so I am busy busy busy with work
but taking lots of little crafty breaks in between.
So the hexagon pillow cover has grown:
(By the way, you can find a link to a tutorial on how to crochet the hexagons here. ... and Andrea, who asked if I thought this would be good for people who aren't very experienced with crochet, my answer is yes! The second row and the joining row are a bit fiddly but the tutorial's so explicit this shouldn't be a big problem. )
I've started to make a new scarf:
which is based on the Romantic Wrap pattern (Ravelry link) from Crochet Today! magazine.
I have managed to get out into my garden and to enjoy,
if only for a little while,
the Winter sunshine and my beautiful, bright red, ivy geraniums:
and I've baked two batches of a quick yet delicious slice called Cammy's Father's Favourites.
I have also started to get ready for my wonderfully long holiday.
I'm planning lunch and dinner dates, and weekends away, with long neglected friends,
I've booked an overseas trip
and I've enrolled in (big breath)
a pastel drawing course,
a nuno felting workshop,
a glass bead making workshop
and a silversmithing workshop.
I'm so excited!
Have a wonderful week everybody.
