Hi there everyone, I hope Wednesday morning finds you all in good spirits. You'll be pleased to know the chocolate fudge cake was a great success but there's only so much you can eat before you start feeling VERY SICK!
Well, progress has definitely been made in the wonderful world of crochet. Spurred on by Little Harriet's contribution in Handmade Monday this week I decided to attempt her You tube recommendation for crocheted flowers, thanks Harriet for the link. This was my attempt.....
Now you have to imagine the scene in my empty houseold upon completing the last stitch, "I can do flowers!!" I squealed and virtually cartwheeled across the living room floor, much to the bemusement of my two cats.
Of course then I thought I was ready for a bigger challenge. I'm beginning to get to grips with crochet terminology, so I took a deep breath and ventured over to Attic 24 to see what she could tempt me with. I was spoiled for choice, but as I had only just started my 'flower phase' I thought I'd try one of her wonderful tutorials 'Crochet flowers and leaves'.
This elicited an even bigger squeal from my lips, as after much furrowing of brow and sticking out of tongue I managed to complete this cute flower. The eagle eyed amongst you will spot there are no leaves, well no, but hey do you know what, I can do flowers, I don't care!
The wool was far too thick for the hook I was using but needs must, it was all I had and my enthusiasm was more than enough to cope with this minor irritation, but I do hear the wool shops a-calling.
What have you been up to today?
