My Latest Addiction

I've finally learnt to crochet! My Mum taught me to knit before I was 10 but, as Mum never crocheted I never learned either. When I met my OH his Mum tried to teach me but I was hopeless. I've always had a secret desire to get the hang of it, and when I found out the craft group I attend was learning how to crochet, I thought this is it, it's now or never. Molly had the task of teaching us and she didn't have an easy time of it, especially with me! Anyway she taught us how to do the basics and having found a tutorial on you tube I can now crochet these lovely flowers. They are far from perfect, yet, but I can't stop making them so fingers crossed if practice makes perfect I'll get there soon lol. I hope to start incorporating them into my card making so watch this space!
