Hello my Beautiful People ….Happy International Women’s Day to you all.
Its been a very busy couple of weeks. I’ve been running around with the Boys to various clinics with Alex and yet more X rays for Richard to check up on his osteoarthritis. Consequently most of my hooky work has been done in the evenings to help relax me, so many apologies for not responding as quickly to your comments. I am fine and well and thanks for all your concerns.
What I have realised though is how wonderful it is when realise how much you can learn through hobbies.. And indeed its so with this Groovyghan that I’m making at the moment.
It’s like a montage of all the things I’ve crocheted throughout the last year, all rolled into one… but better!
It has reminded me to give thanks to all the wonderful people I’ve met on Flickr, through my blog and in others who have taught me so much about colour combinations and mixing medias.
For example, I look at Alex’s Granny Headboard everyday and notice so so many flaws in it .. but that can not be said of the glorious grannies I’ve made for Groovy.
They’re all uniform and I am delighted to see how I had to look twice to sort the front from the back after I had weaved in my ends!!!
And then here comes the challenge.. the simple round target squares.. what can be more simple you ask.. but again in Alex’s room is the mandala and each day I have to look at the flaw in the joining stictc… so not wanting the same to become visible in this project, here is the one of the greatest links I found from one of our most familiar designer Sarah London..
Here is her tutorial for a symmetrical and seamless circle…and it works!!!
Have a look at it …. But not before I leave you with some wonderful pics of my Funky Groovyghan baby …. The flower granny got the better of me. After frogging it back for the sixth time along with a good nights sleep did I finally understand the pattern instructions… does that ever happen to you guys???? Grrrrrrrrrrr
Anyways, enjoy the rest of the day and the weekend to come.
Sending you all a very beautiful day with added hugs.
