Crochet, crafts, all things beautiful and the ups and down of a busy mummy.

Sorry I've not managed to blog this week, it's been one of those mad weeks....car mot, dressing up day at school , 2 birthday parties, 2 ballet classes, football match, 2 mother and toddler classes and the list goes on and on. I have managed to finish my flower scarf in between everything else.
I am going to try and get it blocked this weekend as it's a bit curly and it has tatty tassels.
I did get to my knit and natter this week thank goodness, it was nice to have two hours to myself, I took my ripple blanket with me and at last it's starting to look like a blanket now instead of a scarf.
It looks so nice on my sofa, don't you think? Shame it's promised to someone else.
Can you remember the poncho pattern I showed you in my last post, well I started it today.
I know there's not much to show, but what happened was the postman arrived and brought these little lovelies...
..... ooh look, my new Japanese crochet books. I was supposed to wait until Christmas for these but like the big child that I am I needed them now because I saw lots of other people showing off theirs on their blog. I hope I can manage to follow the diagrams, what will really please me is if I gets lots of comments saying such things as " really easy" or " it's a doddle". If there are any Japanese crochet experts out there, please make yourself known so I can call on you in times of need.
I am going to go and make myself a coffee, a few biscuits and sit and look at the beautiful pictures in my books.
