I realise it's a while since I last blogged here - life's events and excitements get in the way from time to time. However, there aren't many free moments when I HAVEN'T had some yarn in my hands, lately (even if that's just moving stash piles to other boxes.....)
Best of all, I decided to put in an order to The Wool Warehouse (yes, I know I already have SEVERAL large crates of the stuff up in my workroom.....but one can never have too much!) and it arrived this morning! (not bad, since I ordered it after-hours on Wednesday evening) I'm SO impressed - quick service and VERY attractive prices, too! I don't normally like ordering yarn without seeing it, but I can happily say the Wool Warehouse is now my online shop of choice! :-)
Just looking at it all is making me lick my lips in anticipation :-)
I've also been experimenting a lot more with crochet, which is becoming ever more addictive.
I'd heard about the 'African Flower' motif and decided to have a go. (There's a great tutorial here ) Well, I was very soon hooked (excuse the pun!) and now I'm happily creating blocks (....a cushion cover? .....a blanket? ....who knows!)
Here's a finished seam:
I'm really loving using cotton and cotton-mix yarns, too. I recently made a loose cover for a footstool:
Now....back to the newly-arrived stash......where's that crochet hook......? :-)
