Crafting in the Sun

Well, I’ve taken the plunge and had a weeks holiday in Portugal, leaving Hubby, daughter and the crafting at home!

It’s so lovely to completely chill out in the sunshine, without sneezing from hayfever.  I haven’t completely left all the crafting at home though.  I was hoping to be able to crochet on the plane, but I was told I couldn’t take a crochet hook in the my hand luggage.  So I had to make do with reading my latest issue of ‘LGC Knitting and Crochet’ instead.

Anyway,  I have been doing some crochet practice and have made a couple of small items using new stitches.  So here’s my first doily.


It was lovely to use some new techniques and to practice changing yarns.

Next is my first little bowl, with a lacy base! My daughter has now claimed this for her bedroom.

It’s been such a lovely relaxing break and I have really recharged my batteries, ready for Half term when I get home!

Happy crafting
