I had my second crochet lesson last week after successfully completing my homework (yes, honestly, Yvonne sent me away to practise before we could move on to another flower with new stitches!) So, having produced many "lazy daisies" it was apparent that practise makes perfect, and we moved on to "meconopsis". I have spent the past week making these, so am looking forward to my lesson on Wednesday and learning another flower.
So, having an ever growing pile of crocheted flowers I decided it was about time that I tried one out on a card, albeit a rather quick card:
What do you think? Hopefully as I get better at crochet I might be able to use smaller hooks and therefore make smaller more delicate flowers ... but in the meantime I'm happy with how these are coming along.
A couple of weeks ago (Mother's Day weekend), my Mum came down to stay with us and whilst visiting a garden centre we came across a Cat Mint plant. Mum assured me that Morris would go mad for it as all of her cats always had. He was less than impressed :( Not one to waste money, I planted it anyway and he has ignored it ever since .. until today
today he loved it! He rolled in it and laid on it for ages - money well spent and Mums do know best!!!
