Once again, thanks for all of your lovely comments.
We are settling down again and hoping that things stay calm here.
I should be used to it really as I worked out that Tom has been in Hospital 12 times for various serious illnesses over the years that we have been married, this is not counting the outpatients that we have attended.
We have the bag permanently packed for these occasions, lol
Of course this doesn't trouble any of the furry family as you can see by Rupert lounging on the covers that are supposed to protect the leather sofa (they don't as they still manage to scratch the arms. lol) I need to get the man up to do some scratch repairs, I took out an insurance just for this purpose but I'm sure the man doesn't realise how many time he's going to be visiting us, lol
Any way, the crochet is coming along nicely.
Some time ago I bought a whole lot of 'The Art of Crochet' yarn at the car boot and it's perfect for making these madala's as the colours are so lovely and bright.
Notice the chocs and the scrabble dictionary, these are requirements for sitting at the desk.
I'm juggling crochet, scrabble, solitaire and reading blogs and need the sustenance of chocolate to keep me going, lol
Here's the first one finished, this is going to take some beating as its so pretty.
This one is almost complete but I am jumping for joy as I suddenly thought I could embellish these Mandala's with beads etc. You know what I'm like with beads and lace etc.
I've already put a bit of gold on this one in chain stitch and it had lifted a simple pattern.
Watch this space I can see a few gold beads going on this one.
