Been busy, busy, busy...

Tidying,  so things now look like this....

Much nicer to look at than it was. I had a lot of plates on there but have out them away underneath.  They are mostly cups that belonged to grandparents and great-Aunts, I love them all.

And I have been sitting here

(check out the 'old lady' lamp - I am practising!)

making lots of these :)

I also  watched this young man in his school production of Treasure Island

I assure you it was Treasure Island and not Hair!!!  Still refusing to have it cut but I told him he might have to tie it back at school soon so he is contemplating a 'trim'!!

More later...blogger is not letting me upload photos very easily and it is taking ages :(

Busy.....with my hook...

Starting to make this Ripple Blanket courtesy of the very talented Lucy from Attic 24.  If you like crochet, you MUST look at her blog, it is amazing!

I am doing 4 rows of each colour and have now started my fourth is so easy...or maybe, more likely, Lucy has made the instructions very clear.

A mahoosive granny square that now had the green border finished...

which will become a cushion cover.

I can't believe how many years I have wasted thinking I couldn't crochet!!
