This week…

Hello lovelies! Friday again already? Time is going so quickly at the moment, so here’s a little round up from the week that was.

Mostly this week I have…

Been thinking: wondering what ingredients I’ll put in my chocolate tiffin next time I make it. I like Lucy‘s suggestion of cranberries.

Added some colour to the mantlepiece: goodbye winter whites and silver and hello spring brights.

Made progress on my crochet: slowly but surely I’m moving in the right direction. I’m adapting a pattern for this last bit – trickier than I thought it would be!

About thehouseofjones

Hello! Thanks for visiting, it's lovely to see you! I'm Jones, I'm 31, and I live with my husband (The Bert) and chinchilla (JB) in Gloucestershire. When I'm not at work I love crochet, sewing, cooking, baking, taking photos and dabbling in a bit of gardening and grow-your-own, and this is what I write about mainly. That and the general chit chat of life. So, take a look around, comment if you'd like, just make yourself feel at home really!
