Thank you SO much for all the lovely comments you left me on my last post. They really cheered me up! I’m so lucky to have such wonderful friends!!! ♥
I had to go back to see the doctor again yesterday. He said that the antibiotics I’d been taking hadn’t worked, and gave me some different ones. So, fingers crossed, these ones will start to work their magic over the next few days.
Well, I’ve been a bit bored, just resting and not feeling up to doing much crafting. But I do have ONE achievement I wanted to share with you.....
My first proper piece of crochet!!!
I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to catch on to crocheting. I only wanted to make a granny square!!! I have books for beginners, but couldn’t follow the instructions or diagrams at all. I’ve watched countless YouTube videos. These were more useful than the books, but I still couldn’t quite get in. Then, on Monday night, my mother-in-law (who was visiting for Easter weekend) showed me what to do – and it clicked. Hooray!!!
So, I spent Tuesday morning re-reading the instructions in my books and re-watching the You-Tube videos. And they all made sense! Eureka!!! I made this.....
Now I’ve got my granny square, though, I don’t know what to do with it. Should I tie in the end bits and use it as a coaster? Or should I keep going on this one – and turn it into a cushion cover or a little blanket? Or make lots, fix them together and make something that way? What do you think??? I’d be very grateful for any suggestions from you experts out there.
I have some other colours that I could use.....
I bought these from the Creativa exhibition (in Dortmund) a few weeks ago. I loved the bright colours, and bought them to motivate myself to learn to crochet. It worked!
I’m off to do some more crocheting now – I’m worried that I’ll forget if I stop for too long..... ;-)
Hugs to you all,
