Struggling Back

Hello and I hope everyone has had a marvelous Christmas. Thank you for all the good wishes, it's very appreciated.

I've been poorly since the end of November, with a few days off, getting pretty fed up with it now. I think I must be quite run down to go straight from one illness to the next, but hopefully I'll start picking up soon :) I've started wandering around blogland again, seeing wonderful creations and catching up on people's news.

I finished my throw for the conservatory, and it now sits happily over the back of the sofa in there, handy to pull over your knees when it's feeling a bit chilly!




You can't really tell from the above picture, but it is quite big, so it's nice and snugly and the colours are just right for this lovely sofa that we found in a local charity shop.

After using double crochet to join all the squares together, I made some pretty flowers.



 Then a border so I could include some of the pink from the flowers, and a pretty decorative border just to finish off.



 Time to find something new!

Take care

  3. Glad to hear you are slowly on the mend. So many people seem to have been really ill over this holiday! Love the throw it is delightful and the colours are quite stunning. Hope your eyes are feeling up to scanning lots of new patterns, so that you can get stuck in again when you are on top form.
