Hello my lovely readers! As I type this post, I realise I have been away for far too long. Life has been pretty crazy and alas there has been little time for stitching. My eldest daughter has finished her exams and celebrated with an amazing Prom, and my youngest has learnt to sail.
The sun has began to shine, Geraniums are in full bloom and I have grown some Cucumbers plants for the first time.
The local council has finally opened our Prom to cyclists – its been such a treat to jump on my bike after work and take in the view.
And as if by magic, on the day I finally get to say hello to you all again, the Passion Flower I made my crochet flowers for has finally flowered!
Very beautiful young woman and dress : )
I’ll pass your kind compliments on to my daughter. Thank you. X
Hi I popped over to your blog the other day as I thought you must have Posted something recently and it had managed to slip past me – welcome back after your short break, you see you are missed. I thought you were going to say that you had made the prom dress….. It looks fabulous as does you daughter. I am ‘busy’ drawing the Geraniums in our garden as they look so happy in the sun; long may it continue.
Thank you for your lovely comment. I started to make her dress, but then she found this one in the shop and my handiwork just couldn’t compete!
Love Passion flowers, great photos. We live in Cornwall and we to are blesses with such a sight in the morning. I’m sure you could come up with a croched Passion flower ?

Thank your for your lovely comments. Cornwall is a fab place to live, I love visiting all the beautiful amazing handmade shops whenever I get down. I’ll get thinking about that Passion flower pattern!
Thank you, I was really surprised how they came out as i only took took on my old phone. X
Thank you. X
Sometimes life just gets busy doesn’t it?
Think I might ‘flower bomb’ my clematis… It gets to one or two flowers and then dies of wilt.
Sounds like a fab idea, looking forward to seeing a photo. X
That sounds fab. X
Her prom dress is GORGEOUS!
Thank you. It was a really lucky find. X
Thank you, it was really beautiful. The back was all laces and corset, will have to find a picture. X
Your daughter looks stunning for her prom. I love her dress.
Thank you. I was so proud of her.
Thank you. X
wow, that is a BEAUTIFUL flower!!! And the prom dress is gorgeous too.
Thank you. I can’t quite get over how bright the yellow is in the flower. Amazing.
Welcome back! Have finally started to crochet – it’s taking a while but will get there!
Thank you, I’m not sure what happened, one blogless week just led into another! Great to hear that you have started to crochet, are you enjoying it?
Yes I am, I find it much easier to “understand” than knitting. Wondering if people are either into knitting or crochet, a bit like either yoga or pilates! Just wish it would grow more quickly but I think I am missing the point – it’s the creating rather than the finishing that is important!
