Welcome to my world

During the holidays in July 2011 I decided to teach myself to crochet. Iwanted to keep a diary of my journey but I'm hopeless at writing so I thought I'd try blogging.
So why not join me on my journey, friends are always welcome and the kettles'always hot. So come on in pull up a chair and enjoy the ride.

Ducks, work area and WIP

My son is looking after his cousins pets whilst he is away on holidays. The other day while he was checking on the ducks he noticed that the eggs that the duck was sitting on where hatching, he even got to watch one of the ducklings hatch. So the next day we went to have a look thinking we might see about 5 or so, only to be greeted with this sight

We haven't been able to count them accurately but we think there must be 17. They all seem to be doing well lets hope it stays like that till my nephew returns.

I took this photo today. Don't they look so cute hiding in the long grass.

Today I decided that it was time I tidied up my hoard of craft things and find myself a place to store them properly. Unfortunately there isn't any room inside, I could try in the corner of my lounge but I think DJ might have a few things to say about his lounge chair being moved outside :). So I got to thinking that there might be some room in our new games room. The kids are only using half of it for there xbox and books. So I claimed the unused space as my own. 

I turned this
In to this

Inside the cupboard 

Oh!   No!
I haven't even been crocheting for a year and already I've managed to start a yarn stash.

Is there any hope??!!


Oh well I had better console myself with a trip to Spotlight  Bunnings to look at some yarn porn storage solutions.

This isn't a very big work area but I will admit that I still have a lot of stuff inside.
If I spread it over a larger area then I can kid myself that I don't really have that much.

Just a few photos of my WIP

The pattern I am working with is very hard to understand and also doesn't give a lot of detail. Maybe they assume you know what to do. This morning I had to do a bit of frogging but I got there in the end. One example of confusing instructions is it says to join the shoulders when you work it as one piece ?? go figure. I think it means side seams.
I've almost finished the second front panel and then it's on to the sleeves. Now I just hope it will fit my niece.
Well I'm of to put my feet up and enjoy a bit more hooky time before I tuck in for the night.

Bear hugs to all

Have a great day were ever you are
