Not a lot to show you this week. I was going to work on my seahorses but I seem to have mislaid one! I know I saw it somewhere recently but can’t remember where. So I finished a floor cloth since I thought it would last longer than the shop sort and I believe on… Read More Mainly bees……….
I am aware that these photographs were taken and processed rather quickly as I am a bit short for time. Patricia over at Daniella Joe’s blog was interested in pineapple patterns so I thought I would share the ones I have. They were obviously very popular in the past. These are from two books that… Read More Pineapples everywhere!
This is a very special project that has been on my mind since the early days of my blog. Once I was comfortable with crochet, I knew that I wanted to make something to go on my dining table.

I have started on the second one and with luck it might be finished by… Read More Yay! I’ve finished a sock for me!
