xox simple perfection I think xox
Of course a sunny day has other meanings too... grab the camera quick for a few photo's of my latest project. We all know and love the gorgeous Lucy of Attic24 fame, well she gave me oh such a boost of inspiration when she posted her Japanese Flower Scarf and pattern links here.
I was feeling like I was in a bit of a creative slump, thinking that I didn't have too much spare cash to spend on new yarn and that I must not be greedy for more yarn, instead I needed to use up all my bits and bobs from this basket
So Lucy's timing of her pattern links for the Japanese Flower Scarf could not have been better and so I download the pictorial instructions and gave it a whirl
I made it in about 10 minutes and felt my creative juices re-appearing as I was rather pleased with myself for having interpreted a crochet diagram pattern for the first time ever and to be frank with you I think I found it easier than written instructions!
So last night, it was DVD, popcorn and hooky time with Alice and these little flowers materialised
They are really easy, I promise and I decided to make a magic circle instead of a chain to begin with and in the first row did Trebles without 1 chain between them as the pattern suggests. I wanted a then 'tighter' in the centres and am pleased with the results.
And so my purple stash is now becoming depleted and I am a happy hooking girl again xox Yay !
A scarf rather than a shawl will be created as a present for a friend's up and coming birthday. I feel very high spirited and happy about it today... (this may well be linked to the tax man sending me a letter which I dreaded opening this morning to find that I am owed some money! Oh frubjulous day.... I can put it away towards a happy camping trip we are planning for the summer!)
Blessings and beautiful moments and memories to you all. Thank you so much for all your comments of kindness. I'll say goodbye with some more flowery goodiness xox
