The Happy Ever Afterlife of Rosie Potter (RIP) by Kate Winter

The Beach Cafe by Lucy Diamond

Littlest Pet Shop
Anime, English version
(Finished season 2 of this cute series!)

Holby City
Medical drama, English
(An ok episode this week...)

Winx: Season 6
Magical girl anime, English version
(In the name of research I've watched the 1st episode at least 4 times in a row...will explain why in a post soon!)

Music idol anime, Japanese version
(A highly likeable new to me show which is rather funny!)

Once Upon A Time
REWATCH! - Fantasy drama, English version
(Almost perfect show which has me as captivated as the first time I saw it. I'm thrilled to be watching it again!)

Craft, games and more

...I've actually barely played on Littlest Pet Shop. There hasn't been an update for months, which is odd considering how the 10E/10E sister games (if that's the right expression) from Gameloft Ice Age Village and My Little Pony have regular major updates. I'm tired of the lack of new content.

Winx Fairy school is the opposite! There's always several quests to embark on, and while some may be put off by the repetitive nature of waiting for flowers to grow, skills to be learnt, and potions to brew, it manages to be awesome and squee-worthy just by being about my favourite anime fairies! 

On the needle this week has been a secret project I can't show you, as well as a bit of progress on the cute owl kit present I can show you. 


Not as much progress as I'd like but I had made the branch too long on the left side so had to unpick and redo the yellow leaf and some of the branch.

Crochet wise I made these pinky-purpley coasters for a friend who loved them and said her young daughter would love poking her fingers through the holes. I left her with the promise if she needs replacements she can have them! 


I've started another set of coasters in a thicker yarn with neutral colours which fits the style of that particular friend. I kind of need to finish them by Monday, but they are quick to make.


Aside from spending an insane amount of time experimenting, I've started the blanket I'm entering in the Deramores 2015 blog competition. I'm keeping the design under wraps until it's complete, but I will take pics as the current scattering of granny squares evolve into stacks!
