Aprons and Afghans

I could hardly sleep a wink
as i couldn't believe i had taken this big step
after thinking about it for weeks
and secretly admiring all the others out there
who were expertly managing their blogs...
not knowing whether i could too

i thought that i should acknowledge
the creators of the apron pattern...

these are all Simplicity 4282 view F.

this is another view of the one
i have sewn for Miss B for christmas
(a pat on the back for being so darn organised

i got lost in all that wonderfully pink, pinkness
and loved sewing it, dreaming of eiffel towers
and so much frenchness and prettiness...

but my first attempt at this episode of creativity
was not aprons but afghans
thanks to Michelle at Loving the Vintage
and her granny square tutorial...

i thought i would learn  how to crochet a square
then another and another,
i cannot, it seems, do things by ones.
so i had to use up all the ball of wool
and then get others and use them too...

before i knew it i was crocheting a whole blanket.

it is winging its way from oz to nz as we speak
on a secret engagement to become my wonderful dad's
80th birthday present  in november.

i know it is only nearly september..
i haven't gone crazy but
where i live the moths would have a little nibble
if i didn't send it soon.

my mum and sister in the land of the long white cloud
will ooh and ah over this field of flowers
and then wrap it up with lovely paper
and deliver it safely with love in november for me.

Tomorrow i will show you what i did
with all those leftover flowers...
i just couldn't waste them.

so til tomorrow then Good night

with love from Naturally Carol  xox
