I Did My Best


It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you I am closing my little pink yarn shop with immediate effect.  I have done my very best in circumstances which have personally devastated me but I simply cannot sustain it financially or emotionally any more.  So much has changed since I signed the lease exactly one year ago.

I will be gradually listing all of my stock in my Etsy shop over the next couple of weeks if you're interested.

The time has also come for me to disappear from here indefinitely.  This hasn't been an easy decision to make as this space has been so incredibly important to me for the last seven years but I now need to let go and find my way through the next stage of my life's journey in relative anonymity.  I have decided to leave my blog up so my crochet tutorials and patterns will still be available for anyone who would like to use them.  There are also some very happy memories documented here which are very precious to me.

I have, however, deleted my Instagram account.  I will be deleting my Facebook page this afternoon.  Social media has caused me quite a lot of distress recently and I'm desperate for a break.

I've often felt a bit of a fraud and have regularly wondered what you've seen in me!  I'm just a slightly quirky 45 year old woman who speaks from her heart, makes frequent mistakes, and loves colour.  I promise I've always meant well though.  Your kindness and support have helped me through both happy and sad times and have enriched my life more than you'll ever know.  Take care of your little selves, won't you?

Thank you so much for being my friends.

Happy hooking.

Much love,

Heather

  1. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear this. Your shop is an absolute delight and a little haven in a big city. It can't have been an easy decision, but you have had an incredible year to deal with in so many ways. You have battled and fought and come out shining. I'll be thinking of you as you wend your way through your next adventure, whatever that may be. Much love x

  11. I am so sad to read this. I have loved reading your blog and will miss it. You are not a fraud and the reason we've loved you is because you're real, like us. We all feel like a fraud from time to time I think because you pretend to be or to be feeling what you are not. I hope the next part of your journey is a truly happy one. ��

  19. Dear Heather, I'm sorry to ready this and understand many of your feelings. Aftern hard work it's very sad to close the shop but doing our best is not always enough. We had a beautiful craft, jewelry shop for one summer season but couldn't continue because of the economical situation in Greece and Europe. Lately I have been thinking also often about blogging. It doesn't give me anymore the joy it used to be. For me it's the only way to connect with quilters but blogland starts to be too quiet. You are brave to make the decision to step out from the social media which has become ouver whelming.
    I wish you all the best! x Teje

  20. We all feel like frauds in one way or another...I do every time I make a painting. Just our fears talking to us. To me you are wonderful and brave, and very talented. I will miss your beautiful colors in social media but I don't blame you a bit. I'm a bit tired of it all myself.

  22. So sorry to read this. I am just starting out and you and a few other bloggers have inspired me. Best of luck for the future. Xx

  23. Heather,
    I only found your blog around the time you were opening your shop, but I've quietly followed along for the past year. I so admire you for having the gumption to open your own shop, and even though it didn't work out as planned, you should pat yourself on the back for accomplishing what so many others only dream of! If your charming shop were near to me, I would have been a regular visitor. I wish you all the best and thank you for inspiring us all!

  25. Oh, I'm so sad to hear this news! I haven't been reading your blog for very long, but it is such a delight! I do understand your plan of action to some small degree. There was a point in time when I had to get off Facebook (I'm still off actually & it's quite freeing still) and I just recently closed a blog that I had written for a few years. I felt like there was some sort of baggage attached to it pulling me down associated with another part of my life I'd just as soon forget. So I started a brand new craft blog. It's such a nice fresh start. ๐Ÿ˜Š I'm sure you'll soon find some new endeavors that will be a part of this new chapter in your life which won't have been tainted by anything from earlier chapters. Still you will be missed. Maybe someday you'll find your way back to us. ♡

    Much love,
    Michelle

  29. Its so very hard to leave social media, despite the negatives, so I commend you. Your well-being is paramount. I found your blog two years ago when I first learned to crochet. I loved your colors and your clean simple photography and the glimpse into another country. I will definitely miss your posts. I wish you health and happiness and peace of mind in this new chapter of your life! I don't really know what trials you are facing right now but my life turned completely around 12 years ago when I was 38. While all the changes were terrifying, I came thru it better than I expected and am happier than I ever thought possible! You've got this!

    I'm very sorry and sad to hear this, your shop is so lovely. As someone who loves grey you opened my eyes to the possibilities of pink!! You were so lovely and encouraging to my son who bought some wool from you to knit a scarf and hat (incidentally he shares a birthday with your son). I hope everything works out for you, you deserve to be happy and successful.
    Take care

    I'm so sorry you have decided to step away from blood land and social media but I do understand it. I wish phones weren't invented sometimes as I'm sick of seeing the top of my husbands head as he stares at his phone for so long. Good for you my dear. Take a deep breath and go..... wishing you all the very best in the future I will definitely miss your presence here xxx

  40. Heather, I am so sad to read, and yet....I feel you are doing right by yourself in all this. Putting your own self first takes courage and you are doing yourself proud with that. You have given our online creative community so much good over the years, such beauty, honesty and humour and I shall miss you rather dreadfully I'm afraid. Please don't drop off the face of the earth though my lovely - you know where I am, and I would be so sad to lose you altogether. With oodles of love, Lxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  41. I am so sorry that you have had to close your gorgeous shop. It looked so lovely in the photos and if I didn't live on the other side of the world I would have visited. Missed my opportunity now. I think you are far too hard on yourself, you come across as a very genuine, sweet and happy person. I do hope that things pick up for you and that we hear from you again in the future. As for social media, I am sorry you have had trouble, I avoid it as much as I can. All the very best to you and your family, and hope this unfortunate time is soon a distant memory. Good luck!

  46. I am so very sorry to read this but I hope that this respite will bring the peace and joy you are searching for. One day, hopefully, that call to rejoin this little piece of the world will come to you and just know that we will be waiting... because that is what friends do. You do you, we'll wait.

  47. I understand the need for you to be able to go and find your way on your own without accountability to a closed part of your life. Blessings to you as you open the gate and begin the walk down a new path - the hardest steps are those first ones, but look ahead, I wonder what is just around that bend there - the one with the beautiful pink roses and heavenly fragrance ...... thankyou, and enjoy your journey

    You are not a fraud, just a kind and talented lady with lots of friends/fans who I know wish you well in the next part of your journey - myself included.
    I have been in a few 'dark' places emotionally over the past few years and I know and understand the needing to to 'escape'.
    I hope that, whenever you feel ready, you will return to social media in some way. Until then I wish you well. Much love being sent xxx

  53. Oh no Heather, I am really sorry to hear the news. You are certainly going to be missed. I thought you were incredibly brave to open your shop but what you are doing now is even braver. I wish you all the very best for the future, it has always been an absolute pleasure to read your blog and to get to know you virtually. Wish I had been able to meet you in person.

  54. Oh :(

    I just hope that you are ok. Please remember that you are NOT a fraud.
    People who make nasty comments should just go back into their holes and leave decent people alone - their nastiness is a reflection of THEMselves NOT the person they are abusing.
    I hope that you have as many supportive good friends in the real world as you do in this virtual one and that you can find the peace, strength and happiness you need.

  58. Hello. I have just began reading your blogs. They are wonderful! It is with much sadness for whatever you are going through, that your are stopping. About 6 years ago I had a brick and mortar scrapbook store. Unfortunately, the econmy here in the USA was bad, and I quit my business. It took a long time to feel "right" with my decision to close. Now, I sell on etsy. Not much, but it's fun. I can make what I want, if it sells eventually, it does. I wish you well. I hope you are not ill. If you are, you are wise to take care of yourself. Take care. Stay positive, especially about what you have accomplished! It was hard work for sure!! You must be proud of yourself that you were able to maintain your business, for as long as you did! May your days ahead be whatever you need them to be. Peaceful and happiness will come your way, again! May God bless you and watch over you!

  70. Oh how sad; I've come late to your blog and love it so much. But sometimes we have to step away from things in order to start to make things better. You have a passion for colour, all things woolly and creating. If stepping away now will allow you to take a breath and get things sorted then it's the right (but hard) decision. I sincerely believe you will be back when the time comes and 'we' will be here with a warm welcome. Take care and be happy x

Look back with happiness and remember how happy you made a bunch of quirky, only slightly older than you (��) people. May blessings rain upon you!

  84. Heather, i feel sorry for the decision of the shop. I often say to my boyfriend: "There is a shop in Leicester...that is so lovely...my dream is to have one like that". I also love to read this blog and all your amazing pictures and colours. I don't believe when you say you're a fraud...we more or less know you're crossing obstacles, but the most important thing is: you can still see the beauty of things! This is a lesson, it's a very inspiring issue to me! I respect your decisions and hope, deep in my heart, you find the best ways for you :) a big hug from Brazil.

  86. I have often wondered how you wonderful yarnie designers have the gumption to put yourselves out there (whether through your work, patterns, etc) and leave yourselves wide open to some very mean spirited people. Luckily, there are more wonderful people than meanies. I admire you and your blog and pictures of your shop make me smile. I've only just found you and now you're going away. I have enjoyed reading through your past blog posts. Thank you for the peek into your sweet pink life. Love the name Pink Milk. Yummy! Take good care of yourself. Be kind to yourself. Tomorrow is another day and, hopefully, the sun will come out for you. Jane

  96. Hello Heather ~
    I found myself thinking of you, & thought I would pop by. I'm happy to have come across you & your little shop. I want you to know that you've touched my life by letting me have a small peek into yours. My wish is that you find whatever makes you happy & that we may again cross paths. I will fondly & often remember you when wearing the socks I made with yarn you sent from your shop & the precious cake progress keepers ~ I've still got your card! You will be missed, but I thank you for the soft pink light that you brought into my life ~
    Kindest Regards,
    Joanne

  97. Hey H x I had five minutes to think and thought of you. Couldn't find you on IG so ended up here. I'm sorry to hear things have been so shit. 2016 was fucking horrendous all round I think. Things even more tits up here but oh well I guess I'm still breathing. (Choosing to leave the swear words in because ya know, it's real, it's me and well ya get me). I have no idea what life has dealt you and I'm sorry but just wanted to say hello, goodbye and thanks for being a virtual friend over the years who truly just accepted me, warts and all. And there's been a lot of warts. I'm not everyone's cup of tea and I get that and I may put my foot in it sometimes but you have always treated me non judgmentally as a virtual friend not as part of a crowd of 'stuff'. Hope that makes cryptic sense. Wishing you good health and happiness as you move forward in your life. Much love and goodbye waves, Jo x x x

  99. I'm just popping my head in your door to wave and tell you I miss you very much. Hope that life is treating you gently and that the two months since you wrote this post have been kind.
    You have not been forgotten my lovely, you left rather a big gap behind when you gently closed your door.
    Much love and a squishy hug too xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
