Goodness, it's been an age since I blogged last (well, a month - but that's long enough!).
It's been a funny old month really - I caught a truly nasty bout of tonsilitis, even my GP was surprised by how bad it was. It took two weeks to shift even with antibiotics, and as a result Mr T and I had to miss out on a fun week in Somerset with both of our families as I was just too ill to go. The daily shift from bed down to the sofa was reall all I could manage! Still, all better now - and 10lb lighter for not being able to eat for over a week!
Haven't shared any hooky business in a while so thought I would today.
I found a cute little pattern for tiny hearts agess ago and (before Christmas - these pics have been patiently waiting to be blogged for a long time!) really enjoyed using it to whip up some garlands, although to keep with my style I chose to thread them onto twine rather than crochet a chain inbetween them.
My latest project was a doily blanket - it is the first pattern I have ever purchased (see here for the details), so I was excited to get going on it. It only took a few evenings - athough, overly keen to get it finished last week, I managed to give myself some ort of extreme-crocheting injury on the last evening; my upper arm, elbow and shoulder were in agony and I needed to take pinkillers and a good lashing of deep heat before bed! Who knew this could be such a dangerous hobby?!
Anyway, I love the finished article - it's so delicate and pretty:
Here's a close up of the leaf motif:
I do believe the April Sarah's Cards kits are making it through the letterboxes os our subscribers, and what a gorgeous one this was to play with. Will be back soon to share what I made with it :)
Thanks as always for popping by xxx
