I did make a number of stars and snowflakes for the school fayre, of which a few were sold for their funds. This pattern for a star came out of a book I recently purchased and was a very interesting motif to build.
Apart from that, most projects have fallen by the wayside as Christmas presents become more pressing.
My in-laws are off on the annual 'get away for the winter' jaunt to S.Africa this week and I am struggling to finish their Christmas presents. My FIL has a favorite jumper which has a small hole in the front. Lots of joking has been made about making him a flower to cover the hole. So this weekend I have been amusing myself (and it turns out, my husband)..............
.....................prepare yourself for some appalling crochet!
Now you do need to use
some lots of imagination, because as this stands it does look rather like a dodgy donkey with deformed legs.....but then again this is a first attempt...........cut me some slack..........
How many attempts do I get? And have you guessed what it is yet?
This one (according to my hubby stifling the laughter) has a Jay-Lo bum so definitely isn't quite right.
Maybe I should check out what a Protea flower looks like...............
Well, that just about sums up this week's poor efforts!
Before I go, I did want to tell you about our walk yesterday with the boys. We had planned to walk around the local reservoir which provides the county's water. When we got there, it was rainy and windy and not at all suitable for a walk, but we did drive the boys around to see how the dam worked.
The realisation that this was the water that came out of our taps was revelationary for the boys.....then followed lots of "eeeeuuuugghhh"s!
There we have it! I'm going to go and perfect my......ahem......motif and catch up with you lovely fellow bloggers. Hope you all have a great week!
