Not very good at this blogging lark! Have got all behind! will attempt to catch up.
The last couple of days of the holiday were rainy so decided to stay in and work on some crafts. Following the success of the purple flowers I decided to do some in the pink mohair wool that I bought the other day. As this wool was thinner than the purple I used it double and followed the same pattern. The resulting flower was OK but I felt it should be bigger so I added more stitches and tried again, Better but still not full enough so I added yet more stitches and the result is on the left.
Thought I would have a change from crochet and do some sewing. I brought an assortment of pretty fabrics with to make some little hearts and birds to hang from a garland. I thought people could select which ones they wanted and make up their own design. I have two colour schemes, red and pink. I made some patterns in paper and card and cut out some in each fabric. I managed to finish 6 of the red ones and there are plenty more cut out and ready to sew.
