Harriet is totally hooked, getting very adventurous to the point where I need to have a go at the pattern first to see if I can help her! I must confess that I am not that good at following patterns (or recipes as H likes to call them) as Lynne will attest following my union jack tutorial debacle I'm more of a visual/have a go learner but I'll have to get better otherwise the girls will be leaving me in the dust and we'll have to rename the granny square a 'girlie square'!
Much tea and chocolate required to aid the concentration (for the girls) - me, I needed a glass of wine as Rachel seemed intent on crocheting backwards for a while, bless. She's got the hang of it now though and will have a blanket before long no doubt since she does have wool and 'sticks' at home for making her links and going down the rabbit hole with:) Don't ask! Where there's a will there's a way x
Harriet's also quiet smitten with patchworking - and look at this for her first attempt!
A very justifiably proud young lady!
Rachel Number 1 is now totally torn - she's got a granny square patchwork blanket on the go, is making a crochet cardi - her own design in single trebles but now she wants to make slippers, quilts, hats, ties, the list goes on -
there'll be no stopping her. If only there were more hours in the day!
Watch out ladies - the young competition is hot on our heels.
The crafts will live on. Yippeeeee!
Thank you to all you lovelies who have left me comments - I get a huge boost knowing you've stopped by and appreciate your every word.
It's raining, chilly, getting dark early ...
that must mean it's soup weather - zippitydoodah - our favourite!
