It was pretty exciting to have my crochet featured on the Mollie Makes blog a couple of weeks ago! I have had a girl crush of Mollie Makes for a very long time, even before i started crocheting, so it was an absolute thrill to be part of their “Meet the Makers” segment. I don’t like to show my face very often, but i wasn’t about to say no to Mollie Makes. I wish i could say that it only took one shot to get a picture i was remotely happy with, but that would be a big fat lie. You should see how many images did not make the cut! It’s kind of funny. I contemplated putting them all into a flipagram to showcase my insecurity in a rediculous slideshow, but i am too embarrassed. Needless to say, the picture below is my favourite!!

May was a mix of crochet hearts, Yummy Yarn and co, granny square blankets and spinal surgery. This year is certainly flying by, but i am really pleased that May is over. Taking my daughter to Sydney for spinal surgery was the hardest thing i have done since becoming a parent. Handing her over to doctors and nurses to open her up, insert rods and bone grafts was frightening to say the least, especially for a person who always braces themselves for the worst. This time, i couldn’t think of ‘worst case scenario’ because that included death and paralysis.
It’s quite comical looking back to the 18th, as my hubby and i were trying to fill out her admittance forms….we could barely remember our own names. I used #craftastherapy to the extreme in the lead up to the operation and during her week long hospital stay. And the whole experience gave me a new perspective on how blessed we are to have happy and healthy children. I am thrilled to report that all went well and my daughter coped with the entire adventure like a champion. I couldn’t be any prouder.
