Washed Away

Below is a pic we took of the water rushing through our backyard , during the spot of hail/ torrential downpour we had last Tuesday night….just insane!

Apart from that, I've been busy learning how to crochet, did a class with mum on Saturday at Tapestry Craft. My first out of class attempt wasn't too bad, if you don't look at the weird bulging edge. The pointy sticks have nothing to fear, there's no way the ol' crochet hook will every become competition. The whole craft still feels a bit awkward, but I’m getting the hang of it.

There might be a scarf or two produced but that might be the extent of it. Guess I really wanted to learn how to do it for knitting, where they use some crocheting tricks to finish things off. I did manage half a granny square and I think I’m ok with them too….just going to have to practice a bit more. After the class I’ve even developed an appreciation of acrylic yarn….only for practice crocheting purposes though!

I finally made something out of the Cute Book. Truth be known, Bunny is a couple of weeks old, I just haven’t got around to posting anything about her yet. I had grand plans of making heaps of these lil critters for people, was even toying with the notion of making a wall hanging from them, but man are they fiddly and time consuming to make. Still, very very CUTE!....however I'll be sticking to knitting for now.
