"Hello Spring - Welcome Back"
One of my New Years Resolutions was to learn to crochet because I wanted to make the lovely Christmas Wreath over at Attic 24.
Well - I'd done that (the basic part anyway) by mid February so decided I would make a nice little Spring Wreath ready for Easter.
I used the same principle as for the Christmas Wreath but added some crochet daffodils (pattern here). I did have a few issues with the daffs - the pattern shows 6 petals but on my first attempt I ended up with 7 - but I've kept it in because it reminds me of my gaff!
The wreath is polystyrene so I have just pinned on the decorations so I can change them or add to them in the future if I want.
I asked the children if they liked it (I know - I should have known better) and Little Miss L said enthusiastically "I LOVE the little chicks on it Mummy". Hmm. The one bit I didn't make! She likes the cheap chicks from the £1 shop! Oh well!
Thankfully Mr H was slightly more enthused than he was when I festooned the fireplace in felt hearts (see here) for Valentines. I think he learnt his lesson!
Anyhow - I'm really happy with how its turned out. Its sunshiney and it makes me smile!
