I'm sooooo glad the sun returned today. A few dull,wet days had really got me down.
This is a little worrying as we head into Autumn (how did that happen !).My moods never used to be so linked to the weather.
On Wednesday the rain held off long enough for a meet up with friends I made in anti natal class. Our children played happily together and it was great to catch up with all their news.
I thought it would nice to do a little crochet as we sat on our picnic blankets ,so I packed my hook and yarn along with our picnic.
When it came to getting started I suddenly felt self conscious. I mentioned I had brought my crochet along. One friend made a comment about granny's house and the sound of knitting needles. My crochet stayed firmly in my bag.
It's so different with you lot.I love being creative ,it makes me happy,even on a rainy day.
Being able to share my creations ,with you like minded lovelies makes me extra happy.
Your kind comments really do mean a lot.
So whilst I was on holiday I made a little something to send to one of you,wish I could send you all something really ,but that might take some time!
Here is my finished cushion cover. The colours remind me of heather. Purple,blue,lilac and green.......
There is a cute flower in the centre,pattern from here........
And lilac spotty buttons to close.........
I'm hoping you like her .She was made as a thank you to my special bloggy friends,who understand my crocheting ways.
I also picked up this cute little seaside tin ,whilst on holiday, for you.....
If you would like a chance to give her a home ,please leave me a comment on this post.
In a couple of weeks I'll get one of the boys to pick a name out of the hat.
So don't be shy, now is a great time to start commenting if you haven't before.
Please make sure I can contact you ,in case you win .
Good Luck ,and have a great Bank Holiday if you are in the U.K.
