Springtime Crochet wreath

Just wanted to share my latest crochet project with you . Earlier this week lucy posted her Springtime wreath and I wanted to make one right away!

The nice thing about crochet ( and Knitting ~ but I'm not a good knitter )is that it is such a portable unintrusive craft . By unintrusive I mean it doesn't need much equipment or space.

I see loads of great fabric projects on t'internet but I just don't seem to be able to find the time to set up one of my three sewing machines ( don't ask !!!!!!!!) and anyway the only place to put it in our house is the dining room table which is always in demand for homework, drawing, cutting and sticking (not to mention meals )

Thank goodness for crochet !! I can walk around the house,with a ball or two of wool and a hook , and create my latest project whilst bathing the little people or helping with spellings.....
When the latest video game gets too much I can sneak upstairs and crochet in bed :0)
So it only took a couple of days to make this......

I'm so pleased how this turned out ,just right for spring . I did different flowers to the original (still Lucy's pattern ) and they ended up looking a lot like primulas, which are everywhere at the moment and so pretty they are too !!!!

The weather is definitely warming up here . Hurray....and the days are lengthening.
Here is a lovely sunset I caught about 6 pm last week
See you soon

  1. Hell Jacquie!
    How lovely that you've started up a blog!I love your photos on Flickr!I love your little wreath too, it's so sweet!I'm more of a knitter myself. I still find it hard to get the tension in crochet!
    I see you are from the Midlands, so am I! Erdington in Birmingham. I moved to Oxfordshire nearly 12 years ago!

  2. I meant Hello Jacquie, not Hell Jacquie! Whoops!

  3. Certainly get the dining table/sewing machine saga! I have it myself which is why mine spends a lot of time gathering dust!!!

  4. Hi Jacquie!! I'm new to your blog, and somewhat new to crochet (started the day after Thanksgiving 2013!). I love the wreath you made, and will add that to my long list of projects. Being as I'm new, it still seems quite daunting to finish projects such as an afghan, so hopefully in time I will get faster. I look forward to reading more on your blog.


I always love to hear from you , thank you for taking the time to leave a message.
