I think so….and I MADE IT!!…it wasn’t planned …I swear….I thought I was making a blanket …then a cushion perhaps….see it hereΒ …then one day it was cold enough to switch the heating on and so the door drafter was needed…but nobody could find it…and then I just had one of those aha , I know what I can do. aha ….and then some more aha moment…and voila the door drafter was created….thankfully I had some of that soft toys stuffing….so pleased with myself….I love love love it….

I heart tapestry crochet…

and I love the fact that I was able to work out the pattern by myself…inspiration from here.….not sure what is going to be….a large cushion….a blanket….hanging decoration? …we shall see….

I’m dead tired from all the Eid celebration partying yesterday and soon a couple of friends are coming to help me finish off all the cakes but still I find time to crochet……I need crochet in my life…when I’m tired…when I’m stressed….when I’m fed up….

I leave you with some Eid related pics…..

Crochet lessons are back….

nothing formal….just three friends together crocheting, drinking coffee, eating biscuits and chatting……it was so nice to get back together after so many months….life happens….but it looks like it’s going to be a regular thing once again…..insh’Allah…

One of the ladies (we will call her teacher)is a very accomplished crocheter and all things craft related so I like to take advantage of her presence at my place to learn a new stitch or technique…I’ve been wanting to learn tapestry crochet for a while and today was the day…..ta dah…..

a bit tricky but got there in the end…..that was just the practice run and now for the real thing I’m going for a harlequin blanket….watch this space…. πŸ˜‰

Wishing you all a peaceful and productive week….

Salaams y hasta la vista,
