ok goodish good

ok - goodish - good are my current descriptors.
3 little words that I use to describe my photos [ok], my mood [good], the health of my children [ok], the state of my home [goodish], last night's chicken soup [good].

I have left out hellish and fantastic. Descriptors belonging on opposite ends of the scale. Words I would need to use if I was describing work or lovely Chocolate Cottage cappuccinos with a praline chocolate on the side. 

I have been indulging in a decent amount of beauty therapy at the moment. The the kind that requires the softest wool in graduating shades of blossom pink to raspberry to plum.

It's the kind of therapy that lifts me from my work induced [hellish] mood to that of a more serene-happy-mummy [good] mood.

I am using Attic 24's simple Teeny Tiny Flowers pattern to crochet a multitude of happy daisies and then stitching them together. I am envisioning a pretty scarf with lovely loooong woolly tassels at the ends. It's not the first time I've used this pattern with beautiful results.

p.s. I'm working on the work thing. Aiming for good.


  1. Lovely idea and such beautiful colours. I'll look forward to seeing your finished scarf. They would look lovely as a necklace too. Craft as therapy is good. Cx

  2. Can't wait to see the finished result.

    And hope you find a solution for your hellish work situation soon x

  3. Sounds marvellous! And love your use of descriptive word matching!

  4. This looks so very gorgeous. And the colours are just yummy.

  5. Love the way the colors grade into each other. Yum!

  6. This looks so lovely - the softness of the colours and the wool go together so well. Here's hoping work picks up for you and you can get to good with it!

  7. My daughter thought the scarf looked more than good! Beautiful!

  8. Thank you, thank you lovely people for your happy, beautiful comments. xx Cate

  9. Many companies today offer keyless entry devices on your home, means to monitor
    your house from your smartphone and even video monitoring equipment
    so you could watch your house. Regular CCTV systems work
    just as effectively as domed or wireless versions and can be purchased for reasonable amounts.

    Some are rather cheap, but the very best will cost over a
    hundred dollars and sometimes more than a thousand dollars.
