So here it is, in my mind long awaited, my first attempt at a blog entry. I don't normally have problems chatting, but somehow starting this is a little weird. I'm almost waiting to hear the echo of my voice coming back

"Is there anybody out there?"

I have so enjoyed hearing what everyone else gets on with in their blogs, that I wanted to be a part of it all too.
Gathering In

A little about myself, I live with my husband and three boys in Wales on a sheep and beef farm. I dabble in lots of different makey things, I paint landscapes and animals, I play a plethora of different instruments and I love to cook. I am unfortunately so busy doing those things, I find I hard to fit the mundane things (like housework) in! 

I started crocheting just over a year ago, and just can't get it out of my system.  If you can crochet one in an hour, I probably have.  I'm not great at long-term projects, but have discovered that if I do some little things at the same time, then somehow it will all come together.  I fear I may have a blanket addiction, and have a burning desire to make a granny stripe, which hasn't happened yet, as I won't allow myself until I finish the boring blanket I started in March.  I was young and foolish then and went with the first idea I there it is......make your bed and sleep in it!  In the meantime I can only dream about what my life will be like with a huge granny stripe blanket.

Well, if there is just one person I may have met today, it has been lovely to meet you, I look forward to hopefully meeting you again. Faith x


  1. Well hello there Faith! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging! I hope you have a fab time!

    It can all be a little daunting at first and you sometimes may feel like you are talking to yourself, but just visit people and leave comments like you did on mine saying hi and people will find you then!

    Enjoy, and have a super rest of a day!

  2. Hi there, too!!
    Just found you via a comment you made at Grateful4crochet and I just had to come see you!
    Such a great start to a new blog!
    I also am a recent crochet-learner- I also am no good at long term projects (I know I have a gorgeous, huge blanket in me somewhere, but when??!!)
    so I've found some other little crochet things to make and just love it!! Lastly, I also have a Mister who absolutely despairs of the amount of time I spend here. *sigh*.
    Am your newest follower and can't wait to see what you're up to! If you have time, do pop over and say hi at my end of blogland- I'd love to see you!

  3. Me again - just reading your posts and had to say, I love your painting! I used to sketch - mainly portraits, but I just don't have the time these days - I do hope that one day I'll rediscover those abilities, must be in there somewhere *looks at hands*

    Have a lovely week,


  4. Well hello, your comments have not lead me to your blog, but I'm so glad another link did. What a delightful read. I can't wait to see the blanket you're making. I love the poppy cushion and can't wait till you start the granny stripe blanket, I have made one from Lucy at Attic 24's pattern and it is a fave pattern comes together so nicely, Well I'm adding you to my blog roll can't wait to read more.


I'd love to hear what you think, and I won't be asking you to jump through hoops (or fill in a captcha) to do it.............
