A warm welcome to three new followers. I'm sorry but I haven't been able to work out who you are on the followers widget and therefore visit your blog too.
Please post a link to your blog here....thanks😊
My Pony Tail plant looking very happy!!
As the New Blogger interface seems to have settled down for me and is in working order ( I am whispering...just in case) I have got down to tidying up my blog and deleting bloggers who regrettably are now not here in Blogland with us anymore. I have also updated my Blog roll but should you not see yourselves there please shout out!!
I don't really want to write about doom and gloom.....we get enough of that from the media but I just feel I have to say my bit:
Mother Nature is again hitting hard out there in many parts of the world, although I don't blame her I am convinced it is retaliation for the way we ( as in all human beings) treat the environment!! I mainly blame the governments who are not doing enough to protect our world. It is all very well that we the people (or most of us) individually go out of our way to do what we can to be environmental friendly,but obviously it isn't enough. Our world and how it is organised needs a damn thorough spring clean and some people need to go back to school and also do their homework about being environmental friendly and why. Are they not aware that the poles are melting....the ozone layer is tremendously fragile and the Amazon"Earth's lung" is being destroyed....burnt to mine or sell off the land to big corporations. The governments of the world need to step in!! The selfishness and greed of a few will mean the destruction of this our beautiful planet!
Pushing the blues away with a bit of crochet talk :
My Spanish nephew likes a nice cuppa tea and he had bought himself a 6 cup teapot when he moved into his new apartment. He had seen me using a tea cosy and tried to buy one himself here in Alicante unsuccessfully! It didn't surprise me that he couldn't buy one. Tea cosys are not a Spanish thing and I have never seen any at all 😀 My last one my sister bought over for me from the UK from M&S. Therefore,I decided I could easily crochet one for him:
As you can see the cosy is a bit big for this 3 cup teapot but it snugly fits my nephew's 6 cup teapot .
This was not my own pattern. I will cite the designer when I find the pattern.
I dropped this RAOCK flower off to be found in the city centre last February. I went shopping walked past the bench where I had left it and it was gone!!
This is a Valentine flower I made last February in Red Heart sparkly yarn. You can't see the sparkles so much in the photo but it was really sparkly!!!
In my RAOCK stash. My Matron Flower Fairy,made last October, was inspired by lots of wonderful creations I've seen
on the web and a dose of my own imagination. It is free form so I
haven't got a pattern but I plan to make some more to correct a few
things I don´t like on this one particularly the face,my weak area. She is supposed to sit on a plant pot.
Have a great weekend!!
