A much shorter post this week, and one with crafty goodness :-)
Some weeks ago I had a thought that I would like to make some crochet flowers, after many Google and Pinterest searches one pattern kept coming up, the Maybelle flower.
The pattern is easy to remember and in no time at all I had a lovely collection pretty circles.
Do you like my little project bag?
I ordered some yarn from the Wool Warehouse some time ago and their deliveries come beautifully wrapped in these organza bags.....Perfect for holding your projects :-)
Arranged any which way I love them!
I need to make one more yellow and orange, then i will have four of each colour.
I'm thinking they would make a lovely garland (or 2) :-)
For those that are interested, I used Rico Cotton and a 3mm hook.
The only change I made to the pattern was to start with a magic ring so that the hole in the middle was smaller.
If you should feel the urge to make some too, the pattern is here
During my week away I stitched on the Snowflower Diaries April pattern but was a bit lazy when it came to making it up, actually, in the end I didn't make it up at all.
I was having a sort out and came across this plain white photo frame and thought "that'll do nicely thank you" :-)
I took the glass out and put some wadding on some stiff cardboard and just put it in the frame.
You probably can't see from the photo but the wadding just makes the stitched piece stand forward in the frame a little.
I also left off the boarder stitching.
As you can see, I still have a 'bunny' theme going on for my April mantle, apart from different flowers and this new finish, it hasn't changed this month.
The weather is doing some strange things at the moment, yesterday morning we woke up to a covering of snow! Today is beautiful sunshine.
The rain we have been getting is proper heavy rain and these have taken a bit of a beating
And yes! my hostas are coming up :-)
You either love these or hate them, Mark hates them, I LOVE them, so we have 2 huge tubs, lol
I'm going to put my feet up and give some attention to Elizabeth now as she hasn't seen the light of day for a couple of weeks.
Have a good week
