…Grandma Patch got her parcel yesterday so now I can show you my recent efforts. She was very pleased and left a very excited message on my phone which entertained me a lot and I haven’t deleted so I can play it to Mr Patch!!! So here we go … card first…
I got out one of the books I got for christmas and whipped up some crochet flowers for her. The top one is an Irish Crochet Rose – had to have a couple of goes at this as I got the layers the wrong way round on the first attempt. The middle one is a Pansy obviously and the bottom one is a Six-Petal Daisy (which is a bit wonky!). I added the buttons which really seem to finish them off nicely. I also sewed safety pins to the back of the flowers, so she can take them off the card and use them elsewhere.
Onto the main event now. After considering other uses for my little houses and being spurred on by Rachell (thank you Rachell ;)) I used one of the bags from my pink parcel and made Grandma Patch her very own little house shopper. Here it is.
Its a strong canvas bag with short handles (I figured she would use that most). Due to a lack of labels I embroidered “patch” at the bottom instead. She was so pleased and was off to meet my Aunty for a meal last night and texted to ask if she could tell her about the blog (and maybe took the bag with her too???).
Right, I’m off to entertain Little J, who is pretty much recovered now (I can tell by the pestering I’m getting!) but not allowed back to play school until tomorrow (*sighs*). Keep watching this week for a hooky blanket update which is coming soon (its growing, SO EXCITED!!!!).
Enjoy your Tuesday everyone.
