Little things....

Hello lovelies, 

Wow, its been a whole month since I posted here. How time flies. 

The trip to Bali was fun and I even managed to cram in a couple of crochet sessions with the lovely Ida who I told you all about before. She was very excited to receive her learn to crochet book with full picture steps for every pattern along with a bag of cotton to practice with. I am hoping it will help her branch out a bit more with her projects. I also took a little dress for her to copy which she really loved. She likes to crochet clothes for dolls to sell. 

I made this little purse while I was there too. Just a quick little something to do. :-)

Since I got back I have not had much time to work on my projects. First my son, the one who was away when everyone else got sick, came down with the flu bugs after returning to school, then of course he gave it to me! I finally was unable to ward off the germs any longer and have been sick all week. After one day of laying in bed with shocking headaches, I got up and tried to soldier on as mums do and while my hands were just itching to get into those unfinished projects, I did not want to make mistakes with my sludgy head so I did what seemed like a marvellous idea at the time and .....

I started yet another project! LOL I needed to do something with my hands and this seemed like the perfect project and a way to use up some of those left over balls of yarn I had laying about with no projects in mind for them. So its going to be a poncho. I will share the details in another post. Once I get completely better and catch up on a little house work etc. I will finally I hope get around to writing up my list of projects for the year and share whats going on with all my other projects right now. 

Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. Happy crafting everyone. 

Hugs and smoochies xoxoxo
