Hi there my fellow crochetiers.. its been a busy week for me hence my absence. I’ve been trying to catch up with friends and family. Giving them my time, my help and also trying to invest some time for me too!
So here are some lovely rose which I’ve made for the craft club. I’m not sure what they are going be used for. A wreath I suspect. They are so simple to make. It only took me 2 hours to make a dozen.. follow the pattern link here on Ravelry
And I’ve also been preparing for some Christmas presents too. Bunting and bows being on the agenda for this year.. don’t you just love the felt available from Hobbycraft!!!
But, with the winter nights coming I have taken to reading again. I have to allow my hands to rest especially with the intense work needed on Lynn’s Blanket, although the colours are really cheerful to work with on these darker nights.
Crochet Saved My Life … by Kathryn Vercillo
A fantastic collection of interviews from people who have found crochet an effective way of dealing with stress, illness and life issues. You must by this book!
And now a proud moment…
The Whole Armour Of God by Linda Parker.
Linda is a member of the family.
This is her first publication on a subject very close to her heart as the daughter of a former Army Chaplain. Her book gives accounts of the hardships faced not only by the chaplains and soldiers on the front line during the Great War but also an insight to how public criticism questioned the bravery of these spiritual heroes .
It is a very thought provoking read and another must buy for Christmas book!
So there we are.. plenty to keep you thinking about till my next pop in session.. time for a little drive to cheer Alex up and a fruit tea later!
Sending you a cosy and warm safe from harm weekend xxxxxxxxxxxxx
