World Cup Crochet
hope you had a great weekend,despite the disappointing football result.
The BM family spent Sunday afternoon round at our friends ,to watch the match and have a BBQ.
I'm not much of a football fan so at the last minute I decided to be brave and take a bag of crochet supplies.This is what I made during the match (and post match postmortem).......
I couldn't take my granny stripe as it was too flippin' hot to sit with anything over my knees,so I decided to start a couple of cushion covers in Cath Kidston colours.I'm using Lucy's summer garden square again as I love this little motif.
I'm so glad I decide to take it along.If I had to sit for a couple of hours pretending to be interested in the football I would have been so frustrated at wasting creative time!!
Sorry to all you footy fans.
Changing the subject a little ,I had a nice surprise in the post on Saturday....
A Thank you card from my lovely bloggy friend Sue.
Back in January this amazing Lady had the idea to use the crafty blog community to start a charity project.
The idea was simple but brilliant.Anyone can crochet (or Knit ) 6" squares and send them to her.She then crochets them together to make blankets for the elderly.
It's such a good cause and making them is great fun. I've only sent 8 squares myself,here are six of them ( forgot to take a pic of the other 2 )........
I mentioned these in my second ever blog post back in march .Sue became my first ever follower, and commenter, as well as giving me technical advise about blogging when I was struggling. So THANK YOU SUE ,you've done so much for ME.
So far Sue has made 15 Blankets,and she's still not fed up so if you want to join in here's the link.
The Picture at the top of this post is a little posy I picked from my garden.Some Lavender,alchemilla and the first of my sweet peas.The have such a strong ,beautiful scent,I wish we had smelly-net!!
Whilst out walking this morning ( before it got too hot to venture out!) I snapped some beautiful Roses which are at their best right now...........
And in my own garden a lovely iris (wonder how long this will last with my three boys kicking a football in the garden,at every opportunity.).........
It was also reassuring to see some busy bees.......
Right oh ,that seems a bit of a mixed up post but I've got to get busy myself now so ill say bye for now. Have a great week
