Midweek

Feeling sad this morning listening to the news so I am trying to focus on gratitude and all the good things in the world that make me smile.
As you can see my poncho project is taking shape and I have also made a flower brooch for a wedding I am attending this weekend. The flower pattern is from Nicki Trench’s book Cute and Easy Crochet with Flowers.

Early morning…..

Woke early this morning with the challenges of a busy day at work racing through my mind. What was needed was a few minutes in the garden…quiet time just for me and of course a row of crochet. Happy and contented….

A crafty bank holiday weekend …

As always I have too many projects on the go. I have spent the weekend enjoying and adding a splash of colour to my garden, making a lovely mini tablecloth for my grandaughter’ s  bedroom, covering an old chest of draws with Decopatch and finally a new project!

Coming alive….

For once last weekend, I downed tools and ignored the household chores in favour of shopping, pottering in the garden, a family meal and of course my beloved hook and wool.
The garden is coming alive and is full of promise. I have also made good progress with my blanket, just nine more rows to go. Why do the last few rows always take so long?????
