After months apart Dennis is finally back in Hamburg! WOOOOOOOPWOOOOOOP!! It's so amazing to have him home. I was really missing him a lot!

I took the weekend off from work so we could spend some time together and we have really had a lovely weekend here in Christmassy Hamburg.
We spent our time together talking non stop and catching up on everything that has happened over the past months apart!
We walked around town and ate lots of yummy food from the amazing Christmas markets and both ended up treating ourselves to the new iphone 4S. I was a little unsure of buying a new phone but decided it could be an early Christmas present and I have to be honest......I LOVE IT!

As well as a spot of shopping we had our usual conversations about all of our current projects and 'works in progress'. It turns out we have both been super busy and had lots of projects to share and many ideas to talk about with each other.

Dennis is as 'CRAFTY' as I am. It was actually Dennis that first taught me to crochet, this time last year. He has made so many lovely projects and together we are a bit of a crochet force to be reckoned with;-) Would you like to see some of his creations?


How gorgeous are all of these projects! He always inspires me with everything that he makes and it really isn't unusual for him to start a project only for me to follow in suit shortly after.

Dennis also had a blog, but due to working away from home he found it hard to maintain and keep working on.
It really was a shame as Dennis always has wonderful ideas and many lovely things to share. Bearing this in mind I proposed to Dennis that he comes and joins my blog. We spoke about it and decided that nothing would work better than us making a joint effort of "according to Matt'. He could work on it along side me whilst he is home and when he is away at work I will hold down the fort.

For those of you who haven't met Dennis yet, here he is.......

He's going to be a familiar face around here at 'According to Matt'.
So a big welcome to you Dennis! I'm so looking forward to sharing this crafty adventure with you and hope all of our lovely readers are as excited as I am.

There will be lots more coming very soon from the two of us!!!

and (from now on) Dennis xx
