Well what a busy few weeks I have had!! I joined another great group "crochet school". I have to say this has been on my list of crafty things to learn/try. I have tried using a few different books and just really couldn't figure it out, which was pretty frustrating because there were all these cute amigarumi patterns out there that I wanted to make, and don't forget about giant crochet throws made out of scrumptious wools. This school, I cant tell you how impressed I am, our teacher Dana is really fantastic, she just seems to know how to simplify things and I just seem to be able to pick up the different stitches and techniques.
So here is my first EVER crochet, that actually looks like crochet...I am pretty chuffed with myself I must say. So if you are interested in learning this pretty funky crafty thing hop on over to her blog and join the class and flickr group. It really is way easier and more fun than I thought I would be having, even when it is really frustrating. Also, a big thanks to my neighbour Carolyn, because without her help I may have given up after the first lesson.
On another note I have been a bit bad about posting to the farmers wife quilt along group. I have been making blocks but not posting, I am a ping pong ball what can I say, I cant seem to stop bouncing from one thing to another. Sadly I just cant seem to bounce to this here blog on a regular basis. I am going to try and post some of my farmers wife blocks tomorrow.
Hope all is well wherever you are.
