The House Cup
Eskimimi has created a house system for Knitting & Crochet Blog Week inspired by Harry Potter. I remember having houses in every school I attended and so do my children except we didn't get to choose—the house was assigned upon entry to school. No correspondence will be entered into.
It feels a bit weird to have the privilege of choosing a house to represent me for the purpose of this week. The house descriptions are here: http://www.eskimimimakes.com/2013/04/knitting-and-crochet-blog-week-2013.html and you can view the results of a poll showing the numbers of blog week participants in each house if you visit http://www.eskimimimakes.com/2013/04/choose-your-house-re-poll-is-in-order.html and click in the sidebar survey gadget.

Autumn is my favourite season.
Each year my ornamental pear tree blesses me with the most beautiful colours.
In just 24 hours, fresh leaf fall (above) transforms my garden to a vivid palette of inspiration.
The result is a cosy crocheted colour scheme to warm my winter days.

I am deciding whether to participate in Eskimimi's 4th Annual Knitting and Crochet Blog Week.
Thanks to Kathryn from Crochet Concupiscence for spreading the news about this event.

Any professional musician or entertainer will advise that the key to a polished performance is preparation. Whether it is live on stage or in the recording studio, rehearsals are essential.
The practical experience of rehearsing allows artists to experiment, practise new techniques, consolidate skills and organise their plans. A rehearsal is often the only way to identify potential problems and iron them out–I know I would rather discover a hitch at rehearsal than during the main performance.
As it is for musicians, so it is for crocheters.

I've been away from the computer for a little while because of busily trying to complete a particular project and I am disappointed that I have missed my deadline to have it finished.
