As I am working on my special secret project and I am 1o patterns into it (Jumping up and down with joy!!!), I thought I would share some of the things that make me happy:
When I was young my parents took us to a beautiful beach resort in Sri Lanka, the beach went on forever, the sand was soft warm and a beautiful gold colour. My brother and I thought we were in heaven.
I brought lots of books with me while my brother had brought his constant companions, 15 large plastic dinosaurs. Before we realised what happened my brother buried each each of these 15 precious dinosaurs along the beach, feeling very mini Indian Jones, then got quite caught up playing in the sea.
Before bed he suddenly wanted his dinosaurs but try as we might we couldn't find them. We thought the morning would bring illumination but in the whole next week we couldnt find even a single one, so my little brother had to go home without any of his faithful friends. But now I have had an idea, some 20 years later I thought I could replace my bro's long lost dinos with these cuties from Planet June. How sweet are they!
I also am head over heals in love with the yarn from K1Yarns - Where I teach my crochet classes. Well worth a look if you are in Scotland with shops in both Edinburgh and Glasgow. I am coveting the new cashmere mixes - stunning.
I saw a really sweet example of my brushed crochet technique I use to make my fluffygurumi like Punch the Polar and the little fennec fox
