Last night I couldn’t sleep. I’ve never been a great sleeper, but since my daughter was born two and a half years ago, my old friend insomnia hasn’t been around much. Physical exhaustion has won the day mostly. But last night I couldn’t switch off. All I could think about were the mounting crochet projects that I have on the go, plus a mass of life business.
I’m in the process of applying for permanent residency here in the Netherlands, and I have to find the time to fit in a trip to Amsterdam to have my photo taken and to be fingerprinted (that’s new). Plus a host of my actual career projects that have to be done all at once and some semblance of a social life that I need to keep going – If I don’t, I’ll be out of friends! There’s only so long you can say “I’m so sorry, I’m just too busy!” before people stop believing you.
So needless to say, last night I was awake with my brain racing and trying to process everything that’s going on in my life while I was frantically adding items to my Must Do list. In and in an attempt to distract myself, I did what any social media freak would do, I checked Facebook, Instagram and then Pinterest. I had quite a few Pinterest alerts to check and was gobsmacked when I saw that one of my pins had been repinned 999 times!

999 repins?! This pin just can't stop giving. I made this snuggle ages and ages ago from a Free(!) pattern by @dendennis and #Pinterest clearly loves it. So does my website stats, I have to tell you! Go pin it yourself, and follow me while you're at it. I have great taste 😉 http://pinterest.com/missneriss #croche #crochet #craftymama #haken #snuggle #pinterestaddict #igcrochet #amigurumi
I’ve talked about this pin before, back when it had around 200 repins and I was amazed at that number, but now this morning it has cracked 1000 repins, and just won’t stop!
I have a few pins that I see getting a lot of (P)interest daily, including
Incidentally, I’ve never made this monkey. I just pinned it because I thought it was so cute.
The Dickie Birds are also doing well:
Ok, now I’ll shut up about Pinterest, sign off and go start work for the day. That To Do list won’t do itself!
Oh, and PS. If you want to pin the Elephant Snuggle yourself, you can:
