The kids have gone back to school today after the Easter holidays so the house is much quieter, well at least until 4pm! The major housework routine which always follows a school holiday is well under way and thrown in for good measure is some me time – hence Im sitting at the computer catching up in blogville while slurping on a hot cup of coffee with a biscuit (or two, or three!)
At the end of March I signed up for a crochet class in the village. Crochet is always something I liked the look of but could never manage to get the hang of. My first 3 lessons were a disaster! I just couldnt get comfortable holding the hook let alone manage any of the stitches. During my fourth lesson something seemed to ‘click’ and everything fell into place – I was well on my way to finishing my first Granny Square. We are coming to the end of the course now and so far I have mastered a few basic Granny Squares, a larger square using a different pattern and a couple of roses, what do you think ?
Although the pieces are by no means fancy Im over the moon with my achievements and things can only get better. I have my eye on making a few blankets for the furry-ones and then a bag for myself so watch this space!
Thanks for stopping by,
