'Crochet keeps our hands busy so our minds can rest. It is a gift to help quiet the world around us, if even for a moment. To create -- and think of those we create for --is a quiet prayer of hope, love and dreams all wrapped up in a hook, a book and a ball of yarn. Author Anonymous. Thanks Cynthia.

Strawberries and cream

I apologise for the weird underwater photos but here are my contributions. Could I heck find my cream yarn so I have substituted a slightly oatmealy cream. More a Cranachan  than strawbs and cream. 




The sun has all but left us here in the UK so I fashioned my own sunshine in the form of these bad boys. I have a thing for beach huts and made it up as I went along, I will happily share if anyone is interested although I’m sure you clever ladies could easily work it out. The fishies are from here and the ripple is from Pauline Turners book. She taught me to crochet via that book. Have you heard of her?


Well a very happy weekend to you all. Louise xx
