Day 15: Sunshine lace
This is a beautiful square pattern and so simple to make – it also helps that I chose a real sunny yellow/orange colour of yarn.
Day 16: Webbed lace
This is the most unusual pattern I’ve come across yet and it involves lots of dtr’s. The webbing effect shows how well dtr’s can be used in making up crochet patterns.
I hope all you Mums had a lovely Mother’s Day. I was treated to a porcelain jug with ‘love’ stamped on it – from Elsie and Poppy got me the ‘Happy Hooker‘ crochet book. I also treated myself to a gorgeous bunch of roses and the latest edition of Mollie Makes.
Today Poppy told me that she would like to bake some fairy cakes so I got out one of my favourite recipes and gathered the ingredients together. Elsie decided she wanted to see what all the fuss was about so she sat in her highchair and chewed on a rubber spoon while we got down to business.
Poppy insisted on decorating the cakes herself some with hundreds and thousands and the others with sugar ducks and rabbits.
