    The last day of the Easter weekend has ended up being a busy one! As well as some dyeing I’m packing up some orders🙌Really hoping to get some time later to work on this little pram blanket for the #vintagemal2019 as I had a yarn delivery last week from @knittingnetwork 😍 I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend whatever you’ve been up to.

    How are you spending your Easter weekend? We visited with my family at my parent’s place yesterday, and we’re heading to hubby’s parents today.

🙌 for car crochet time! I almost forget my yarn yesterday... the horrors!! 😱 Can you even imagine being a passenger in a car and not having your yarn with you? 😂
.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend no matter how you’re spending it! ❤️❤️❤️

    Happy Easter!
.

Just look at this little cutie 🐣🐤🐥
.
.
The chicks are 2 weeks old today! & I'm struggling to tell the apart now they have their brown wing feather! 
It's always been.....
The big one - first born.
The twins - not from the same egg, just hatched at the same time!
The one that couldn't stand up! - this is the one that would act pissed! & kept falling on its back when it tried to stand up.  I had to take this one out of the incubator early, I wrapped it in a towel and sat it on a hot water bottle to keep warm, all whilst holding it the right way up! Until it no longer wanted to fall backwards.
The one I hatched - this one part hatched, but didn't have the strength to completely hatch on its own! I could see it breathing,  stretching the egg open & it even chirped back at me, when I chirped to it through the incubator!!! All of this for 30 hours! Too long for a chick to hatch, so I stepped in and broke the rest of the shell off around it.  It laid exhausted on its side for a few minutes, shaking! I laid it on it's front & it gained enough strength to stand & walk, I say walk...it's legs seemed out of line, (probably the reason it couldn't push the shell open) it hobbled about, but the other chicks soon welcomed it to their broader box.  Now it walks, runs & attempts to fly just like the others! .
.
Give yourself an Easter egg if you made it this far 🍫🥚! .

    Good evening! 🌞🌸 I’m about to start a new crochet project! And I’ve also just shared some behind the scenes of my yarn storage if you fancy a nosy on my stories 😆🙈 But I thought I’d share my nice tidy kitchen on the old grid instead of my messy yarn cupboard 😂 I haven’t shared this view before but I’m loving the lighter evenings with the sun shining in on this scene! What have you all been up to today? I had a bit of a rest day before more Easter hunt antics tomorrow! 💕🥳🍫🐣🧺🐰 #lottieandalberthome

    I finally finished the @lottieandalbert CAL from earlier in the year! Whoop whoop! Here is the squishy cushion cover  in situ. With three strands of @stylecraftyarns and an 8mm hook... it turned out just as I had hoped... especially in that early morning light. It feels like we are finally starting to turn a corner with the decorating/building work! .
.
Ps. I love this whale... his expression cracks me up - he has the sleep deprived/exhausted/exasperated look to perfection! .

    Eeeep my little granny baby blanket is finished 💛 (apart from the border and the million ends to weave in 😂💁🏻‍♀️ but let’s not split hairs) I love the way the single crochet top join makes it look like little tiles, what do you reckon?
I’ve also treated myself (the baby) to this gorgeous @mailegworld panda 🐼 My favourite bear when I was little was a yellow cloth bear called Geoffrey 😆 I won’t subject you to a picture of what he looks like now, but this fur-less cloth panda reminded me so much of him, I had to have him! Do you still have your favourite childhood toy?! ☺️🐼 #lottieandalbert

    Ahhh the mighty potato 🥔, father of chips, vodka and ... potato printing! 😆🍟🍸 I’ve just added a free Scandi playtent tutorial to my blog, showing how I updated this @hobbycrafthq playtent✨. I also created some half  moon crochet bunting (swipe to see!), if anyone would be interested in a free pattern for that too? ✨link in bio✨
Now, I’d like to either convince my kids to play in there for the rest of the Easter holidays, or you may find me in there with some of the aforementioned potato products 🍟🍸🍟🍸🥳😂 #lottieandalbert 
This playtent and the fabric paints were kindly gifted to my by @hobbycrafthq 💛

🙋‍♀️ if you love working with hand dyed yarn!
😍 if you haven’t used hand dyed before.
.
There’s just something so satisfying about watching these specks and streaks of colour work into stitches.
.
I think a lot of us crocheters seem to shy away from hand dyed yarn? It seems to be much more popular in the knitting community? I’m curious if this is actually true? Are you a crocheter or knitter? And do you use hand dyed yarn?
.
I personally love using hand dyed, but I also think there’s nothing wrong with a good acrylic yarn for certain projects! Although when I use sock weight yarn for crocheted tops, I haven’t really found a nice substitute for the hand dyed. Even for summer tank tops, I love using merino.
.
(Yarn dyed by me, I’ve been saving this skein. 😊

    Want to know something terrible?
.
The reason why I never wrote up the pattern for this top or any other crochet garment... is that I was too self conscious to photograph myself in it and post it all over the internet.
.
I’ve been super self conscious about my body for years now. I’ve been really unhappy with my weight and how my clothes fit. I don’t think it really has to do with my size, it’s more that the size I am doesn’t match with the image I have in my head? So every time I see a candid photo of myself I can’t help but criticize my arms, my legs, my waist... etc.
.
I’m working really hard on being kinder to myself. To stop criticizing myself. And I’ve been working really hard since January to lose weight.
.
I’m officially down 22lbs. I feel like when I look in the mirror or see myself in a photo, I look more like “me”. I have more weight I’d like to lose, but even more then that I need to work on loving my body no matter how it looks. I’m a work in progress.
.
Have you ever not done something and regretted it because you’ve been too self conscious? I feel like I really need to kick that fear in the butt and just do what I want. 💪
.
Swipe 👉 to see photos of me from this fall, I have no idea if you can see a difference, but I can, it’s small but I can see it. 😊❤️
