Long time no see. Lets see if I can remember how to do this!!
I thought you'd like to see the newest member of our family, and the reason for a massive lack of creativity!

This is Willow
She's a husky x rottie

Isn't she lovely?
Here's some more:

I'm not gonna lie this post is going to be full to the point of bursting of cute doggy pics. 
If you're hoping for anything crochet related I'm sorry , but not this post !!!!!!!!

So now she's just over a year old the peeing, pooing stealing, biting, jumping, ripping, disappearing, gardening, zooming, have calmed down. *Happy sigh*
Till next time!

Pretty pics

Time for some pretty pictures!
This pretty flower is called a butterfly plant.

The flower P gave me for my birthday last year is still going strong!

Staying with flowers. A springy wreath.
I think I prefer the layout below.
I made this little cover because I was bored  and could't think of anything else to make. 

Lastly I'm just finishing off a cushion cover.

I hope you enjoyed the photos!
Till next time

Crochet bits and bobs

Firstly an update on "The amazing thing". I haven't been able to go (sad face!).
Poor P has been very very unwell, and my car is broken. Next Wednesday, will be my first meeting. Please keep all your fingers and toes crossed!
In the meantime I have been making some more little hearts.

And some little flowerloom flowers (using the tiny weeny loom)

My plan is to cover my wall in what we call the pretty room!
It's grown since!

I've untangled all of the tangled up bits of yarn in my poof. (foot stool)
Much better!

And I have made tons of flowers (the tin is now full)
Unfortunately the battery's in my camera have gone flat, but on my next post I'll show you all of the flowers, and the granny square progress. 
Till next time

The amazing thing!

This week has been lovely!
I had the most amazing thing happen on Wednesday. As was walking through my local high street, I happened to glance into a coffee shop. What caught my eye were the people who were sat on the squishy sofas. They were smiling and laughing, generally having a good time. 
It was lovely to see, and a little part of me wished I could be part of something like that. 
As I stared glanced, I saw that they were KNITTING and CROCHETING!!!!!!!!
I am one of the shyest people you could meet, I even have a bit of a stutter around friends.
I virtually threw myself through the doors, headlong into the group and asked/ begged to join!!
So on Wednesday coming, I am going along. Excited doesn't even come close! I just hope I can string a sentence together!

I hope you like the photos of this weeks crafty bits!
