Making Flowers

Sitting here feeling a bit hoarse from cheering first Jess Ennis and then Mo Farah - both won olympic gold, it was amazing! Got very involved, so enjoying a nice cool drink now.

We were having a walk, popping in and out of shops when I spotted some bargain wool. I have plenty and didn't really want to buy without a project in mind, so luckily I remembered that Imogen would love a throw to go over the chair bed Andy is picking up from Adam tomorrow! The colour choices were gorgeous, Imogen choose these beautiful candy and pastel colours.




I'm planning to start tonight or tomorrow, and hoping I might get to spend some time in the garden crocheting.

I've ordered some ring bases and spent this afternoon making some lovely flowers. My favourite is the Rose, you can't see in the photo, but the colours are beautiful, pearl with green, lush!



I'm so excited to be able to wear them, maybe with pendants too.



 Hopefully I can show you the start of Imogen's new throw next time.

Take care
