I'm running very late this week, as you have probably noticed. Just turned my computer on to find that lots of you have already posted on Handmade Monday, I will sit down this evening and have a catch up.
I was cooking a roast for a pre football dinner last night and of course then there was the football. Not that I am a fan but when food, drink (just a little of course, it would be rude not to!!) and a get together with friends are involved, it just has to be done! We had a good evening though, despite England losing (although with my very limited knowledge of football I personally didn't think we deserved to win!)
I'm sat outside waiting for the sunshine to come out, probably my fault it's not though, as I put a skirt on today, first time for weeks, in the hope of catching a few rays on my lily white legs!! But it does mean I can actually see the computer screen, I suppose!!
I must thank you all for your comments on last week's post! I'm really pleased you all liked Maisy and I have to admit I had wondered about a Jumbo version just like some of you did! But it was only a passing thought for now!!!! It seems as though everyone likes the sound of Jumbo crochet and I agree with you it does sound a lot more friendly and like you said "It does what it says on the tin" :) I had a good few laughs reading your comments, thank you so much!! Keep 'em comin'! :)
I have been messing about again this week and found a rather cute pattern for a little koala so thought I'd have a go.
I crocheted him in Sirdar Blur as I thought he would look nice slightly fluffy.
I've also been trying to come up with ideas for the Textured Crochet Workshop I have coming up in the Autumn. I'm intending us to have a go at as many heavily textured stitches as we can find. If anyone has any favourites please pass them on to me.
Here is the beginning of a popcorn square and I'm afraid that's as far as I got yesterday. So when I have finished writing this blog, I shall carry on.
Ok, that's it for this week, I'm going to carry on with my squares now and I shall sit down this evening and have a relaxing browse through all your lovely blogs over on Handmade Monday. Can't wait to see what names you come up with for 'Koala'!
Thank you for reading folks, see you later :) x
