February was a month with some lovely sunny days to enjoy a walk and coffee on the go.
February was a month with lots of cold and wet days, perfect for staying inside to read and crochet and watch TV.
I read 5 books, all by authors I had enjoyed before. Alternating crime mysteries with women adventuring into the unknown.
Tired of standing looking at shelves of books with no idea of what to pick, I got organised and set up notes on authors that I have enjoyed with a list of their works that I have already read or got on my shelf waiting. I also added some from lists of prize winners, best books etc. All of these notes are on Evernote so that I can read them on my phone when I am faced by shelves of books but I can also update it on my desktop.
On the crochet front my on-going project was a striped, small blanket – finished now. At the start of the month I made an amigurumi weeping angel (Dr Who character). In the last week I started experimenting with multi-colour spirals. First 2 stripes, then 3 then 4 stripes then 6. I’m thinking about creating a big sun inspired mandala to hang up instead of my winter wreath. At the moment I’m thinking the 2 colours on the right but with more stripes, maybe even 12.
February was also a month of great light

and beautiful soft sunsets
