Since I've been a tad quiet recently blogwise, I figured I'd pop by and give you a little eggbird update :)
This afternoon, I've been working away on a new crochet pattern inspired by the design in the bottom right hand corner on this page. For some reason, I started with a bit of a collage using scraps of fabric (MUCH recommended for the fun-factor by the way!) and sort of went from there.
The pattern isn't quite right yet, but it should be ready soon - looking forward to sharing it with you all :)
Since last posting, I've finished and blocked the Tilting Tardises...
...sadly, very very sadly, it's come out a bit too short. Well, saying that, perhaps really it's just an average size, but I don't like to have scarves too tightly wrapped. Still, it's a lovely pattern, and I have a few ideas about what I'll use this FO for instead - more on that soon :)
Once the Tardises were finished, I set sail on the Frost Flowers scarf. Boy-oh-boy it's been slow going!! This is what I have to show for approx 2 weeks... on the plus side, at this rate it's gonna be ready for winter and that's the main thing!

Recently I've really been getting back into reading again, and making great use of the library in town. At the moment I'm partway through Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger as well as a book about Houdini. Both are brill.
If you have any book recommendations, I'd love to hear them. I've been stocking up on things to read over the summer and it'd be great to hear some suggestions :)
