Thought it was time I popped in to let you know that I haven't dropped off the planet - also to take the opportunity to wish you all a safe and happy Easter.
I've been working on my baby blankets (yes, I too have multiple things on the go at the same time) but don't seem to be making very much progress. Perhaps I really ought to just stick to one thing at a time. To break the monotony, I dabble with quick things in between and have just finished a crochet dog coat for an animal rescue who have especially requested small coats.
Its very hard to photograph a dog coat without a dog inside it but our little Tasha is sound asleep and I don't like to disturb her for a modelling assignment. Besides, she needs a bath !! This was a very easy pattern from Bernatcares.com. I had some Red Heart Soft in my stash and used that with a 5.00mm hook. Because they're so quick to make, I might try another in our Australian 8ply and make the next size up. I think the one I made will fit a Chihuahua or a small Jack Russell.
Before I finish, have a look at this gorgeous hyacinth plant I've been enjoying this week. Love the fragrance.
I'm hopeless when it comes to gardening so I'm not sure how long I can expect the flowers to last and what I need to do when they die. I was told that because they're bulbs, I should get more flowers next year. I'm hoping one of you lovely people can give me a bit of advice on how to look after my little plant.
Hope the Easter Bunny brings you lots of lovely eggs.
