Yesterday I found this pattern for a crochet flower so tried it out with some lilac/white wool I had. Then using some crochet cotton I made a tiny one and attached it -
Then I wondered how I was going to use it - and thought it would look nice on a baby girl's hat - so went ahead and made one. It is not often that I make the accent first and then the item!
Here are a couple of new designs I am going to be using for my jewellery this year -
Will be using them for all sorts of things - rings, bracelets, necklaces etc. Really enjoy making them. It is strange as I thought I wouldn't like working with tiny seed beads but I actually find it quite therapeutic.
Today I was supposed to be taking son back to Aberdeen but due to the horrendous winds, have decided that we will go tomorrow - too scared to risk it today! Having said that, it has calmed down a bit here from what it was first thing, but going by the weather forecast I think the worst winds have moved to the north east which is the direction we would be going. So it looks like I maybe able to squeeze in another day's crafting!
Hoping for a calmer day tomorrow!
ps Happy birthday to my dad who is 80 today!
