A glimpse into my world

A Glimpse into your world. Show us the things you love that makes your world spin or things about your world that make you delirious with joy.

I love nature, I love photography… bring the two together and the joy doubles 🙂 Capturing the moment, getting eyes in focus, recording the seasons, being in awe of the beauty all around me, it is definitely a joyful thing.

And of course a glimpse into my world wouldn’t be complete without some crochet too! Crochet brings a different kind of joy, a slow contentment, a sense of wonder at the transformation from ball of yarn to garment or blanket, and the pleasure of wearing (or gifting) the results.

Finished Diamonds Not Pearls jumper … but with a lot of ends to sew in still! Will do shots of me actually wearing it when the ends are done.
The beginnings of a new project which involves a double ended circular crochet hook, and 2 balls of yarn at once! It’s Tunisian crochet in the round, very new to me.

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. Suzy, the thing I loved the most about your post were its vivid colours, the natural greens dazzled me and the picture of the insects forming a heart was a winner. Also looking at your crocheted items, I cannot help but admire your skill with the hook. Many years ago, I crocheted a blanket and I enjoyed the activity. I’m inspired to pick it up again. Wonderful post, Suzy. Thank you for sharing it with us.
