I'm Back .......... well kinda

Hello Blogland
it's been a while :)
Let me start by explaining my absence ....

.... all of my crafty stash is packed away in boxes and crates waiting for us to move!!! That's not all, unfortunately I will no longer have a craft room, as we are downsizing from 4 bedrooms to 2. The good thing about that is I have got rid of all my jewellery, hair accessories, altered art etc stuff and kept stash to make my cards and smash books. We have been waiting since 27th January to be found a house so hopefully it wont be too much longer.
For a start I was OK as I was busy sorting things we would keep and things to get rid of in the house but once that was done and I didn't have my craft room to go play in, I go bored and needed something to keep me busy, so I dug out my crochet hook and made my cousin a blanket for her new baby, due next month.

My auntie gave me some oddments of wool she had left from her knitting, mum got me some assorted balls from her local charity shop, and a my good friend Vera gave me a huge bag of gorgeous wool. I had loads of wool in all different colours, what would I make next ???
Blankets for the furbabies

I think they like them

So now I have my crochet on and I'm loving it.
I have made 2 cushions for the new house, with 4 more to make, made my mum some flowers to sew on a bed cover she crochet, and right now I am working on a mothers day pressie but shhhhhhh no telling her & lots of squares to be made into a blanket for hubby (he is always cold).
I have also brought the wool to make us a throw for our bed in the new house. Ashleigh has moved into her first house with her fiance Andrew and she has asked me to make her some cushions and a throw, and Andrews mum has asked me to make her some cushions too. Looks like my hooks will be busy for a while.
I have also decided to have a go at ATC's. I have made myself a kit in an Artbin Satchel case I brought (bargain at £5.00), so I can carry it around and at least be able to get a little bit of paper crafting done until we get moved and I unpack & organise all my stash again. I will show you my ATC attempts as and when I have them done.

That's all for now
Happy Crafting
