asking for trouble

February 2022 Recap

I’m glad that February is over as it was full of storms and freezing weather. Onwards to spring! Here’s a look back at what happened in February on my blog and social media.

  • One of the few days I was able to walk along the seafront without being blown away!
  • Putting together the very fiddly nanoblock kit in my HAPiNS Happy Box
  • A little bit of embroidery for Valentine’s Day
  • Starting this Nelly Makes embroidery kit I’ve had for a while
