Hello and Welcome to the Summerhouse by the Sea.
This is the first time I've taken part in the 'Grown your blog 'party held by 2 Bags Full and to be totally honest with you I only remembered in the nick of time that it's running today, oops never mind.
So my names Clare and I've been blogging for a couple of years now at the Summerhouse by the Sea here in the UK. Above is a picture of my lovely
Old I mean vintage Summerhouse which is home to my crafting and is affectionately know around these parts as the shed.
Where I love to create all sorts of things from crochet to arts and crafts, there is always something going on here and a ever growing pile of WIP's
Since I've been blogging and crocheting I've been making seasonal wreaths and last year saw me complete the set with my Summer and Autumn Wreaths and I was lucky enough to have a picture of my Summertime wreath published in Crafts Beautiful magazine, (such a wonderful surprise)
I'm in blanket making mode at the moment, working on a couple of Attic 24 Cosy Blankets and also a granny blanket. I'm a bit of a one for starting new projects.
As well as working on getting things finished for a local craft exhibition due to start at the end of February with themes of The Owl and the Pussycat, Fantasia, Egypt and Masks (still in the planning stage eek).
So what else goes on here at the Summerhouse, well a lots of resting too as I suffer with quite severe ME/Lyme disease and spend most of my time stuck in bed, but a positive of this is it's led me to discover my creative side, as regular readers will know I had a bit of a tough time with my health over the last twelve months and my blog and all the other lovely like minded people you meet in blogland have helped cheer me on through the tough times so I very grateful for that.
One last thing you all should know about the Summerhouse is that it stands in a garden full of beautiful flowers and I quite often like to share mosaic's of what's going on out in the garden.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have enjoyed you're visit. I've recently set up a Facebook page for the blog which you can find 'here' feel free to have a look around the blog archive too.
