and the 15 year old lads had a PS3 tournament party (1 involved a lot of input from me but was a ball as it was great to see the girls enjoying the crafts whereas the other involved throwing a few pizzas in front of the, it has to be said, very polite young gentlemen) then you can probably see my reasoning! And once the girls parties had finished, my daughters lovely friend stayed to carry on the crafting (mixed in with tennis and badminton) whilst I sat in the garden with my hook
So in true crafty moonstruck style, daughter asked me to make something for the young ladies to take home - she loves my crochet flowers, so I made a few:
salmon pink and lavendar:
spring green and purple:
lavendar and blue:
But rather than making them into corsages this time I attached them to headbands:
And it turned out that the girls could also wear them as necklaces and bracelets - multi-tasking with fashion at such a young age!!!!
I loved the look of all the flowers bunched up together:
Sue. We were also chatting about the totally amazing fact that I have now got 47 followers!!!!!!!!!!!!! "why dont you do a giveaway for when you reach 50 followers? And you could make a bunch of these flowers for the prize?" Now, I have known Sue for quite a while (!) and when she has an idea like that you can bet it is spot on. So there you have it dear bloggy friends - A GIVEAWAY!! The small print then:
you need to be a follower!
please leave a comment saying you are interested in the giveaway
My little blog needs to have hit at least 50 followers before the deadline which is 21 July (thought I would make this quite a long deadline as I know lots of you lovely people have holidays to look forward to!)
And thats it!
Well, Im off now for another coffee and then its hanging more washing out...
Have a great Sunday!
