We had a glorious week in Holland. It was one of those March weeks, when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it's summer in the light and winter in the shade.
Unfortunately, the last sentence is not by me, but by Charles Dickens :-). Don't you think his description of a March day, captures it perfectly?! I thought it was appropriate for the fine weather we have been enjoying in Holland last week. I spent a few hours in the garden and even managed to sit in the sun for a little while. Sheer joy!!!
My granny square blanket is growing steadily. I still enjoy crocheting the squares, but now and then I like to make something else for a change. Last week I crocheted some Spring flowers, which I used for a necklace and to pin on a bag.
The patterns came from a book I recently found, called 200 crochet flowers, embellishments & trims, which is really good. However, there are lots of tutorials to be found on the internet as well.
Tomorrow my brother will help me lay a new floor in our spare bedroom/craft room. I found some old curtains in the loft from years ago, which I am shortening. I haven't found an old desk yet, nor a bedside table, but there are still a few changes I can show you. I will give you an update next week!
