Clever M. is working on her very first Amigurumi rabbit…a very slow proccess as she has to count stitches like mad and concentrate as if her life depended on it…

Next, sew in all those loose ends and add a border…or is it add a border and sew in all those loose ends? does it matter? I’m not sure…I’ll find out on Friday’s crochet class with the very talented Nezumi world …best teacher I could have wished for….

Half term is turning out to be a very indoorsy one but I’m not complaining…lots of crafting, friends around, baking and even a spot or two of decluttering….

How is your half term going?

New project inspired by Le monde de sucrettes
