Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...



It has been quite a while since I have done any crochet, knitting suddenly seemed to take over and work filled up the rest of my time.
Then yesterday evening, I sat outside with Himself in the evening warmth and felt an itch. A crochet itch.
 I almost tried to suppress it then I decided that I would give in and soon ruffled around in my cotton yarns and found several shades of blue....an idea began to formulate.  I washed out an olive jar that I had already designated to the recycling, removed its label and lid and started crafting.
The next morning, with help from Pepper, I crocheted a few more rows then it was time to pack up for a walk. Of course I took my WIP with me and when I could, did a row or two more.
Then, on the way home in the car, I finished the last few rows.
 Filled with a sprig of alchemilla mollis and a few sweet peas it make my heart skippity skip 
and I am happy happy happy :)
Oh crochet - why have I left it you so-oo long!?!


  1. Beautiful Pepper and beautiful jar cover Hawthorn! I'm so glad that Pepper was able to help you out with it - she is obviously mesmerised by it!!!

  2. Welcome back to crochet, it's very pretty

  3. That looks really lovely, what an excellent idea!

  4. That is really lovely. You could actually have a couple of jar covers in other colours so you could change to tone in with the flowers. Easy to store if they are just crocheted covers. xx

  5. I agree with Angela, welcome back to crochet! Glad to see Pepper is also interested in crochet.....
