Hooking marvellous

We all went to the lovely and Historic city of York on Saturday. We lived there for many years back when it was just me and Paul. So we always feel like we are going home even though we've had a few other homes in between. Some happy some not. Anyway as I am always with my camera I happened to snap this in the market

Don't you just want to dive in?

Its a lovely city. I would recommend it to anyone who fancies a weekend away or indeed a longer break. I have noticed that many of my visitors are American and York is popular with travellers from over the pond. Come on over, us Northern folk are reet friendly!!
I don’t know if I have ever mentioned it before but, although undiagnosed, I believe that I suffer from a form of craft mania. I craft and craft without stopping for months on end, during which I start a new project every week and finish nowt. I am in such a phase right now with loads of UFO’s in the workroom. I know what comes next and that is complete can’t be botheredness. I will get over this and I’ll be off again. Posts might be a bit lean then though. Here are a collection of the latest Ufo’s

One of them is a lovely bag that is mostly finished and only needs a handle. Any ideas for how I might make one?

This is the latest, I've been wanting to start for ages and got the yarn last week. Its a lot like waves on the sea and is to go in the bedroom. I got the pattern from a wonderfully generous lady on Ravelry (where else) you can see it along with my other projects here.
Well if I finish the bag I will blog it to you later this week.
Cheerio chums.

  1. Haven't been to York gosh since the early 90's and I loved it,all the streets and individual shops,and quaint tea rooms,the sort of place I would certainly go without my darling nearly 2 yr old:)You tackle those aliens,ha ha they will be shocked!I'm sure if I could craft I would be the same start something then go on to start something else instead of finishing the 1st one:)I saw some bags that had belts as handles and they looked fab! loving your sea coloured bag,oh summer here we come!beckyxx

  2. I absolutely suffer from the same soft of craft mania problem as you! So many projects on the go and then suddenly little motivation to finish any of them.
    York looks like a fabulous place to visit. If I ever make it back across the pond I'll put it on my list of places to visit.
    Have a great day!

  3. UFOs is such a good name for unfinished objects! That is cool! Your bag looks interesting and I like the waverly crochet in blue!
    Hope you have a nice Easter!

  5. Thank goodness someone else with UFOs and the honesty to admit a loss of Mojo. At least we do know we will get our Mojo back and the UFOs will turn into FOs. (Sounds a bit rude!) lol
