3 years

Today marks this little blog's third year anniversary. I know I've said it the last two years but, I seriously cannot believe that I've managed to keep it going. A lot has happened over those three years and I really love the fact that I've got the blog to look back on it all. To anyone out there thinking of starting a blog, I'd say that that is a very good reason to start.

Here are some of my highlights...
➳ Finally completing my parents' quilt - an 11 month labour of love
  A particularly great May weekend wherein we found our wedding reception venue
➳ Making a conscious decision to cut down on cooking meat at home
➳ A blissful week long holiday in the Italian countryside 
➳ Making the most out of the unbelievably good weather in July - days in the park, BBQs, car boot sale-ing
➳ The Festival of Quilts 2013 and seeing my quilt on display
➳ Silent Disco in the Science Museum
➳ A rather random trip to the coast for the day
➳ Spending some quality time with my sister - musical bingo, getting tattooed, having brunch and going to renegade craft fair
➳ Managing to knit something other than a scarf
➳ Climbing mount snowdon
➳ Experiencing my first Thanksgiving and being Mitch's sous chef on Christmas day
➳ Having a good laugh with Mitch at the Hay Hill Gallery
➳ Attending a big old family get-together for my granddad's 90th
➳ Finally visiting the Horniman Museum and the Barbican conservatory

A HUGE thanks to everyone who stops by here to read my ramblings and to everyone who takes the time to comment - it really does mean a lot :)

I'm off to make some pasties, hope you're having a good weekend!
