I'm feeling a bit under the water this Saturday so I am ready to let go of all plans and Have To's and just snuggle up underneath my homemade blankets with some luscious crochet WiP's I have going on.
The kettle will make me hot tea all day through and on and off I will
My son Luca Bo has a stomach bug, resting next to me on our big sofa. All snuggled up underneath a Tilda quilt with a bowl ready next to him. Just in case. If you are a mother you know what it is like... The girls are playing with friends and my man is working all day. It is quiet in the house. And I feel a bit guilty as I don't have the energy to do a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g that probably needs to be done. But, hey. Sometimes we just have to "check out" from daily duties, right?
I will flick through the pages of my lovely surprise gift from Beata at Rosehip, Mollie Makes Crochet book. THANK YOU!!!! You are spoiling me across the Atlantic sea. Love, love, love!!!
It arrived a few days ago and I have to say it is a really lovely crochet book. Great projects, pictures and instructions. Beata has contributed with her famous crochet edgings she uses for her baby blankets and pillow cases. Divine!!! You can buy her beautiful creations in Rosehip Etsy Shop.
Beata is rubbing shoulders with other big crochet designers and bloggers like Emma Lamb, Anita Mundt, Ilaria Chiaratti to mention some of the other contributors amongst the 15 projects that are shared. I would like to try a crochet trim project and maybe one of the flowers featured... A pot holder?
The book is perfect for a beginner but also the more experienced crocheter with the big chapter at the end with techniques, tips and tricks thoroughly explained in detail. I highly recommend this book for any aspiring crocheter or crafty friend. It ha some surprises up it sleeve as well, not just the basics some of us already knows.
So while I am hooking away on a current WiP, I hope you have a lovely crafty Saturday where you live. Maybe all snuggled up like me. Or not. Lets have a cup of tea shall we. There is always time for that. ANd maybe I will feel better tomorrow.
