to be. The anytime, anywhere craft option!! x

  19. nice idea those snatched moments - when they work out well, i feel such a sense of accomplishment, when they work out badly i am a basketcase... like the tangle ball below...

    Thanks for letting me know it is not just me

    And gorgeous dress.

  23. Loving the look of your new cardi. I am being drawn to the shades of grey/silver which I suddenly seem to "seeing" everywhere or is it just my attention being drawn to them

  24. Beautiful dress Kate, one of my favourites you've done so far!! And esp love you are crocheting again, I think its cause I can't knit anything useful that I don't love knitty stuff!! Hope things are drying out down there for you guys.

  31. may have to snatch a few moments with you & Beck sometime in the next couple of weeks, let me now what days are definitely a no go.

  32. It is so hot here I cannot even think about touching wool- although ballet and swimming do provide important - have to sit still and be quiet moments when I could be actually doing something rather than playing with the iphone.

  33. We sound similar this wek - I feel like the only time I have had to craft has been stolen and should be doing something else (and really should not be on the computer:)
    Have a great weekend - think that we are heading camping:)

  34. i love your first line, this school stuff is full on, think i may need a pair of needles.

    ReplyDelete
  35. ooh, I'm loving the snatches of time too, in different ways: waiting for toast - stack dishwasher, waiting for phone call - read blogs, makes me feel so much more productive!

  37. Lovely creative space Kate - at least I'm not the only "weird" mum crocheting at a kids class :)
    Your little smocks look great with the pockets - lovely to see darkside of a single hook appearing ;)
    And the grey shadings of your cardi are wonderful, beats a flat colour hands down.

  38. *cues spooky music*

    Okay... so. I admired your lovely pictures of things to be grateful for in my reader, while going about my business & clicking other blogs to comment on, not because I didn't think this post was comment-worthy, but because I didn't have anything particularly profound to say & I knew you would already have a multitude of people gushing over everything...

    But then... there it was, open in a new tab all it's own, obviously requiring some action on my behalf.

    Odd, oui?

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
