20/52 year of happy

Four things from my week that put a smile on my face.

1. I received some new shade cards from some yarn companies this week, and have spent a long time dreaming of all the new yarn I'd like to stock in my little shop. It is a surprising amount of fun putting together a yarn order!
2. I really like how good the colours look in rainbow formation, these are a range of 4ply cotton and I love all the colour!
3. I have splurged on a couple of magazines this week and I was lucky enough to receive the Simply Crochet mag in the mail this week, sent all the way from the UK from the lovely MemeRose, thank you so much it made my day!  I have spent some very lazy hours sitting curled up by the fire reading these, happy days!
4. I have been persevering with my quest to conquer fudge making, and I have to say, I thing I have nailed it this week with this chocolate coconut fudge !  It might not look that impressive, but it was Very addictive and sooooo good.  I will post this recipe and see if you agree 
( be warned, totally impossible to stop at one piece!).  These are the last two pieces and they were soon gobbled up!  My sweet tooth was very pleased.

What's been making you smile this week?


  1. I love a magazine by the fire. Your fudge looks great to me :)
