change, goodbye for now

A change is as good as a holiday…

Those of you who still read this blog (am I deluding myself in thinking that anyone does?) would have noticed the distinct lack of updates these days. I’m really sorry about that. It’s not that I haven’t thought about updating it – I have. And it’s not that I haven’t produced any new crafted items to show off – I have. The main problem is, and I’ll be honest here, is that I don’t really like this blog any more. It started as a purely crochet blog, but as I’ve moved onto other crafts (still crocheting, mind you) it’s started to be a bit all-over-the-place, and I don’t like that. It’s not just that, though. I need a change. A change of name (I already have a new one in mind, but it’s a secret for now), a change of domain, maybe even a change of blogging platform. And definitely a change of banner. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while, but ultimately I’ve decided to wait until I get to the USA to implement my changes. I want to put a lot of time and effort into my new blog, and that’s something I wouldn’t be able to do now.

I want to learn some web design skills, so I’m not at the mercy of a blogging theme I don’t understand and can’t change, and I also want to improve my photography skills. What’s the point of making pretty things and taking bad photographs of them?

So please, watch this space: Once I get to the USA and get settled, I’ll redirect this blog to my brand-spanking new one! Until then, keep calm and craft on.

PS: For anyone who is concerned, I will be moving my patterns to my new blog and they will still be available there, just in a better, easier-to-find format.
