In bloom

Inspired by an article on Irish crochet in my magazine that I got a couple of weeks ago and the fact that I have a lot of fine thread to use - I have started making motifs.

This is a three dimensional flower that I completed today - it is minute - okay so that is my big hand but really - this flower is less than 5 cm at the widest part!

Very cute though.

My guess is this project will be on going for quite some time.

There was some crochet activity when Misses 12 & 15 were visiting last week but we were having too much fun to be taking photo's.

I have been in the kitchen too - inspired by a post over here I have been making kid friendly Rocky Road when required to bring a plate.

This lot is for work tomorrow, but I also made a batch to take to the family gathering last weekend, there weren't any left overs so I guess that means it passed the family test.

I'll try to remember to get a pic tomorrow before it is devoured.

Hope everyone has had a fabulous week.

Well I have caught the crochet bug as well but it will be a long long time before I could attempt anything as little as that flower! You do beautiful intricate work. Glad the rocky road is being enjoyed! Actually might make a batch to send off to Pony Club on Sunday, make me feel less guilty about staying home!

I love Rocky Road and make it a lot so I can pig out...I cant eat commercially made RR because of the nuts.

You really do like to challenge yourself don't you...teeny tiny flowers indeed. It's so delicate and pretty.
