How are you? I am well aware that it has been a really long time since I posted! School life and real life have both been pretty busy and I’ve felt pretty drained the last few weeks. Most nights I haven’t even had the energy to pick up my crochet hook, a sure sign that things are bad!
It’s not all doom and gloom though – there has been a little creativity happening at odd times (I’m still keeping up with the stripy blanket CAL). So, because I didn’t do my normal end of the month picture board I thought I’d just remind you of a few of the things I made/did/saw/bought in the month of June
There are only two weeks and two days left of the school term now, so I’m hoping that normal service will resume then! In the meantime, I’m more likely to be active on facebook, so if you want to see what I’ve been up to pop over and have a look. And say hi while you’re there – I love hearing from you all 🙂
I was so excited to see the next CAL post! I got started straight away, and finished my rows just a few minutes ago. I immediately took it outside to get some photos…
I think I’m happy with it, but I’m still a little bit undecided. I quite like the Catherine wheels, but it seems like they’re backwards – the ‘wrong’ side seems to be on the front. This might just me being picky, but it’s bugging me a bit. But if I want to change it I’ll have to unravel the last 6 rows, add another dc/hdc row then start the Catherine wheels again. And I just don’t know if I can be bothered.
I’m also wondering about my colour choice. I like the colours I’ve used, but wondered if I should have perhaps added a couple of other colours before repeating the sherbet and parchment.
Anyway, while I think about that, let me show you the finished flower I told you about, beads and all.
Here’s a close up of the heart at the bottom…
I love it! Happy flower decoration is definitely the right name for it!
It’s currently on my notice board. I’m not sure where it’s permanent home will be, but I’m happy admiring it where it is for the time being.
