Blooming marvellous!

Just popping in to share a very quick project with you. I'm off to Devon tomorrow to stay with an old Uni friend, Diane, and she's asked me to teach her to crochet. I have already directed her towards Attic24 - Lucy's crochet tutorials are excellent for both beginners and more experienced crocheters - and Diane has taken a fancy to the triple layer flowers. So I thought it best to have a go at making one myself first. I'm really pleased with the flower, I might well add a brooch fastening to the back. I'll let you know how we get on.

The Japanese anemones are in flower at the moment. They are scattered in patches all around the garden, giving little splashes of pink. Just lovely. See you after the weekend, I'm hoping that a cream tea will be on the agenda at some point! xxx
