Crochet will live on ...

The girls dutifully turned up for their second session last night - and excitement or excitements, we sat in the Summer House!  How fab.
Both girls had managed to turn round on themselves and were doing rounds in reverse but it wasn't too noticeable so with a little bit of remedial work they were off and on their way again.

Harriet is making a blanket in one big round with some unusual colours which really work well.  How proud does she look, bless her!

Rachel is going for a checkerboard approach with lots of big grannies and is in danger of poking her eye out with the hook if she gets much closer to her work!  Not easy working in a dark colour though.

Two natural born crafters are in the making here as they already have lots of thoughts tumbling around about what they want to make next, crochet, patchwork - looks like the competition at the boot sales and charity shops is increasing :)

I'm still working on my bright stripey blanket but have used up all my colours now so will have to take a break whilst I wait for more to arrive. 

 No matter, two weeks off work now so plenty of time to let my creativity run wild. 
 Ooooh, I am so excited about being off work!  Can't remember the last time I had two consecutive weeks off.

Deb had commented on my crochet flower a while back so I will try and post some instructions that make sense (since I kind of made it up as I went along).

It may be grey and overcast but these lillies have continued to thrive, struggling their way up through the soil to give a wonderful display and scent outside my back door.  Aren't bulbs amazing?

Happy Weekend!
