I took these little lovelies round to a dear friend to fill her new Summer house with their fabulous scent
and I picked these to cheer up my own windowsill
I did manage to complete on cushion last week - felt shamed into it as the plumber thinks I've got a cushion fetish as he couldn't believe how many cushion pads were lying about the place!
Now then, be prepared because I have saved the best until last.... my Mum made this for me from a very old pattern. It was Mum who taught my sister and I to crochet and knit (and my brother too!) many moons ago and she gave us a refresher tutorial last year and there's no stopping us now. She likes to hide her light under a bushel and thinks she's not creative but blimey, this takes some patience! Isn't it wonderful?
I need to put some material behind it but that's no problem since she's done it all properly with a zip - no short cuts for Mum! It looks very at home, don't you think? She's on a roll with them and Anne will be next in line.
I might have to abandon the crochet for a while (pah! not likely) as my youngest two sons were laughing at me - saying I should get out more and I quote: "just look at this place, Mum. It's turning into one big knitted/crocheted thing!" Looking around they may have a point - I'll give you a tour later on in the week.
But how could I be mad at these handsome chaps?
He looks comfy enough amongst the crochet, if you ask me!
Prom night for the 'baby' of the family!
Maybe I'll have a quilt to show you too if I can summon up some energy from somewhere - anyone got any spare?
