Quite a while ago I found a pattern via My Rose Valley called 'Maybelle Flower'. I made a few garlands from this lovely pattern. Later Annette wrote up a pattern to turn the Maybelle Flower into a square. I tried a sample:
baby blanket made out of these lovely squares. Well it being pay day and all I decided to treat myself to some of the yarn she stocks in her online shop. To cut a long story short the colours were out of stock but they should be delivered this week. But of course I had an urge to crochet which had to be satisfied so I got my much beloved and long term hexagon project out this weekend.
I decided to try my hand at making my own half hexagon to match. The first attempt wasn't very successful but the second one (on the right) fits perfectly.
Polka Dot Cottage for half hexagons and the little filler along the top which is the next experiment.
Apart from that I have done very little this bank holiday weekend. I went round to help Steph with the boys (Max is still poorly - he's been on antibiotics for a few weeks) and I played with Ben while she put Max to bed. Ben said "Brendie, can I come to your house to sleep tonight?" (Big hazel eyes....) He was already in his pyjamas and I had walked down but the night was fine so Steph packed some clothes in his bag and we wrapped him up in his Spiderman dressing gown. Along with Sandy the extremely dog-eared dog (under left arm), we walked round to my house.
It was really windy yesterday and there were HUGE amounts of seeds scattered up and down the road.
Well it's Max's first birthday on Friday - how quick did the past year go? I'm back to work tomorrow but off again on Friday. It's been a very lazy weekend - just what the doctor ordered.
