Short Post ( again)

I am so stupid and forgetful. That camera is still not charged and is sitting there gathering dust. Still, I should tell you that we are going to a craft fair in a few minutes. I will have to use Mum's phone, I guess. Lots of fun to come, though. Mum has finished her scarf, except for some flowers for the ends, so hopefully some eye candy on that front.
G'day

Flowers, flowers, everywhere!

Once again, I must apologise extensively for the lack of photos, but I just I had to get back to blog world with a new pattern. This my 2nd one now, and it is quite an simple awfully easy one.
Cute Flower Pattern:
This pattern is very versatile, and can be made with any number of petals. Just adjust the number of  chains in the foundation ring and double crochets. You can also change the shape of the petals, by doing, for example, a thinner petal (a slipstitch, a double crochet, a double treble, a double, and slipstitch).

chain-ch
double crochet- dc
Treble-treb.
double treble- doub. treb.
slipstitch-ss

  1. Ok, so start by ch 6 and join by a ss to make a foundation ring. 
  2. Next, dc 7 times into ring.
  3.  * ss, dc, treb, doub. treb, treb, dc, ss * into each individual dc. 
  4. Ta- da! you flower is fini!
Lovely! Tell me how you do on this. I am thinking of including these in my secret project.

Lately..........

Lately:
 The camera has found its way back home, bringing its tail behind it, but is out of battery, so you will have to be patient yet, my friends. However, I would like to give you a brief sketch of what has been happening to me lately.
The Barn Dance was great, and I met up with some more people whom I have not seen for a long time, which was a pleasure.
We had a big Bonfire Party. It was really lovely, in front of the raging flames, with the sparks dancing, leaving trails of light like long, golden ribbons as they leapt up to the heavens.
My secret project is coming along very well, and I just can't wait to show you. It is mainly a scrapbuster, but I still love the colours all the same. They work so well together. I am already onto the sides, so it will not be too long now. Watch this Space.
love
