This is my crochet so far . I know its nothing spectacular but as I couldnt crochet at all a week ago I am really pleased with it.
Its going to be a blanket - I just hope I finish it as I have a habit of starting projects but not finishing them. Perhaps now I'm a blogger it will encourage me as I can show you my progress.
I really want to learn how to do decorative squares like those at Attic 24 whose crochet is amazing.
Yesterday I got the chance to go Charity Shopping - yippee. As I home educate my brilliant parents have my son every Thursday and collect my daughter from primary school so that I get a break.
Christmas day and New Years Day both fell on a Thursday so its been nearly three weeks since I have had the opportunity to get out and about with hubby.
We went to Stone yesterday which has eight charity shops in the main street !!!! And a few great cafes for respite.
We bought lots of books as we normally do - anything to do with crafting, self sufficiency, education, spirituality, past lives, cooking etc
I found those great little cocktail forks - they would have been great for the pickles over Christmas and this beautiful unused tablecloth and napkin set for under three pound.
A couple of DVDs for the kids , The Simpson movie and Pirates of the Caribbean and we still hadnt spent twenty quid !!!
Roll on Thursday !!!
Just trying to get the new baby card finished and then have to get lasagnes ready - little one is a vegetarian so I have to make two lots.
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for your comments - they are all really encouraging.
