Well a very happy good morning Friday to you, have you had any snow where you are it feels cold enough brrrrrrr!
I have been trying my best to take it easy this week after a bit of minor surgery last Friday but this hasn't been easy (hasn't happened), the stitches are being taken out on Monday although I am dreading that part, I also want them removed as they are agony, hope they aren't infected, they don't look like they are but they are really sore.
I have had a stack of orders this week and along with a web site to redesign for my Graphic Design business, I pretty much came out of theatre and had to get straight back on the sewing machine, I do love sewing and I also love the variety the graphic design offers but this week it has felt a little overwhelming at times. I had to call in for extra help with childcare to try to get through everything, it doesn't help that I am a picky perfectionist and hate being rushed. If a design hasn't worked or isn't quite how I want it I will unpick it rather than send it out a little imperfect. I am also addicted to my phone, in the evenings (when I have decided to take a break) I end up checking my facebook fanpage, twitter and my blog comments in almost every ad break!!
This week I decided I needed to sort this out otherwise I was never going to get a break, so I picked up the crochet hook to sit and crochet whilst watching the a film in the evenings. I learnt how to make little flowers using crochet last summer, you can read more about this here. I decided I could handle something a little more tricky, I found a pattern for Granny Squares from the Meet Me at Mikes book, the pattern is written in the English version of crochet which was handy and I also double checked my technique with a youtube tutorial.
After a few mishaps I started to get the hang of it.
I love how the little rounds don't look much to start with, but soon turn into joyous supercute little squares. Being a neat person I really love them once the ends are all sewn in!
