The past few days have been particularly slow. My little Emma has been ever so fussy and clingy, we think she must be having a growth spurt. This has also meant that during the day she is wanting to feed every hour and a half and for longer than usual, as I am breast feeding this means spending most of the day sat on the sofa unable to do much else. Usually this would not be a problem(!) but it has coincided with the week I was supposed to be packing up our flat for our house move this weekend.
I have unfortunately achieved next to nothing, but I still have the best part of two days left to get it done, that’s plenty right?! On the up side she is smiling more and more and I can’t get enough of her smiling face! Trying to catch it on camera is proving to be a challenge though! The above photo was quickly snapped on my phone hence the poor quality.
There are, however, a few things I have realised I can do whilst feeding or letting Emma sleep on my lap. Crochet is one of them! On my hook at the moment is a new cushion cover. Our current scatter cushions for the sofa are getting a bit tired looking and I want something more colourful for our new home. I also have a huge stash of acrylic yarn to use up!
The other thing I can manage whilst Emma is feeding is one handed internet browsing. I can spend money on eBay! I have a couple (read list as long as my arm) of big crochet projects in mind and I really wanted to try a new yarn with a high cotton content without spending too much. I had read a few reviews of Rico Design Creative Cotton aran weight and found a great selection on eBay so this week I bought a brand new yarn stash that I can’t wait to dive in to!
Well as my little lady is taking a nap I really ought to try and get on with some packing… don’t you just love moving house!?

Wish my stash would be as big as yours!
