February-itis - or 'I'm still here'

Hello All,
February has come and gone, pretty uneventfully.
I think February is recuperation month, after the holidays.

Autumn has arrived, it is calling me into the garden. "Come and prune me, feed me, plant me, mow me......"

"Autumn, please be quiet, just long enough to pop my head in here and let people know I am still alive.  Maybe just long enough to show them some tidbits, that might make them believe that I know where my crochet hook is."

February and March are also the time of year for special anniversaries for our family.  The kind that make you draw into yourself, just a bit.  And ponder, and remember.  And cherish.  And cry a lot, then laugh a bit, then cry again.

But I will show you some bits and pieces that I've fiddled with in the last few weeks.

There is the jar cover that I saw at Tangled Happy.  I adapted it to suit my needs.




And the coathanger came from either Tangled Happy, or Marmalade Rose.  Actually, Im pretty sure it was Marmalade Rose.






And, of course, there is the Sarah London Appeal squares. Just have to sew in a few ends, then I can post them.



Do you remember the blue and green thing?  I crocheted some of the squares together, more in progress.








Chat soon,

Cheers
Fi

  1. I do like the green and blue 'thing'. I keep meaning to have a go at the coat hanger. I have been collecting wooden ones for that very purpose!!

  5. I have never been sick an entire month before except for this February. I'm glad it's over. I thought for a minute there that you were kinda going crazy when you said auntumn has arrived...then I remembered, you live in opposite seasons that I do. Spring is almost here...I cannot wait for it this year! I love the crocheted stuff you made. I especially like the way you made simple flowes out of buttons. Very cute.

  11. Oh Fi, you come to visit my blog and find the butterflies delightful...and I find my blog friends, who flit in and out of my corner of the world, to be just as delightful. You make me laugh and brighten my day. It has been awhile since I visited you and as usual your lovely crochet catches my eye and makes me wonder what project you will show next. I saw on your other posting about the sourdough bread and that brings me back to days when I too had made a starter and kept it alive until I realized all that yummy bread was killing my hips, and plastering itself to my butt! Oh, but so good. I could smell it all the way over here in the states, the wind musta been blowing in just right direction, lol.......take care lovely friend. Susanne :)

    Thanks for your lovely comment, it made me laugh though. Good job I've got a rubbish camers - I haven't dusted for ages!
