point + shot | long weekend

It has been a super productive long weekend here. I've spent most of the three day break writing and editing mid semester reports. After finishing a report, I rewarded myself by making a square for the simple granny blanket. There was a very good ratio of reports written to squares made this weekend! I started joining the squares together and it is really starting to look like a blanket now. Love this. Naturally, I did most of the report writing and crocheting in my pajamas in front of the fire. I am yet to find a way to write school reports that doesn't involved my pajamas, they seriously have to be the most comfiest sitting down clothes ever!

Was it a long weekend where you were? How did you spend it?

right now

Winter has really set in down here in Melbourne. The mornings are cold and icy. The days are long and cold and and really wet. Layers are being worn at every opportunity. Boots and stockings are on on high rotations. The fire is burning day and night.

I am right in the middle of writing reports and I have declared the Queens Birthday long weekend, the report writing long weekend. They will be finished.

I am finding a few minutes here and there to crochet a few more squares for this blanket and I am dreaming about learning this stitch to make this scarf

I am pinning bits and pieces over here and really hoping to find my blogging mojo really soon. 

Are things slowing down for winter in your corner of the world or are they about to get busy?
