It’s was my birthday on Thursday, no biggie, another year older and all that! But I got the best gift I could of asked for, besides, family, health and happiness naturally!
I’m lucky and I don’t really want for much, but I’d never go and spend a lot of money in myself, unless it’s yarn of course 🙈, anyway, for my birthday my parents and my sister and brother in law clubbed together and got me something amazing!!!
How lucky am I!!!! A whole day of pure relaxation, crocheting by a log fire in a country barn, being waited on hand and foot, with frank and olive!! Eeeeeeekkkkkkk!!!!! Apparently we arrive at 10am and have a bite to eat, then we go into a session with Frank and olive, break for lunch at 13:00 and then they have a guest designer coming in to do another workshop, the day finishes at 18:00, all yeah is included and there’s a Christmas gift under the tree, are you jealous!!!!!
As designers I really like Frank and olives modern designs, so I can’t wait to meet with them! If you want to find out more about it or make yourself green with envy have a nosey at their page for the retreat www.thecrochetretreat.co.uk

Ive finally gotten my head around block 3, I kept going wrong and couldn’t figure out why! Then I realised that I stupidly had 9 petals instead of 8 🙈 anyway I’ve done all 4 now and I’m pleased with them, just goes to show, don’t crochet tired!
I love making blankets, and tops, but I’m not very good at anigurami! But I thought I’d give it a go, my brother in law is going into hospital on Wednesday to have some of his bowel removed, unfortunately they’ve found pre cancerous cells, luckily they’ve found them before anything more sinister occurred, but he’s obviously scared, he’s also a mega geek! He commission paints war hammer figures and is very talented, loves anything marvel, so I thought I’d make him an anigurami to take into hospital, I chose captain America, he is the bravest super hero (apparently!) please don’t laugh, it’s not very good, and my first attempt, if @itchy crochet is reading this she’ll have a chuckle! Anyway, I swapped the A for an I for Ian
Anyway on with my mandala madness which is becoming hotter on my knees as it gets heavier!!
Happy hooking xxx
