On my hook...

I haven't been crocheting much lately - I haven't had a lot of spare time and it's been too hot to do anything other than breathe!  (It was 41 degrees C again yesterday)

I am still working away on my little Marabelle flower garland, the pile is slowly getting bigger... I do a few here and there when I get a chance.

I've also started a round cushion cover too.  I've done the front, the little rose and leaves, so it's just the back and it'll be done.  I am having trouble sourcing a round cushion insert though which is very frustrating. ( Let me know if you have any ideas where I can get one from.)

I've also started on Little Miss 'I's christening bonnet. I saw this pattern on Pinterest months ago, before I could even crochet, and just loved it.  I immediately knew I had to make it for her.  It's so pretty...

I thought I should do a 'practice' bonnet before starting on the actual one though.  The pattern has been really easy to follow and I haven't had to unravel too many rows :)  This bonnet is a pale brown colour (very vintage looking ❤) but I've bought a gorgeous cotton yarn called Blush; a really pale pink, which I'll use for her actual christening bonnet.   I can't wait to start on the actual bonnet, but here's a sneak peak at the 'practice' one. (sorry about the photos - the colour is a bit off; the actual colour is more like the top photo)

It's so old fashioned... I just love it ❤❤  She is getting christened in March so I'll have to get my skates on and finish this one off so I can make a start on the actual bonnet.

What have you been up to??

(I'll post details of each project, ie the pattern, yarn type and colour etc when they're completed)

  2. oh my goodness, your crochet is beautiful

    1. Thank you Mel. I'm in love with your little crochet pixie bonnet that you had in your shop. Just gorgeous. Will you be doing anymore of those?

  3. The more I see, the more I want to learn to crochet! The bonnet will be perfect for such a special day, and I do ljust love the cushion cover.. I hope someone can help you out with the insert!!

    1. Thanks Naam. I taught myself to crochet from you tube and other bloggers, so you should give it a go. Once you start you won't be able to stop;)
