Naturally I haven't given up crochet at all and one of my recent projects was a circular shawl for a new great nephew who arrived the day before yesterday.
Lots of bunnies. The babe's mother likes rabbits!!
I also want to tell you about this group i have joined you may have already heard about it. It is called
Random Acts of Crochet Kindness a group which was created by Olivia,a young lady who crochets in the UK.
Here is her interview and she will tell you all about it
Olivia's BBC radio interview
and should you like to join. Random acts of crochet kindness
She started the group on 31st August and now look at the amount of members she has got. People have joined from all over the world to spread crochet happiness and are they friendly yes they are! There was a lady who joined yesterday who lives on Sister Island in the Yukon,Canada.....long way away!!!
Anyhow I'll just show you a few of the crochet goodies (it doesn't just have to be flowers!) I have been placing here and there in my neighbourhood to spread some crochet kindness as Olivia says!!
I want to give this one to one of the post office assistant who always gives you a smile .
I left this one in the post office with my tag message.
This one on a bench in front of the retirement home.
These two hanging from a soft drinks dispenser. I saw the young lady who picked it up and she quickly clipped it to her bag!!!
Its fun and I like the idea that I am spreading some kindness and hopefully getting people to smile!

Sorry that should read"nephew" !!Delete
It's very nice to hear from you and see what's new with you. I just bought some yarn to try to crochet again. I've never been very good but I like to try! The acts of kindness is a wonderful idea! Hugs!ReplyDelete
Many thanks for calling in and its great to hear from you too. I find crochet pure therapy I just couldn't manage without I think! keep well Amanda xDelete
Many thanks Celia for calling in. I am inclined to agree with your description of facebook where I am not so comfortable in my role of crocheter and in fact I am eager to return to my blog where I am more at ease surrounded by my blog friends some of whom I have had since 2009 and new ones I hope to meet here in blogland in the future. As you so well described it our blogs are like a part of our home...very apt. I am determined to continue with my blog even if I cannot post as much as I would like to. keep well Amanda xReplyDelete
