Thank you, and crochet

I want to say a huge thank you to Melmel. She's lovely, isn't she. She's also very norty. She recently bought a whole lot of gorgeous fabric - the most I think she's ever had in one go, and should have settled down to play with it. Instead she gave lots away, to lots of her blogging friends. She sent me the fabric above, which I adore, and I've been stroking ever since. It's an early print - it's photographed in a clipping I have about Cath Kidston just four years after she set up her first shop. I really think you should have kept all this for yourself Melmel, but it's making me smile a lot. So big hugs and big thank yous. xxx

I want to say a big thank you for the awards I've been given recently. Firstly for the Kreative Blogger Award. Thank you Happy Loves Rosie and Vintage Girl.

and then for the cute lemonade award - thank you Vintage Girl and Mummyboobear

The lemonade award is for showing great attitude and/or gratitude.

And for this lovely award from Beki
I love them all. Thank you. I've done the Kreativ Blogger before, so won't repeat myself, and I think everyone I visit has had these awards, but if you visit and leave a comment, and haven't had them, please feel free to pinch 'em. LOL.

Anybody come across this book?

It's so fab, and laid out really well.

and I've been inspired to start using better wool

since I started to feel more confident, and begin making up my own flowers...

Have a good week all. x

I love the fabric, that was so kind. I have that book too and have had a go at making some flowers, the book is great but did take me a while to get my head around understanding the charts. Love your flowers so pretty! Lisaxxx

That's really lovely fabric - how generous! Is the crochet book for beginners? I really think I need Crochet for Dummies, to be honest!

Hi, i love your crochet flowers. I am going to look for that book on ebay. I have just learned to crochet (thanks to youtube) and have made a shamrock and some biscuits! I think flowers might be easy too. Thanks for the info. cheers...Pam
