Do you believe in luck?

I believe in inner strength and the power of positive thinking.

I also believe in everything happening for a reason.

Pots of gold at the end of a rainbow.

Lucky rabbits, of which this is, my husband surprised me with her on Valentines, from I will never think of him as unromantic again. I had wanted one for so long.

Tonight I am using all of the above.

Learning to Crochet

Early this year I discovered Lucy at attic24 she inspired me to learn to crochet.
This was quite a challenge as my mum and gran had taught me so many homemaking skills but neither new how to crochet.

Then I remembered a lady on our campsite in Cornwall had crocheted my youngest daughter a blanket for her dolly.
Like a lot of children she would love to take her doll out for a walk in her pushchair naked, the lovely lady had been horrified and the next day had produced a beautiful pink blanket.

So the next time we were down at our fabulous retreat( i will show you pics soon)
I bravely knocked on her door and asked her to show me the basics.
These pic are some of my early projects.
