Goin' crochet crazy!

Well I have had an up and down weekend it started off promising, as Daniel will be attending nursery 2 villages down the road I have managed to find a little space that I can rent to use as an office/studio, this will mean that I can drop him at play group and then I don't have to drive all the way home and then go back and pick him up 2 and a half hours later. I move in on Saturday....we went out for dinner with my mum and dad and a friend to celebrate mums birthday, it was a lovely meal and then the down hill turn occurred.

Daniel came down with something nasty Saturday evening, therefore scuppering any chance of me getting any sleep Saturday night.
He either had a sore throat, ear infection or big teeth coming through....thank goodness for Nurofen syrup!

I have however been keeping myself occupied doing a little bit of experimental crochet!
I had a lovely pattern for flowers and I bought a new book to show me exactly what stitches there are..... well Wednesday I saw Joanne and she borrowed the flower pattern, and I left my crochet book at her house by mistake!
So from memory and with a little artistic license I have made 2 more flowers!
yay for me!
I probably take longer choosing the button for the middle than I do crocheting it..... oh the indecision!

I also lacked a place to keep my hooks and needles and scissors so I made myself a little pouch, and then with some really thick wool and the memory of Attic 24's bag tutorial I managed to make a basket to keep my newly purchased buttons from Paperfish in

I am going to have a crack at making a valentines card too!
Nothing as fabulous as Dilly Dally Dingle but it will be made with love!
I won't crochet it either!

Well I had better get on and do some ...dare I say it .....Housework!

take care

It looks like you've been having a hooking good time with all that crochet. I like the little crochet hook pouch, I made one for my hooks but it's nowhere near as pretty as yours.

WOW! I love that crochet basket. Alas, I have not evolved further than worms on the crochet front, but my knitting seems to be shaping up well!! x

That's some seriously lovely crochetting.
I hope your wee Daniel is feeling better soon, I hate it when the smalls are poorly :(
And woohoo on finding some studio space :D
